Modules on this course include:
- Leadership and Professional Development (60 credits)
This course consists of one 60-credit module. This module focuses on personal and job related development in a professional career context. Students are encouraged to explore how they fit into the world of employment, to take their understanding of self to discover and investigate professional environments, roles and cultures which are compatible with their needs and abilities.
The module will encourage students to reflect upon their ambitions and options and provide them with the tools and the environment to identify and explore career and employment goals. The content will enable them to diagnose, plan and execute appropriate actions to achieve these goals, which may include knowledge and practice of recruitment processes, appropriate work experience, identification and promotion of personal achievements and development of networks.
The module will also engage students in a place based project. This will be a work-based project (WBP) and is an excellent developmental opportunity which enhances the student’s organisational and specialist knowledge. These elements are crucial to this module and subsequent career progression. Students who are in a workplace will be able to negotiate a project within their workplace. Students who are yet to gain a position will be offered a range of case study place based projects which will cover a range of subject areas including entrepreneurial projects. The project is intended to provide evidence of the student’s personal and professional qualities via a tangible work-based achievement.
This module can be summarised into two key elements: Practical Placement Project or Study, and Reflective Practice.
