Amcanion cyffredinol

This module is optional at Level 6/Year 3 (Semester 1 only), and is open to all single and joint honours students whose degree programmes are wholly within SHiPSS. It is also open to external joint honours students, with the proviso that taking this will still allow them to meet their degree programme requirements. In many cases students will identify and arrange their own placements. In some cases staff will assist in this process, where arrangements already exist with partner agencies. The purpose of the module is to provide the opportunity for work-based learning, by means of placements with a range of agencies. 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). Some placement providers may have their own service level student placement agreements in place which specify appropriate roles and relationships for students, teaching staff and agencies.
The general aim of the module is to provide students with experience of working in agencies, and to help to prepare them for future work-based contexts. The placement providers (named representative/s) will have a clear role in supervising the work of the students and liaising with academic staff in the School with regard to learning outcomes for students, although they will not be directly involved in the assessment process. The specific aims of the module are to provide School-based preparation and support for the placement through individual and small group tutorials; a programme of independent study and guided reading; and intensive placement learning opportunities.

Cynnwys cwrs

The work-based placement agencies include archive record offices in North Wales (for History and Archaeology students), and Victim Support and Citizens Advice Bureau for Social Sciences students. 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. The module is work-based and experiential and so there is relatively little formal teaching contact. However, a number of formal sessions (lecture-style) are incorporated into the curriculum, and some of these 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.
