Career Development Skills
This course is aimed at those who may be facing redundancy, job loss or may be looking to transfer their skills into another profession
The short course will take place over 4 weeks, with each week addressing a different aspect of career development, as below.
Material will be available online via Moodle, and students will be able to access the content which will include recorded lectures, podcasts and articles, and study in their own time, although there is some expectation that they aim to keep up to date on a weekly basis. (ie that tasks for week 1 are completed sometime within week 1)
This short course requires that the student can allocate 3 hours per week to their study, but there is no requirement to be online at a specific time.
There will be clear guidance given to students regarding student expectation and assessments. Students will not be expected to use Harvard referencing, but will need to list their sources of information. The assessments will be 4 x 250 word contributions to a discussion forum, and will involve either opinion based, research based or experience based tasks related to the weekly content. It is advised that students complete one forum each week, and it should not extend their study time per week by more than 30 minutes.
This course begins on 5th June 2023.
