I am a student at Stockport College and studying Health andSocial Care Level 3. I am interested in doing business management as my career.I am motivated in doing this because of my involvement in the business worldthrough my family. I aspire to do humanresource management which involves me working as a manager because I want tomanage my own nursery. Within my familyI am included in the planning and implementation of the orphanages in theSouthern Africa.
My family is involved in self-employment and projects; iturges me to do business management as an area of interest. We have just visitedone of the orphanage projects in Zimbabwe. We also went to Botswana wheremeetings were held and a letter of proposal was handed in. In response to thatletter Botswana welcomed are project and land was identified.
Therefore as part of these projects I aminterested in their management. I am an individual who is self-motivated and good with timemanagement. The reason why I say this is because I am capable of submitting my assignmentson time.
In addition to this, I am well organised because I have alreadystarted reading books based on business and preparing my mind for what is readyto come for example reading about how marketing allows a business to sell productsor services to other companies or organisations. I have done work experience at a nursery where I taughtchildren self-independence and numeracy and literacy skills. By being at theplacement I was able to improve on my initiative skills and gain more knowledgeon what is the importance of effective communication and training. When referring to business environments,training is important because the majority of employees will have someweaknesses in their workplace skills therefore training will allow them tostrengthen those skills.
Effectivecommunication is important within business because when wanting to have a goodteam, a good leader is essential. As a leader they should be able to have theskill to be able to communicate effectively with every individual that is involvedwithin the business. A leader that is able to communicate effectively is ableto have a team that performs well, this is something I demonstrated when I tookthe lead of a group activity and it was my responsibility to make sure thateveryone is participating and no one is left out. I have done work experience at stepping hill hospital as a careassistant. My experience allowed me to identify that you can’t always be askingindividuals what to do but it is always important to know how to use yourinitiative because the staff are usually really busy or there is not enoughstaff in. Being able to use your initiative within business is importantbecause it shows a willingness to get things done and a way of takingresponsibility. I am currently doing work experience at Clyde house nursinghome where I am involved in personal care and supporting the residents.
Also Iam involved in day to day activities of family fostering and my mum’s charityshop and by being part of the activities I have learnt that patients is animportant skill to have especially when wanting to own a business the benefitsof this is because it allows the business to reach their goal and also itallows the manager of the business to control their mind and behaviour to be atpeace so when a situation appears they are able to react in a way that isappropriate. I am willing to develop my understanding and skills based onhuman resource management so then I am able to pursue a career within thisfield once I have completed my studies. I believe the Business management course willbe able to provide for me with all the necessary tools which will be vital fora head start business. The benefits of me doing human resource management isthat it will allow me to achieve a business that is able to identify thetraining needs for the staff also it will allow me to be able to achievestructuring teams and allow me to be able to build the business culture.
