The BA (Honours) Professional Practice top-up award is designed for those wanting to influence and improve their professional practice in the workplace through the pursuit of the concept of the professional as a learner, achieved through reflective practice. Central to this is being not only responsive to change but being proactive in facilitating the change process. In particular, the programme is designed to enhance professional practice through:

  • The adoption of a reflective practice approach to personal and professional development;
  • The ability to relate theory to practice;
  • The critical exploration of values-based knowledge as a means to greater understanding of work related issues;
  • The encouragement of effective decision-making based on a critical review of evidence;
  • An ability to structure and engage with professional research;
  • The ability to critically evaluate professional issues through a research-informed approach;
  • The ability to facilitate change in a professional setting;
  • The adoption of a personal philosophy to underpin professional practice.

The aim is achieved by providing a theoretical underpinning and appropriate tools of analysis to enable students to critically examine their work, or the work of others, in the professional setting. The work is based on the premise that practical decisions must be informed by the best theoretical insight available and their outcomes must be objectively evaluated against recognised criteria.
