Teaching and Learning
The teaching and learning approaches across this programme build on your basic Level 3 skills and knowledge, developing content to expand this in conjunction with developing your professional and employability skills. A variety of methods will be used to deliver course content. These may include lectures, seminars, tutorials, practical sessions and workshops with industry experts and guest lectures. The common theme will be the emphasis on professional practice and application of taught theory to the workplace. Initially, you will undertake some independent study guided by your tutor. As you progress through the course you will be expected to develop your own approach to research and apply this to areas of specific interest to you.
You will be assessed on your skills, knowledge and ability to apply theory to practice in work based contexts. Assessments will include presentations, case studies, group work, essays and reports and also examinations.
We recognise that examinations can sometimes be a barrier to student success. However, the structured approach in this course will allow you to build confidence in your examination techniques. This will equip you with the skills to progress to professional body examinations e.g. CCAB accountancy bodies.
