Learning and assessment
The modules and programmes nested within the Framework offer students a wide range of delivery options E.g. simulated learning, group work, problem based learning, the capacity to acknowledge and build upon the previous knowledge and skills acquired through previous learning experiences including those in the work place.
This enables students to develop a full range of skills and competences appropriate to their work or professional field enabling them to function more effectively in the workplace.
Learning will be assessed against the Programme Aims and Learning Outcomes by the use of a variety of assessment techniques, offering opportunities for students to select modules which not only meet their identified learning needs but also their learning style and choice of assessment. Assessment options may include one or more of the following:
- Written essay

- Completion of a set number of competencies
- Practical examination (OSC(E/P)
- Computer based Multiple Choice Question Examination
- Computer based open book exam
