Professional Practice and Skills Portfolio (15 Credit PDU)

About this course

This core unit provides the opportunity to create an evidence-based portfolio that illustrates how a student's existing professional skills and their prior experiential learning shape practice and allow them to operate effectively in their present role.

Moreover, students will use evidence of their current professional skills alongside activities of critical self-evaluation in order to write a learning contract that will set out their short- and mid-term learning objectives alongside a plan of development activities and evaluation criteria.

As part of this process, students will work with an industry mentor to critically evaluate and assess the relevance of their evidence to the maritime industry in order to show their experience and skills can be developed to improve specific aspects of their professional practice in future.
