Learning, Teaching and Assessment (LTA) Approach:
This is a work-based learning module which requires students to complete a substantial amount of work-based experience. Course materials will be delivered through a series of online lectures, electronic workbooks and directed readings in relation to carrying out a needs analysis, identifying opportunities for individual development, sourcing and agreeing a suitable work placement, and agreeing a set of objectives for the placement. This process will be supported by the careers team as well as allocated supervisors for each student. Where appropriate, a suitable tutor from within the work placement will be identified to assist in supporting the student although this is not essential, for example where the placement covers more than one area of industry. Students must undertake a minimum of 75 hours of work experience, either in an existing organisation or in an enterprising capacity provided this aligns with their learning agreement. All students will be required to maintain regular contact with their supervisor throughout the project. Additionally, students will be expected to engage with online discussions, to regularly update their own weblog and to comment upon their peers’ weblogs throughout the module.

There are two elements to the summative assessment: a proposal and a portfolio. The proposal must be submitted by week 15 in the first trimester of study and must include an individual learning agreement and a rationale for their appropriateness in the chosen environment.

The portfolio, which must be submitted by week 15 of the third trimesters of study, must contain evidence of the work-based experience and demonstrate the extent of any enterprising activities with reference to suitable theory. The portfolio must also make extensive reference to contemporary issues taught across the wider programme and students must evidence their ability to apply a wide range of theory to a specific scenario. Students must also critically reflect on their learning ex

Formative Assessment:
Careers advisers will provide individual advice relating to the development of an individual needs analysis and CV and identification of explicit career goals which will students will be expected to use to inform the development of the learning agreement. Further formative assessment occurs through supervisor feedback at regular intervals throughout the module and from peer contributions to online discussions and feedback on weblogs. In addition, students will be expected to present online their progress at the halfway point of their work based experience (agreed within the proposal) to allow the opportunity for feedback from their supervisor and to make changes as necessary.

Description of module content:

This module is designed to augment previous work-based learning and to consolidate the learning that has occurred at the programme level on the BA Business and Enterprise in Sport. The module supports students’ professional development through evolving their industry recognised competencies and understanding and application of theory into a work-based environment. The approach to this will involve students carrying out their own needs analysis as well as that of a selected work environment (supported by their governing body, sports agent or sports institute), agreeing a set of objectives including the implementation of a new practice, and then reflection of the success or otherwise of the intervention. Consistent with the principles underpinning the programme, flexibility and application of theory within a specific context are central tenets of the module, and students will be expected to evidence each stage of the module from proposal to report. Within the first trimester, students will be required to submit a proposal which identifies a work placement that will provide a substantial opportunity to apply their knowledge towards an explicitly outlined goal. This will develop organisational and project planning skills commensurate with this level of module. Alternatively, students may elect to pursue enterprise activities by, for example, setting up a new business. Students must then undertake and log a minimum of 75 hours of work-based experience, primarily within their 2nd and 3rd trimester, ensuring effective time management, evidence collection and processing and appropriate development of competency in relation to their agreed objectives. Students will then reflect and report on the experience using an evidence based approach towards the end of their 3rd trimester.

Learning Outcomes for module:

LO1: Carry out an individual needs analysis based on your existing CV and formulate an individual learning agreement with an appropriate evidence based rationale
LO2: Complete and log a minimum of 75 hours work-based experience.
LO3: Critically reflect on new learning using an appropriate reflective model.
LO4: Extract core issues relating to enterprise or work-based practices within the chosen environment.
LO5: Evidence ability to make effective use of creative and inventive skills in relation to business/enterprise.
