INDUSTRY PROJECT OR WORK EXPERIENCE

This is the final requirement that you must satisfy before receiving your award.

 

There are two options available to you to satisfy this requirement:

 

Alternative 1.

If you work in the industry that you have been studying; you may submit a reference from your employer, in an effort to satisfy this industry (ie. workplace project) requirement; on the basis of RPL (ie. recognition for prior learning), achieved through your current and past work experience.

The reference must indicate that you have skills and an awareness of your industry, which is sufficient for you to work in a position of responsibility.

Alternative 2.

If you do not work in the relevant industry, you need to undertake a project as follows.

 

 

Procedure for a Workplace Project

This project is a major part of the course involving the number of hours relevant to the course (see above). Although the course does not contain mandatory work requirements, work experience is seen as highly desirable.

 

This project is based on applications in the work place and specifically aims to provide the student with the opportunity to apply and integrate skills and knowledge developed through various areas of formal study.

 

Students will design this project in consultation with a tutor to involve industry based activities in the area of specialized study which they select to follow in the course. The project outcomes may take the form of a written report, folio, visuals or a mixture of forms. Participants with relevant, current or past work experience will be given exemption from this project if they can provide suitable references from employers that show they have already fulfilled the requirements of this project.

 

For courses that involve more than 100 hours, more than one workplace project topic may be selected. For example, 200 hours may be split into two projects each of 100 hours. This will offer the student better scope to fulfill the needs of their course and to meet the number of hours required. Alternatively, the student may wish to do one large project with a duration of 200 hours.

 

Students will be assessed on how well they achieve the goals and outcomes they originally set as part of their negotiations with their tutor. During each 100 hours of the project, the students will present three short progress reports. These progress reports will be taken into account when evaluating the final submission. The tutor must be satisfied that the work submitted is original.

 

If the student wishes to do one large 200 hour report, then only three progressive reports will be needed (however the length of each report will be longer).

WHY DO THIS COURSE?

If you have little industry experience but have completed a qualification it can be difficult to be successful in job interviews. When a potential employer sees that you have done the research, have taken the time to get to know the industry and have completed a formal workplace project, they are more likely to see you as a serious contender i.e. a person with genuine interest in the industry.

  Learning
The Learning ebook is an invaluable resource for students as well as those in learning support roles such as parents and teachers. This ebook helps you understand learning; and based on that understanding, make better informed decisions about what to study and how to study. How do you learn? One theory suggests there are four types of learners, as follows. Which are you? 1. Those who ask why –These people want reasons, they represent around 35% of the population, and will learn best through discussion. 2. Those who ask what –These people just want factual information, and may expect to be “spoon fed”. They account for around 22% of people. The value of their learning experience may be limited by their over emphasis on the facts. Traditional teaching works better here than with the other three types. 3. Those who ask how –Representing around 18% of people, these learners are pragmatic and want to know how things work, then do things with what they learn. 4. Those who ask what if –These people want to explore all the consequences and possibilities. They learn through self-discovery. They represent around 25%
