Assessessment Description

Written Reports & Presentation

Learners are required to prepare a report which will have two sections:

  • Section 1 (60%) will describe the organisation, its aims, ethos, business model and the business issue under review and make recommendations about how the issue can be addressed. The report should be typed, laid out and paginated in a professional manner. (2000 words approx.)
  • Section 2 (20%) – will be a reflection on the experience and learning in this module. Much of the work based learning module requires research, reflection on practice and liaising with work place staff teams and supervisors. The focus of this section is to record the learning journey experienced by the Learner. The journal itself is not submitted for assessment, but it is a necessary information source for the Reflective Learning Report Section which is submitted for assessment. (500 word approx.)
  • On completion of their placement, each student will give a brief presentation (20%) based on their reflective learning report where they will give an overview of their key learning experiences.

Work Based Learning (Elective)

Aims & Objectives

The aims of this module are to provide an experiential learning context that will consolidate and integrate the programme modules.  It is designed to provide the learner with the opportunity to complete a relevant project for an organisation (public, private or voluntary).

The learner will identify an issue within the organisation that merits investigation and draw upon a wide range of specialised or conceptual information in order to formulate a response appropriate to that issue.
