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.

Formative Assessment:
Tutorial/practical sessions are used to provide formative feedback for students on the module. During these sessions, module tutors assess and evaluate student performance on tasks relevant to the summative assessment, providing timely feedback which supports the development of students’ capabilities.

Summative Assessment:
The courseworks are designed to provide evidence of key skills. The first coursework (LO1) will enable early intervention where appropriate. In each case the coursework will include a demonstration of the software which has been developed. This is chance for students to reason about their design and implementation decisions and get immediate feedback. The second
coursework (LOs 1-4) will also contain a report detailing the software development process: including design decisions, implementation issues and test cases.
