This course is designed for new and existing professionals in a range of public, private and voluntary sector environments. The course is flexible around other commitments potential students may have, as it is delivered on one day per week for part-time students and two days per week for full time learners. This allows opportunities for either full-time or part-time study, either for those returning to education or those in employment who wish to enhance their qualifications and employment status or opportunities.

Feedback

Where relevant, assessments will be marked and returned to students with constructive and developmental feedback. Effective feedback combines information which enables students to understand the strengths and limitations of their past performance, and information which enables them to recognise how future performance can be improved. Students will be provided with feedback in a timely manner and this feedback will justify how the grade has been awarded. Students will have the opportunity to reflect on the feedback given and identify their strengths, things they found challenging and areas for development that they will feed forward to their next assessment. Feedback will include linking evidence to assessment criteria to demonstrate how the student will have met the learning outcomes.
