Completing your reflective journal

You are expected to complete a reflective journal for each time that you cook as part of your assessment for this unit. Try to think about the highlights of each service when you are writing your reflection. You might also find the following questions useful:

·         What skills and techniques did I use?

·         What policies and procedures did I follow?

·         How did I ensure efficiency, safety and quality?

·         How did I ensure that my dishes met quality standards?

·         What did I learn during the service and how might I apply it in future?

·         What might I do different next time?

Supervisor declaration

Your workplace supervisor’s feedback forms an important part of the assessment process and it is essential you have your supervisor complete their section of each of your reflective journals and fill in the supervisor declaration after the summary section. Keep in mind that, if you are completing your assessment in your RTO’s training kitchen, your trainer will be your workplace supervisor and should endorse your journal. Without their endorsement, your Logbook will be incomplete and it is likely to be returned to you for resubmission.

Logbook summary

There are a number of requirements you must fulfil within your assessment process, so a Logbook Summary has been provided. Make sure you keep this section up to date – it will help you keep track of any outstanding requirements.

Supervisor Declaration Section

Note for student: Please note, that one of these declarations must be completed by each workplace supervisor. If you completed all your shifts at the one venue then you would only submit one. If your logbook contains entries from different kitchens and venues then please have each supervisor you work under complete one at the end of all your designated shifts. Please provide this page to your workplace supervisor at the completion of your required shifts.

This needs to be completed in addition to the supervisor endorsement section of your reflective journals. One copy has been provided in this logbook but you can make additional copies as needed.
