More information about the Professional Practice Module:

Preparing you for the next stage in your career is important. This module aims to prepare you for the next step in your chosen pathway and also assist you in engaging with the professional world of work or further education through a series of talks and practical workshops given by experts in the field. Careers advice and information will be provided on presentations and interviews as well as information concerning grants, commissions and funding for projects, business funding and postgraduate study.

This module provides you with the opportunity to reflect on your personal achievements, and to begin to relate your interests and expertise to the next stage of your career, whether it is employment, self-employment or further academic studies. You will carry out directed research into your future career path using tools such as Mind-Maps, reflection and workshops. Transferable skills will be identified and evaluated alongside subject specific skills. Students will all create a learning journal and learning report of their research and an online digital portfolio of their practice, to include a CV, statement and selection of work to present their work to prospective employers, clients, collaborators and networks. More information on these assignments is here.
