Course Summary

Overview

MSc Advanced Industrial Practice (Wastes Management) is aimed specifically at those in positions of responsibly working in Wastes Management who want to develop their expertise within their current profession. The flexible, innovative framework provides learners not only with the opportunity to gain recognition for professional experience and practice, but also to negotiate learning within the workplace to achieve a postgraduate qualification (PGCert, PGDip, and MSc). This innovative approach enables learners to enhance their effectiveness in their current role whilst simultaneously working towards a qualification.

Recognising Industrial Practice

An innovative application of APEL in work-based learning contexts, the Recognising Industrial Practice module, provides a useful, critical and reflective mechanism that can be used by individuals and organisations as part of a customised and flexible programme of study.

The University and CIWM will support you in a variety of ways, including workshops, and tutorials/specific guidance on a range of topics such as critical thinking and reflective writing.

Negotiated Work Based Learning

Successful completion of the Recognising Industrial Practice module will provide you with a more forward-looking perspective to allow you to both identify and negotiate new projects/work-related activities. The negotiated learning will be defined in the context of a Learning Contract, negotiated between yourself, the University and, where appropriate, your employer.
