Work experience, placement or a job in a related industry are an essential part of the programme. It is feasible to utilise existing employment if the employer is in agreement. For students who are not employed in the industry, the onus is on the student to identify and acquire their own placement, however assistance will be given.
The programme is assessed through a variety of methods including: essays, formal reports, reflective critiques, individual presentations, and an exam (for the Tourism, Leisure and Hospitality programme only - in year 1). Assessment of work-based learning is evidenced through the production of a self-reflective document, examining ‘critical incidents’ in depth. In a number of modules, the employer has 10% of the student’s mark and gives individual feedback on a number of competencies: self-management and development; managing tasks; communicating clearly and effectively; working with and relating to others; applying initiative in work problems; the ability to meet learning outcomes. The programme allows 120 credits at each level.
