Reflection is a personal response to an experience, situation, event or new information. By revising the prior experience and give a careful thought or consideration over an act, event, procedure and so on in order to analyze the stength, weakness, trying to explain the factors contributing to the success or failure of a mission and arriving at a proposal to seek a logical solution to resolve any problem that come in the way.

'a deliberate process when the candidate takes time, within the course of their work, to focus on their performance and think carefully about ....particular actions, what happened and what they are learning from the experience, in order to inform what they might do in the future'. (QCA, 2001, 8) 

Reflective writing enable us to make connection theory and practice to by:

  • explore and explain an event
  • identify the challanging or successful part of the encounter
  • evaluate the supporting factors whether they are disirable, ethical, practical, relevant to contribute to the success or other wise
  • come out with a suggestion or solution to improve on the existing practice so that the attainment may be higher, better, the measure and precaution taken in the future to be more effective, efficient, etc.
