Work-Based Learning Portfolio Guidance 

Week-by-Week Schedule

This information has been designed to help you plan your work
when compiling your Work-Based Learning portfolio. The checkboxes
in the Example columns can be used to keep track of your progress. 

Please note: You are not restricted to following the Outcomes in this order. For example, if during week 1 you are required to carry out legal research, you can swap this for another Outcome. Each Outcome below contains a link which will take you to guidance on the evidence required to meet this Outcome. You may be able to use the same piece of evidence to satisfy more than one Outcome, where this might be possible the other Outcomes are identified in the guidance. 

Where an Outcome requires two examples, please ensure you provide a completed logbook sheet and evidence for each example. Each logbook sheet should be placed in front of the evidence.
