MSc Advanced Industrial Practice (NDT) is aimed specifically at those in positions of responsibly working in NDT 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 unique approach enables learners to enhance their effectiveness in their current role whilst simultaneously working towards a qualification.
Modules will be delivered in the following sequence: Recognising Industrial Practice – Negotiated Work Based Learning 1 & 2 – Negotiated Research Thesis.
- 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. Learners will be required to produce a critical reflective statement based on their industrial experience to date, addressing the competedencies acquired to achieve BINDT membership status. The University and BINDT will support learners in a variety of ways, including workshops, and tutorials/specific guidance on a range of topics including research skills, critical thinking and reflective writing.
- Negotiated Work Based Learning
Successful completion of the Recognising Industrial Practice module will provide learners with a more forward-looking perspective to allow them 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 the learner, the University and, where appropriate, the employer.
- Industrial Practice Research Project
Leaners will be provided with the necessary tools needed to enable them to conduct their Research Project to the highest possible standards, and to develop as successful, independent researchers.
