My brain has turned to absolute mush and despite numerous attempts haven't been able to 'achieve' this module

Below is the briefing of the module. If anyone can send me a copy of their table etc for me to see where I am going wrong / what I am missing I would be eternally grateful!



Using the timetable approach to assignment planning, you should firstly list all of the stages that you are going to need to complete for your unit 5 assignment, from reading the assignment brief to producing a first draft, through to producing your final draft and submitting it for marking.

You must review the unit 5 assignment brief and the relevant assessment criteria before producing your assignment plan. Your assignment plan must then include the structure and format of the unit 5 assignment, including any sections, headings and word count(s).

Where you include the first draft you need to break this down into the different sections you will need to write for an illustrated report following the recommended report format that is in section 1.1 of the study materials for the ‘Academic Writing Skills’ unit. Each section within the report format includes an indicative number of words; you should incorporate this information into your assignment plan.

You then need to allocate each of the stages a suitable time frame for completion. The submission date for your report is 10 days from today and the start date is today. Ensure that you use actual dates within your assignment plan and not ‘week 1’, ‘week 2’ etc.

Once you have done this, you should enter all of your stages and their allocated time frame for completion into a timetable or chart. Refer to the timetable provided in the Assessor Guidance for this assignment.

You can then review your timetable to ensure that your time scales are realistic and that you are going to be able to submit your assignment by the set deadline.

The timetable approach to assignment planning should include:-
• An outline of the content, format, structure and layout, including relevant word counts
• Deadline for the production of the first draft
• Allocated time for proofreading and amending
• Deadline for the production of the final draft
• Allocated time for final checking
• The submission date

This task aims to support the development of assignment planning skills.

You should refer to your study materials for additional guidance and to check what you should include in an assignment plan. You should pay particular attention to the section that explains ‘the timetable approach to assignment planning’.

This sounds dangerously like, "complete this assignment for me", and this briefing is very thorough, I am sure you'll be fine.

I agree with Anonymous above - surely you can make an attempt at the assignment plan, and then show that attempt to your lecturer to check that you're on the right track? If someone sends you their work, they don't know if you will copy it and pass it off as your own.

I’m sorry that you’ve read and interpreted it that way. I sent this post late at night having spent another evening, after a full day at work, working towards this question as best I can, in a bid to get some helpful advice.
I gave the full briefing above as when I looked for pointers on other posts, didn’t find anything that matched up with the exact assignment.
My tutor has given feedback, which I’ve made suggested amendments to, but feeling a little disheartened by two submissions which still have work to add to.
Hope you both have a nice evening.

Wow.. is this not what forums and chats are for? To ask for advice?
Do something better with your time than pick at somebody’s plea for help. We’ve all been there!

When someone requests to see someone's work, it's not always for innocent reasons, so anyone is right to question it. They didn't ask specific questions about what they needed help with, so it's hard to advise. :dontknow:
