Work-Based and Integrative Studies
Work based and integrative studies (WBIS) is a framework for the accreditation of work-based and work related learning which offers flexible and adaptable study for those seeking professional development opportunities; typically, it allows participants to negotiate their own pathway of learning related to their area(s) of working practice, and to choose a relevant award title.
Minimum of lower 2nd Class Honours degree, or equivalent; applicants who do not have appropriate academic qualifications may be admitted by virtue of prior work experience or by demonstrating relevant knowledge and skills in a specific field.
Modules include: Conflict transformation; effective workplace teams; transition and change management; communication skills; emotional intelligence; analysis and use of evidence; project and programme management; business strategy and planning; delivering results; the organisational environment; research methods for work-based learning.
Assessment is negotiated but can involve a portfolio of work, an assignment, a presentation, a dialogue assessment, a research project or a combination; there are no written examinations.
