Module Title:Work Placement
Language of Instruction:English
Credits: 20
NFQ Level:7
Module Delivered In 2 programme(s)
Teaching & Learning Strategies: The supervisor and student will be furnished with a continuous assesment record book (CARB) placement booklet. This includes the student code of conduct; supervisor repsonsibilities while on placement; a list of student competencies, the assessment criteria and a feedback evaluation process will be implemented at mid way and at the final term for each work placement site. The student may be visited on site by the work placement coordinator from IT Carlow. The student will set objectives, discuss progress and identify potential problems with their supervisor. At the end of each work placement site, all students will fill out an Appraisal report for each work placement site. The student will be required to develop a work placement plan outlining objectives to be achieved with the supervisor.
Module Aim: To enable the student to apply and consolidate their competent skills and techniques acquired during the academic programme in a real work applied learning setting in a supervised relevant work environment.•To develop the students ability to effectively communicate content related to the field of sport and exercise science.
