Learning at Work
Partnership Programme - How will I study?
The Partnership Programme is unique in that it allows you to set your own objectives, course content and timetable. We set the framework for your degree and assess your work, but you choose what to learn, how you will learn and what evidence you will deliver for assessment. The learning management process ensures that the standard achieved is appropriate to receive your award.
All Partnership Programme degrees must include work-based learning projects, and most students choose to do the majority of their studies by this means. University taught units and other training programmes can provide additional learning.
The time you take to complete your studies is up to you and is not tied to the academic calendar. It depends on the point at which you enter the course and your personal circumstances at work and at home.
You will have support from:
- A workplace mentor chosen by you – someone at work who can offer advice, guidance and moral support.
- A personal university tutor in your area of study.
- A learning management tutor – one of the Partnership Programme academic staff.
- Lecturing staff in your taught units.
- Written feedback on all items submitted for approval or assessment.
- An introductory Learning Management course to help you develop your learning contract, devise projects, conduct research and write reports. The course is offered as a one day short course, by distance learning and on-line.
