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 work placements included in all our undergraduate programmes. Our full Learning, Teaching and Assessment Strategy can be accessed here.
Most of the modules on this course are delivered through a combination of lectures and small group tutorials and seminars in which you will be encouraged to participate and develop your confidence in debating psychological issues, theory and research.
On this course students undertake two 20-credit Personal Development and Placement modules, which feature six-week work placements in the summer term of Level 4 and the spring term of Level 5 sandwiched between periods of preparation and reflection on their learning. With the support of the College’s Employer Partnership Office the department aims to place all students in child related work placements, for example in schools and FE colleges working with children alongside professional staff. As well as developing your real world experience these modules help students to develop strong CVs and to improve their job research skills.
After supported development of their research skills at Levels 4 and 5, at Level 6 students will conduct a 40-credit Dissertation/Project module to provide an extended opportunity for critical thinking skill development in their chosen area of psychological research.
Opportunities to develop professional skills and links with employers and mentors are not limited to the Personal Development and Placement modules. Practising psychologists and alumni visit the College each year to give lectures and pass on their knowledge of Psychology in the work place. We encourage and support all our students to volunteer and work with children in a variety of work settings, developing personal skills and enhancing their future employability and contacts.
We make extensive use of Moodle, Leeds Trinity’s virtual learning environment (VLE), to support class sessions, and of e-resources to enable 24/7 access to learning materials from off-campus.
A variety of assessment methods is used, matched to the learning outcomes for the course, to enable students to demonstrate the full range of knowledge and skills that they have acquired.
Assessments tailored to this course include individual and group poster presentations; leading a seminar; ethical submissions for research; book reviews; case study evaluations and multiple choice examinations.
On this course there are some assessments which are graded but are excluded from the calculations made to produce the figures published in the Key Information Set (KIS) for this course.
