Course content

This course offers part-time, negotiable study that values workplace learning, recognising your expertise in your chosen field, and will allow you to be rewarded for prior experiential learning. It is usually possible to commence studies throughout the academic year.

Our course will enable you to ‘learn while you earn’.

The first module will help you to undertake a self-audit and complete a claim for prior learning (if appropriate) where learning in the workplace can be rewarded academically. It also provides the opportunity for needs analysis and action planning, in order to enable you to successfully create an individual pathway of study and gain an award title that meets your learning needs. This award title will relate to your area of professional practice.

The course offers flexible and adaptable study for those seeking professional development opportunities, and for whom customised courses relating directly to the work setting are the most effective way of achieving their objectives.
