Programme specification:

The programme will provide a relevant professional qualification for people working in a range of teaching and/or learning support roles, including schools, FE, HE, the voluntary sector, and libraries. It will develop participants' skills in fulfilling these and related roles, develop their academic capacity, and extend their knowledge and understanding of educational processes and structures.

The programme will build on previous experience and learning, and current practice, and students will be encouraged to pursue more specialised interests through options and through assignments for each module.

The two Work-Based Learning modules will provide students with a range of developmental opportunities, e.g.
- building on work from a previous taught module or investigating an issue in their current practice
- working in a specialist or new area
- researching a new project or evaluating an existing one
- carrying out a research project identified by their employer.

The programme will also develop a range of transferable and professional skills. The transferable skills developed are:
- Written and verbal communication
- Interpersonal skills and team working
- Planning and organisation
- Information literacy and research skills
- Critical analysis
- Problem solving
- Reflection and evaluation
- Initiative, adaptability and enterprise
- ICT
- Time and self management.
