Module Overview

90 credits at level 2, unless the Student Progress and Assessment Board allows a student to progress with 80 credits.

Module Aims

To develop skills in report writing and to gain an appreciation of the organisation in which the student is working

Learning Outcomes

Stdents should be able to:

  • Demonstrate an appreciation of the organisation in which the student is working, both as a business and as a structure designed to meet the needs of the business
  • Show good understanding of the student’s place and role in the organisation
  • Show basic understanding of the technical work assigned to the student
Module Content

A report will be written to describe:

(i) the business, structure and organisation of the Company, including its place in a larger Group, if relevant.

(ii) the place of the student in the organisation and

(iii) an introduction to the work assigned to the student.

The report should be produced and presented in a professional style. Typically it will be up to 3000 words, plus up to 2 pages of diagrams, but this is not prescriptive.

Two copies of the report must be submitted to the Professional Training Secretary by the end of the Semester immediately following the start of the placement. Normally placements start in the Summer and the deadline for the first report is the end of the Autumn Semester of the same calendar year.

The report will be marked by the University, on a scale S, A, B, C, D, E, F.
S Outstanding
A Excellent
B Very Good
C Good (or Average)
D Acceptable but below average
E Inadequate, but compensation possible
F Outright Fail

The marking will be undertaken by the Visiting Tutor for the Company, and one other tutor. Reports submitted late will have the mark reduced by 20% compound for each week or part week of lateness. It is expected that the Visiting Tutor will provide feedback to the student by returning a marked copy of the report.
