Learning and Teaching

​*according to the latest figures from HESA
 
At Leeds Trinity we aim to provide an excellent student experience and a personal approach to helping students achieve their academic and professional potential. We have a strong tradition of supporting student employability, with relevant skills embedded in the curriculum and professional work placements included in all our undergraduate programmes.

The key themes of our strategy are student confidence, professionalism and social responsibility.  To help students achieve their potential we emphasise learning as a collaborative process, with a range of student-led and directed activities.  This approach ensures that students fully engage in shaping their own learning, developing their critical thinking and reflective skills so that they can identify their own strengths and weaknesses, and use the extensive learning support system we offer to shape their own development.  Our full Learning, Teaching and Assessment Strategy can be accessed here.  
#expand#
Undergraduates on the Business and Management degree programme are taught by academic staff with relevant professional credentials and modules are delivered through a combination of lectures, workshops and small group seminars as well as practical "hands-on" sessions.

On this course students undertake two 20-credit Professional Development and Placement modules, which include seven weeks professional work preparation and placement during summer terms at Level 4 and Level 5. Business and Management students have the opportunity to gain work experience in key business sectors and a broad range of management roles in relevant organisations. Before their work placements, students are fully prepared and briefed and afterwards, they are encouraged to reflect on the experience. Our professional work placements are a pivotal part of the degree programme and invariably help students to find their first job after graduation.

At Level 5, all students undertake a 20-credit Research Methods module and a further Level 6 20-credit option module to complete a Research Project or the "Professional Learning through Work" module, which will involve the negotiation of a special project with an employing organisation, which is approved by academic staff at Leeds Trinity. All of these module options are designed to provide students with the opportunity to develop their critical thinking skills, to showcase their understanding and to generate a network of industry contacts, which will help to get them into their chosen career areas.

All students are offered opportunities to develop professional skills and links with employers throughout their degree and the contacts made during their work placements. Students also have the opportunity throughout the course to engage in extra-curricular activities and volunteering, all of which provide the chance for students to build up their skills, CV and portfolio in preparation for competing in the jobs marketplace.

Extensive use is made of Moodle on this degree programme, the Leeds Trinity virtual learning environment (VLE), to support 24/7 learning and to provide access to e-learning resources both on and off-campus.


Assessment
A variety of assessment methods are used, matched to the learning outcomes for the programme, to enable students to demonstrate the full range of knowledge and skills that they have developed.  There is some scope for students to be involved in negotiating and evaluating some assessment.

In addition to each of your module assessments you will take a programme level assessment in each of the first and second year of your programme. This is designed to assess your understanding of everything you have been taught and to help you to understand how different elements of your degree fit together to make a coherent programme. 

You will be given weekly directed activities to complete in each module. These will contribute marks towards the final module assessment and reward engagement with the content of the module. They will also help you to check your understanding of what has been taught. Some of these activities may include further reading or preparation tasks for seminars. Some of the tasks will be completed online and may include quizzes which provide you with instant feedback on your understanding of the module content. In some modules lecturers may place some of the taught content on videos which you may be required to watch prior to attending a class. This will free up time for you to work on meaningful projects in class. 

On this programme there are some assessments which are marked on a pass/fail basis rather than graded. Please note that these assessments are excluded from the calculations made to produce the figures published in the Key Information Set (KIS) for this programme/subject.
Please call our Clearing Hotline on 0113 283 7123 for more information.

Other requirements: For the old GCSE system we require grade C or above and for the new GCSE grading system we will accept grade 4 or higher in both English Language and Maths.​

We welcome students with a wide range of qualifications such as A Levels, BTECs and accredited Access courses.  We treat every application on its own merits; we value highly the experience you illustrate in your personal statement.

We accept a variety of international equivalent qualifications and Leeds Trinity interviews international candidates before a final decision is made. Typically, this is a call at a mutually convenient time. 

If you are unsure about the acceptance of a particular qualification you can check with our Admissions team on 0113 283 7123 or email admissions@leedstrinity.ac.uk​​​
