Workshop And Practicals Online
As any job applicant can tell you, knowledge is good but experience is better. So many jobs these days, even at entry level, want prior experience before the consideration of a candidate. This often causes something of a dilemma for someone post studies – without experience it can be difficult to get a job. But without the job it won’t be possible to gain experience!
The solution is to ensure that your course of education incorporates some aspect of practical, hands-on experience. If you want to be an archaeologist, find some ruins to study. A doctor? Get some health care experience. An environmentalist? Volunteer with a group involved in conservation locally. The important thing is to start gaining practical experience and developing the skills you would need to use your qualification professionally.
To this end, ADL offers a range of Workshop and Practical modules to help complement your course. These will help to provide a guideline in obtaining the experience that is so important to a complete and thorough modern education. With the expert help of ADL’s tutors you will develop a plan to best gain the practice you need and be assessed appropriately.
Lay the foundation of your future by including a workshop or practical module in your study program with ADL.
Research Projects, Industry Meetings and Work Experience
A number of courses require students to complete work experience, industry meetings, workshops or research projects.
The requirements are as follows:
Where a student is required to complete work experience, it must be relevant to the qualification, as well as a valuable learning experience. Work that is menial or not challenging may not be approved. A reference from an employer, client or colleague must be supplied, describing both the nature and duration of the work. If a student has difficulty obtaining work experience, they are advised to contact us for assistance.
Some courses have workshop requirements. Workshop I, II, & III each involve a series of PBL (Problem Based Learning) projects, worked through in liaison with other people. These modules develop the same competencies which would otherwise be achieved through face to face workshops. These modules work for any discipline, teaching you how to effectively deal with practical problems within well defined specifications in any industry.
Research Projects I, II, III and IV are generic 100 hour modules. Each module involves some formal studies to learn about research methods and techniques, followed by conducting real research into a subject relevant to the discipline being studied.
We will accept any of the above three categories as a workplace project.
To meet this requirement, you must attend meetings such as conferences, seminars, trade shows, exhibitions, study tours, committee meetings, or any other industry events which might be considered as contributing toward their awareness and education of the relevant industry. Proof of attendance must be shown. This may be references or letters from the event organisers, by supplying a written report and photographs; or by any other reasonable method.
