Trefnydd: Dr David Edward Perkins
This module aims to provide learners with the opportunity to analyse the value of their learning within vocational and work-specific contexts. In so doing, it will require learners to reflect upon their learning experience in terms of how it has enhanced their academic and vocational knowledge and skills, self-esteem and current and future employability. This will enable learners to link their increased effectiveness in a range of work-based tasks and contexts to their extended and enhanced knowledge and skills sets.
In addition, the module will focus upon the creation of a comprehensive and vocationally-relevant personal and professional development plan, arising from forward reflection. The plan will identify a range of future academic and vocational developmental needs, specific to and within a range of work-based and employability contexts, which result in the identification of attainable goals. The plan will also identify and establish how progress towards stated goals may be measured.
Indicative content includes:
● How learning enhances performance in a range of vocational and work-specific contexts.
● The value of reflection as a tool for improving self-awareness and critical thinking skills.
● Personal and professional development planning.
● Reflecting forward.
● The measurement of progress towards goals.
Equivalent to 40%. Uses key areas of theory or knowledge to meet the Learning Outcomes of the module. Is able to formulate an appropriate solution to accurately solve tasks and questions. Can identify individual aspects, but lacks an awareness of links between them and the wider contexts. Outputs can be understood, but lack structure and/or coherence.
Equivalent to the range 60%-69%. Is able to analyse a task or problem to decide which aspects of theory and knowledge to apply. Solutions are of a workable quality, demonstrating understanding of underlying principles. Major themes can be linked appropriately but may not be able to extend this to individual aspects. Outputs are readily understood, with an appropriate structure but may lack sophistication.
Equivalent to the range 70%+. Assemble critically evaluated, relevent areas of knowledge and theory to constuct professional-level solutions to tasks and questions presented. Is able to cross-link themes and aspects to draw considered conclusions. Presents outputs in a cohesive, accurate, and efficient manner.
Recognise, through reflection, the value of your learning experience in terms of your increased effectiveness in a range of work-based tasks and employability contexts.
Create a vocationally-relevant personal and professional development plan that sets attainable work-based and employability goals and establishes how they may be measured.
