The majority of references should come from primary sources (e.g., journal

specific textbooks. You must ensure that you use the Harvard style of referencing.

Please indicate the word count length at the end of your assignment.


Please note that you are required to submit an extended literature review project

where you will critically evaluate scholarly articles and books in order to answer

specific research questions.





Written assignment instructions: An outline (please the template below) briefly mentioning the points that you

will develop for your final assessment in week 8. You will need to mention each basic point in a few words (100-200 words) and provide the sources you will use to develop your points after you conduct your research on the two topics. Make sure to conduct your literature search for academic sources and then narrow them down to the ones that are useful for your essay to back up your arguments with valid information.

The main objectives of your final assessment in week 8 that you will need to develop further and base your outline on for this formative task are: Part 1: A summary discussing all the theories and models discussed in the course. Part 2: A critical reflection of taking a leadership stance and/or application of mentoring skills in your practice.

IMPORTANT NOTES  You will need to separate your outline to Part 1 – Summary Report and

Part 2 – Critical Reflection  You DO NOT need to go through the material after week 4 of the course

to develop your outline, as you can add more points and observations to your outline as the course progresses.

 This is a task for you to prepare and conduct the pre-writing process that will help you further with the writing process of your final assessment.

 After you submit your outline your tutor will provide their feedback and you can resubmit if necessary.

 This task is NOT graded.
