All modules across the FD typically consist of 5 days teaching. During class-room based sessions there will be some traditional taught sessions involving lectures and seminars however you will be expected to engage in interactive activities. These may include debate, discussion, group work, role-play, problem solving and participant-led presentations.
All modules will have directed learning activities which are completed in your own time often during evenings, weekends and days-off. This may require you to complete some pre-reading in order to prepare for a taught session, or, some reflective work to consolidate your learning after a taught session. Self-directed work is also completed in your own time, these are activities that you undertake without direction from the University in order to complete assessments and to maximise you learning on the programme.
Work-based learning is where you learn for and in the work-place. It is centred on your role development, therefore you will be expected to complete work-based competencies, reflections and case studies that help you learn new skills and knowledge, practise them, reflect upon them and succeed.
