Learning, Teaching and Assessment (LTA) Approach:
Learning & Teaching methods including their alignment to Los
The student is expected to negotiate the focus and aims of their employment focussed project which will be stated explicitly in the learning agreement (LO1). The learning agreement must be approved by their line manager/project supervisor as well as the module leader prior to the student embarking upon its implementation. Through Moodle, students will have access to materials (at a time, place and pace that suits them) that will support the development of their learning agreement as well as resources to facilitate their learning and the use of appropriate work-related project skills, critical thinking and analysis, reflection, problem solving and decision making tools (LOs 2-4). Students will be supported throughout the module by an academic supervisor. Tutor support is provided via e-mail and online tutorials that flexibly utilise asynchronous and synchronous forms of communication to meet individual needs or face to face communication as requested.

Embedding of employability/PDP/Scholarship Skills
This module facilitates the development of the following key employability skills: negotiation; knowledge of working practices and work-related project skills; problem solving skills; reflection; report writing skills and working independently and self-critically.

Assessment (formative or summative)
The assessment strategy has been designed to be integral to the learning process. Formative assessment will occur through the learning activities and check points at key stages throughout the module with constructive feedback provided. There will also be further opportunity for formative feedback as students will be encouraged to submit a draft of sections of their project report prior to final submission. The summative assessment is submitted in three parts. The learning agreement which forms the basis for the employment focussed project (LO1); a project report resulting from the employment focussed project (LOs 2 and 3) and a reflective commentary on the process of conducting an employment focussed project (LO4).
