Progression and Awards

Students commence by enrolling on the Higher National Certificate (HNC) programme, and upon successful completion of units worth 120 credits at the end of the first year of study, progress onto the Higher National Diploma (HND) programme. Having achieved 240 Credits, students are awarded the Higher National Diploma (HND). Students who are not able to progress or who wish to complete only one year of studies can be awarded the Higher National Certificate (HNC). Where one or more units are completed but there is no further progression, students may claim the relevant unit certificate(s).

Programme Standard

The programme specification and individual unit specifications for this subject are set and issued by Pearson. Academic Management and Teaching and Assessment align with and follow these standards.

Methods of Teaching

Each unit will be delivered in 3 or 6- hour sessions (depending on the weight of the unit) two days a week (Monday – Tuesday for Weekday Classes / Saturday – Sunday for Weekend Classes) for eleven weeks per 15 credits minimum totalling 60 guided learning hours. Methods of learning include lectures, discussions, use of visual aids, websites and online resources, handouts of readings, exercises and worksheets, workshops, pair and group work, presentation, seminars and one to one sessions with the tutor. Teaching aims to engage students as active learners. In addition, students will need to carry out directed learning, including thorough research and completing their assignments in their own time during outside class hours. During the term, specific amount of time is given in addition to class hours for individual tutorials whilst students work on their assignments. This is designed so students can develop over the programme as independent learners. Study skills training and learning support are provided with a view to increasing both technical or occupational subject skills and personal competencies such as critical thinking and communication skills. For 2021 Autumn Term, we will be delivering the courses in blended-learning format as the method of teaching due to current Covid-19 pandemic conditions.

Methods of Assessment

Students will be handed assignment briefs after the second week of each term. Assessment will be carried out using a wide range of methods, including evaluation of written reports, oral presentation and observations of practical work. Students will be required to demonstrate that they have attained a good understanding of each module by meeting all the learning outcomes, as described in the unit specification in order to gain a pass. Further advanced grades of merit or distinction may also be awarded to students who meet the descriptors for those awards detailed in the assignment briefs. Once a student’s assignment has been submitted the tutor will mark and provide qualitative assessment and feedback in the form of written evaluations against each criteria given for learning outcomes. The student will receive their feedback verbally as well as having reasonable opportunity to resubmit work if necessary. All assessments will be based upon the tutor’s academic judgements, but these will be verified by both internal and external assessors. Students are given the opportunity to appeal through both Docklands Academy and Pearson appeals procedures.
