Cassidy Stenning


Your Role


Through this unit you explored the role you are targeting, and improved your understanding of it. You explored the skills you’ll need to impress prospective employers and where your future career path is likely to take you. Alongside this, you gained insight into the industry and got the opportunity to speak to an expert in the field - 👏🏼 you did a lot.


Module Overview


Module 1 | My Role, My Skills

What was awesome 👏🏼

Completed the skills check realistically and quickly. Well done. You then converted these into clear strengths and weaknesses aligned to yourself and the role. You focused quite carefully on the great experiences you can bring to a scientific role. In this you identified that your lack of confidence was an issue.

What would of made it even more awesome 🚀

You struggled (understandably) to come up a plan to help you address the lack of confidence you highlighted and this needs more development.

Planning how the weaknesses would be addressed would have been improved by more tangible actions that would increase your confidence. This is not a criticism, but more a recognition that you're unsure what to do about your lack of confidence.


Module 2 | My Future Self

What was awesome 👏🏼

You reviewed and researched some information and were able to answer all questions on the survey effectively.The strongest part of this exercise was in your abillity to be clear on the career path and type of employer you would like to work for.

What would of made it even more awesome 🚀

It seems you're missing some information on what entry requirements and qualifications you would need to move into the apprenticeship. I will email you with some places to research this, if you would like to review this. I think you should have an awareness of this. 


Module 3 | My Chosen Industry

What was awesome 👏🏼

Massive kudos to you Cassidy for making the call with Heidi. You put together a really professional introduction with a clear idea of what you would like to learn from her. Heidi's feedback is that you were great on the phone 'lovely' to speak to. (So do we!) 

I know this was a step you were really challenged by and I'm massively impressed you made the step and had the call. Well done. You may not see this, but achievements like this will increase your confidence speaking with others.

What would of made it even more awesome 🚀

Simply belief in yourself. You may feel that lack of confidence, but other people don't report this back. We think you're great Cas, as does Heidi. Your character is completely suited to the scientific world and being shy and reserved when speaking to others is quite appropriate.

Summative Feedback


You're work through this first of 3 units has been interesting to be part of. I am absolutely sure you don't rate your quality highly enough and worry about the confidence in speaking to others. Throughout this experience I'm watching you gain confidence and challenge yourself. I also see you worrying about that lack of confidence. You come across really well and should keep challenging yourself - confidence is gained through familiarity.

Our engagement with you and talking with Heidi has shown that actually you are good at communicating to others. Please build on this positive report of your communication.

It's great working with you and supporting you in all this. 

Well done! 👊🏻
