Historically: <ul><li>4 pathways: </li></ul><ul><li>Validation </li></ul><ul><li>Short </li></ul><ul><li>Long </li></ul><ul><li>Full Training </li></ul><ul><li>(All to do with the student starting point) </li></ul><ul><li>Used to have 9 modules </li></ul><ul><li>Tailored modules to each person - some taking 9, other as little as 2. </li></ul><ul><li>About 200 students per year - 3 months to 15 months. </li></ul><ul><li>Qualification: EYPS - but long pathway is a 'top up' programme to EYPS in Professional Development. </li></ul>
  • 3. Historic Blackboard Provision <ul><li>Blackboard sections for: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Validation </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Short </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Long </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Full Training </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Each section containing module information and assessment information </li></ul><ul><li>Leading to </li></ul><ul><li>repetition … errors … confusion </li></ul>

  • 6. Reason for sticking it all together: <ul><li>Reduce duplication </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Historic – used to be four area for the whole programme – now one. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Single area for modules, materials etc. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Single assessment area (materials) </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Grouping used to keep pathways blinkered </li></ul><ul><li>Issues / concerns </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Not used for discussion / collaboration / assessment </li></ul></ul>
  • 7. Could the Programme / Module model work? <ul><li>Most complex is the BA Hons route </li></ul><ul><ul><li>6 modules per route </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>(but note, 6 for practice and 6 for leadership) </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>So … yes … </li></ul>
