Most sessions comprise an online lecture and a workshop activity or activities. If you are unable to attend a live session due to factors outside your control, you are expected to inform your tutor and engage in this, where possible, before the next scheduled session. This is aimed at enabling you to develop a clear understanding, considering how the theory and academic knowledge will link into health and social care practice. In weeks 10 – 15 tutorials will take place, which will provide you with the opportunity to discuss your progress on the module and receive feedback on assessments. To complete the module successfully you must allocate a substantial amount of independent study time, which will include undertaking set activities and carrying out assessment activities. Academic skills development will be embedded within the modules, with the inclusion of study skills appropriate to the stage of study. This module is delivered via one three-hour lecture and one three-hour seminar session per week over 15 weeks. To complete the module successfully you must also allocate a substantial amount of independent study time. The timetable will include tutorials (group and individual) in which you have the opportunity to discuss your progress on the module with your Module Tutor. Revision/ practice sessions are scheduled before submission of assessment. Graduate Attributes Graduate attributes are the personal qualities and skills, which the Regent College/University of Bolton community values, and which a student is expected develop during their time at the College/University. Graduate attributes act as a point of reference for a student’s personal development and support the articulation of employability and transferable skills. In total there are 10 graduate attributes. This module seeks to support the development of: EnterpriseConfidence Bolton Values and Employability Skills (T= Taught, D= Developed, A = Assessed) Employability skills: Communication Skills (TDA); Organisation & Planning (TD); Problem Solving (D A); Self Awareness (D); Personal Impact and Confidence (D) Bolton Values: Internationalisation (D); Social, public and ethical responsibility: (TDA) Module Communications The Module Tutor’s contact details are provided at the top of this page. You must check your University of Bolton email address and the Moodle area dedicated to this module regularly as many module communications are channelled through these media. Your Module Tutor will normally aim to respond to your email messages within 2 full working days of receipt; however, responses will be longer in holiday periods. 5. Module Description In this module you will explore how work shapes our lives and brings order and stability to society. You will discover how work defines who we are, impacts on our well-being, influences our relationships with others and shapes the way we spend our leisure time. You will also investigate how work classifies our place within society and links to economic environments and political ideologies. 6.

Assessment Deadlines Assessment itemDue DateWeight1Written Essay- 2000 Words26th May 2021 (Before 23:59)100% 8. Assessment Feedback Feedback on items of assessment can be formal (such as on a signed feedback form) or informal (such as advice from a tutor in a tutorial). Feedback is therefore not just your grade, or the comments written on your feedback form, it is advice you get from your tutor and sometimes your peers about how your work is progressing, how well you have done, what further actions you might take. We recognise the value of prompt feedback on work submitted. Other than in exceptional circumstances (such as might be caused by staff illness), you can expect your assignment and examination work to be marked and feedback provided not more than 15 working daysfrom the deadline date. However, please note that that such feedback will be provisional and unconfirmed until the Assessment Board has met and may therefore be subject to change. Please take time you read or listen to your assessment feedback. This can be very useful in determining your strengths and key areas for development and can therefore help you improve on future grades. 9.

Formative Assessment There are opportunities within this module for guidance on meeting the learning outcomes and learning from the taught components, which will be linked into the assessment strategy. There will be facilitated discussions around the key areas, with individual tutorial sessions to support this. You will have an individual tutorial enabling you to gain advice, support and feedback on your academic abilities and assist the module tutor to plan future sessions and support. You will be required to submit an outline plan of your assignment which will form the basis for your individual tutorial; you will also be given an opportunity to consider your reflection at the end of the module. This should be viewed as a formative assessment, aimed at helping you meet the needs of the summative assessment. 11. Indicative Reading Arnold, J. & Randall, R.

Guidelines for the Preparation and Submission of Written Assessments Written assessments should be word-processed in Arial or Calibri Light font size 12. There should be double-spacing, and each page should be numbered. There should be a title page identifying the programme name, module title, assessment title, your student number, your marking tutor and the date of submission. You should include a word-count at the end of the assessment (excluding references, figures, tables and appendices). Where a word limit is specified, the following penalty systems applies: Up to 10% over the specified word length = no penalty10 – 20% over the specified indicative word length = 5 marks subtracted (but if the assessment would normally gain a pass mark, then the final mark to be no lower than the pass mark for the assessment).More than 20% over the indicative word length = if the assessment would normally gain a pass mark or more, then the final mark will be capped at the pass mark for the assessment. All written work should be referenced using the standard University of Bolton referencing style- see: https://www.bolton.ac.uk/library/Study-Skills/Referencing/Home.aspx Unless otherwise notified by your Module Tutor, electronic copies of assignments should be saved as word documents and uploaded into Turnitin via the Moodle class area. If you experience problems in uploading your work, then you must send an electronic copy of your assessment to your Module Tutor via email BEFORE the due date/time. Please note that when you submit your work to Moodle, it will automatically be checked for matches against other electronic information. The individual percentage text matches may be used as evidence in an academic misconduct investigation (see Section 13). Late work will be subject to the penalties: Up to 7 calendar days late = 10 marks subtracted but if the assignment would normally gain a pass mark, then the final mark to be no lower than the pass mark for the assignment.More than 7 calendar days late = This will be counted as non-submission and no marks will be recorded. Where assessments are graded Pass/Fail only they will not be accepted beyond the deadline date for submission and will be recorded as a Fail. Students may request an extension to the original published deadline date as described below. In the case of exceptional and unforeseen circumstances, an extension of up to 14 days after the assessment deadline may be granted. This must be agreed by your Programme Leader, following a discussion the Module Tutor. You should complete an Extension Request Form available from your Tutor and attach documentary evidence of your circumstances, prior to the published submission deadline. Requests for extensions over 14 calendar days should be requested using the Mitigating Circumstances procedure, with the exception of extensions for individual projects which, at the discretion of the Programme Leader, may be longer than 14 days. Requests for extensions which take a submission date past the end of the module (normally week 20) must be made using the Mitigating Circumstances procedures. Some students with registered disabilities will be eligible for revised submission deadlines. Revised submission deadlines do not require the completion extension request paperwork. Please note that the failure of data storage systems is not considered to be a valid reason for an extension. It is therefore important that you keep multiple copies of your work on different storage devices before submitting it. 13. Academic Misconduct Academic misconduct may be defined as any attempt by a student to gain an unfair advantage in any assessment. This includes plagiarism, collusion, commissioning (contract cheating) amongst other offences. In order to avoid these types of academic misconduct, you should ensure that all your work is your own and that sources are attributed using the correct referencing techniques. You can also check originality through Turnitin. Please note that penalties apply if academic misconduct is proven.
