Amcanion cyffredinol

This module provides the opportunity for work-based learning, by means of placements with a range of agencies suitable for History, Philosophy or Social Sciences students. The general aim of the module is to help to prepare students for future work-based contexts. Students will identify and arrange their own placements. If the student has any difficulties staff will assist in this process. Students will develop various employability skills in the work placement, most notably:

Communication - verbal and written communication, and listening e.g being clear, concise and focused; being able to tailor your message for the audience and listening to the views of others. Organisation - learning to prioritise, work efficiently and productively, and manage your time in order to meet deadlines. Problem solving - analysing facts and situations and coming up with appropriate solutions.

*If you are interested in this module, please contact the module convenor prior to choosing it as an option.

Such experiential and career-oriented learning is consistent with the university’s commitment to employability enhancement. The module complies with the University Code of Practice on Placement Learning (https://www.bangor.ac.uk/regulations/codes/code07.php.en).

Cynnwys cwrs

The work-based placement agencies include archive record offices in North Wales (for History and Archaeology students), and voluntary sector agencies for Social Sciences students such as Victim Support, Probation, Citizens Advice. Work-based placements involve a commitment of around 70 hours in total, although some students begin and end their placements outside of the duration of the module. A number of employability sessions are incorporated into the curriculum, some of which are provided by the Bangor Employability Award team. Each individual student’s experience of the module will therefore be different, mediated by the nature and location of the placement, and their defined roles within this work context. All students will begin their studies with an individual orientation to their placement by means of one-to-one and small group tutorials. They will embark on a guided reading and study programme, facilitated by the module convenor and teaching team. Their grounding will include reading and discussion aimed at understanding the links between academic study and agency work practice. These will then be linked to the specific undertakings of the placement agency, for example in relation to equality and diversity training, or addressing the needs of vulnerable social groups. The module incorporates structures for reflection on the learning process within a work-based context. Recommended reading will include texts on the value and role of such reflection, and this will be an integral part of the first assignment. Students are also required to report on one or more aspects of their work-based learning within their chosen agency (second assignment). Topics for this aspect of the module will vary according to the individual placement, and so reading and tutorials will be tailored to specific student needs.
