Aims/Description: The module will focus directly on developing students' practical employability skills. This module provides students with the opportunity to develop their knowledge and skills as well as to apply these to a placement or work-based project. Students will be supported to select an appropriate placement or work-based project, and produce a learning journal offering a reflective account of the experiences gained on this module. The module will enhance students' employability skills and competencies and their knowledge of workplace settings.
