Write a short summary of between one and two sentences describing the facts surrounding the situation, how it affected the organisation, the project, the customers, etc. and any problems and difficulties that you encountered. Convey the significance of what was done and how it affected the outcome, together with some brief details of what was involved.
Action (what you did)
This is really the most important part, as it concerns explaining what you actually did. Give a brief summary of the critical actions you personally took that relate to the competency in question. The best way to approach this is to ask yourself:
What were the one or two key things I did that had the greatest impact upon the final result?
Try to focus on the actions that relate to the specific competency in question, as often a set of critical actions may provide evidence of several competencies.
Proportion of the achievement for which you personally claim credit
Try to be specific about the situation, the tangible results achieved and the part you played in achieving that result. This is particularly important if you were acting as part of a team. Highlight the role you actually played in achieving the outcome rather than focusing too much on the team activities. Note the proportion of the achievement for which you claim credit.
Candidates are required to send in a one page cover letter. It should be able to show the STAR structure:
Situation a brief sentence or two to set the scene and give the context
Target (or Task) the specific aspects you focussed on and why
