    • Evidence of your understanding and skills. This could be in any suitable format
         and may be supported by translation where necessary, such as:
            o records from an expert witness or training mentor of discussions they
                have had with you about your understanding
            o any other evidence that was produced during the activities or tasks
                assessed, such as notes, e-mails or records
    • A personal log reflecting on your own role, responsibilities and skills
