Undergraduate Programmes

The Professional Practice Awards Undergraduate Programme is the ideal option if you are already employed (paid or voluntary), but want to develop further in your field.

The Professional Practice Award (PPA), is a work-based mode of
learning and it gives you the opportunity to extend your
skills and receive accreditation at work.

It places your workplace at the centre of your learning, focusing
on your professional development needs and those of your employer.

Learning is built around your employer’s own provision and designed
for your specific needs, reducing time away from the workplace, with flexible academic tuition both on and off campus.

Enrolment may be conducted at various points in the academic year depending upon demand. You can also choose from a menu of modules to suit your own requirements.
