Description of module content:

This module is based on a project in your workplace which is used to demonstrate the application of skills and knowledge of the standard required of an honours level graduate within the Apprenticeship framework. The project will take 6 months at the end (or near the end) of your programme. The employer and university will develop an individualised learning agreement for you which ensures that the project is achievable within your employer’s business constraints and meets the requirements of the university.

You will be required to document your assumptions and to highlight the consequences of those assumptions – enabling you to show your understanding of commercial pressures, and the application of your thinking and problem solving skills.
