Course overview

The highlight of this module is the individualised nature of the learning and assessment experience. The module enable practitioners (and where appropriate employers) to select the subject of learning and negotiate the assessment to ensure that the learning experience is directly relevant and of value to their individual specialist area of practice or the practice of others.
