Learning, Teaching and Assessment (LTA) Approach:
Learning & Teaching methods including their alignment to LOs
The student is expected to negotiate a set of personal learning outcomes designed to develop his/her employability skills. These outcomes will be included in a Learning Agreement indicating how they will be met (LO 1). The Learning Agreement must be approved prior to students embarking upon its implementation. As the Learning Agreement is implemented the student will compile a personal portfolio (LO 3) of their learning which will include evidence of attainment as well as reflective and critical analysis (LO 2). 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 use of critical thinking and analysis, reflection and tools and examples of what may constitute evidence for inclusion in their portfolio. Students will be supported in this process of developing and implementing their learning agreement by an academic supervisor who will have knowledge and expertise in the area under study

Embedding of employability/PDP/Scholarship Skills
The module is focussed on empowering the students to identify personal and professional development need and employability skills

Research / teaching linkages
Students are required to provide an evidence base when meeting their learning outcomes. Module content within Moodle uses an appropriate research and evidence base which is refreshed / updated prior to the module running.

Supporting equality and diversity
The method of module delivery provides a means of individualising hig

Formative Assessment:
Assessment (formative or summative)
The Learning Agreement will involve formative feedback in its development, although this will form Component 1 of the module assessment and will be the first summative assessment. The Component 2 Portfolio assessment although summative requires significant reflection on skills development.

Summative Assessment:
Assessment (formative or summative)
The Learning Agreement will involve formative feedback in its development, although this will form Component 1 of the module assessment and will be the first summative assessment. The Component 2 Portfolio assessment although summative requires significant reflection on skills development.

Description of module content:

The purpose of this module is to allow students to enhance their employability by developing relevant skills and knowledge. This will be achieved by building on previous work and volunteering experience and giving students the familiarity of working in their own chosen discipline. Content will focus on students evaluating their own strengths and weaknesses and identifying a work placement or applied sport development project that will allow them to continue to develop as sport and exercise practitioners.

Learning Outcomes for module:

Upon completion of this module you will be able to:
LO1: Develop a learning agreement based on your actual or desired employment role and personal development needs.
LO2: Demonstrate critical analysis and reflection on the development of academic, intellectual, personal and employability skills
LO3: Produce a portfolio of evidence to meet the outcomes agreed in the Learning Agreement
