Comms TAQ 1 & TAQ 2

Postby kerry » Fri Jun 19, 2009 4:08 pm

Hope someone wise out there can help me! I've been given access to the Comms module but haven't yet been assigned my Level 3 tutor so was hoping someone else out there could help me instead.

For TAQ 1 - did you do bullet points for the 'what you are looking for in an HE institution and course' bit and then write a bit on 'how this relates to your career choice for the future'.??
Also what sort of number of words/pages did most people do?

For TAQ 2 - did you write bit of blurb first then list all the other bits (Education, work experience, health, interests etc) almost just as bullet points or did you do something completely different?

Thanks everyone

For the first one i wrote about the uni's I had chosen and why, proximity to home and location of placements and reputation etc

Just did it as a "story" a bit about my past and my present and why I want to do the course and where it might lead me

I've made a bullet point list of what I needed from a uni and from the course and I've done a table of the 5 uni's I've researched in details.
Is that wrong?
Thanks!

I know i havent started the course yet, but i did attend a Pre-access course at my local college over the past few weeks ( was planning to do access at college but didnt go to plan).

Anyway, i did an essay and put bullet points in it and my tutor said it is a big no no. Not to put bulet points in essays.

Hope this helps

TAQ 1 - I did a table of what I wanted in a HE institution and then I compared several in a table with the things I was looking for. I also explained a bit about why I was looking for those certain things e.g. childcare... I have a kid.

TAQ 2- I just wrote half a page about what I wanted to do... I did all this -
Education, work experience, health, interests etc)
As a CV

Write TAQ 1- Yes I did it as a report my bad, it was a while ago. I used the following headings -

Introduction
Discussion
Searching For Institutions
Comparing the Institutions
Conclusion
Findings

Things I compared - distance, it facilities, childcare, parking etc

I used tables in the report to compare the different institutions etc.

TAQ 2 -

I did a a4 page about the following -
1. why I want to be a midwife
2. why i chose the access course
3.what skills I have and other training that im currently doing
4. what im goign to try and do e.g. volunteer work
5. how i have some previous experience working with children and parents.

Hope that helps.

Consider yourself kicked!!! :D

To be fair once you get going you can rattle through the first part but the research does take a while.. but it will be worth it!!!!

Thanks Guys from reading your questions and answers you gave me the push I needed to sit and do my Communications this afternoon, bit of a mixture on the first of a non lab report and plain old report :)

firstly start by putting the heading - introduction

and write about why your writing the report for e.g. looking for suitable universities, facilities etc etc

Thats to get you started hope that helps :)

It only has to be about a paragraph

It's good to know there are other people who are just starting out with this and finding it tough.

Those who have done this/are doing it - did you handwrite or type your report.

I've already done a lot of the research and know what uni's I want to apply to so i have most of the research
