University of Aberdeen
Community Learning and Development
The programme aims to provide a response to the continuing professional development needs of fully qualified professionals who wish to extend their roles, responsibilities and contribution. This capacity to make an extended contribution is especially important for mid-career professionals who face the need to re-construct current professional practice and knowledge to meet the challenge of ever-more rapid and significant change, and who work in situations where management is devolved or distributed and many are required to lead project-driven change aimed at the enhancement of practice.
Applicants will be graduates or able to provide evidence that they can work at postgraduate level; must have previous relevant experience and be able to undertake studies and related developments in their workplace setting or other appropriate agency. Students whose 1st language is not English require IELTS 6.5 with a minimum 6.0 in reading and writing (or equivalent).
Course 1: Enquiring professionalism. Course 2: Planning in partnership with communities. Course 3: Ethical relationships in practice. Course 4: Changing practices in community work. Course 5: Enquiring into practice in community settings.
Formative assessment is a feature of all courses. Formative and summative assessments are designed to arise naturally from the work. Assignments focus directly on workplace applications.
