Learning, Teaching and Assessment (LTA) Approach:
The student is required to be employed as a Graduate Apprentice based in and around Edinburgh to be eligible to complete this module, in this format. This module is offered in day release (GA) study mode and will be delivered during the period that students are attending classes from 9 am to 5 pm, one day per week. The delivery of the module is in line with normal university delivery models. The traditional lecture materials will be delivered in a blended form using online materials, while in-class time is devoted to practical exercises, projects, or discussions. The module is designed around online and student-centred learning in practice with an emphasis on building a learning community. The module is introduced by an induction workshop which introduces students to the online resources and explains the assessment process.
