Essential Skills for Practitioners - Digital Literacy
This is a Practitioner qualification. You will be registered as a learner with Agored Cymru and will need to produce evidence against set criteria for assessment. Professional observation forms part of the assessment for this programme.
What you will learn and how you achive the qualification
What you will learn
You will cover the following 6 units - adults and young people as Digital Literacy learners; Delivering Digital Literacy; Using learning Technologies, Tools & Techniques; Managing the Digital Literacy learning environment; Assessment of Digital Literacy skills and Refelctive Practice in Digital Literacy delivery.
How you will learn & evidence
The course is designed to immerse you into the world of Digital Literacy. Materials include videos and presentations and you will be set various activites to evidence the course criteria. You will use a range of different ways to present your evidence - sometimes this will be directed and sometimes you can chose which tool or technique you prefer to showcase your learning!
As this is a Practitioners qualification, your professional practice will need to be observed. Signing up to this programme assumes that you have access to people you can be observed delivering Digital Literacy to - they can be students, colleagues or even clients - the important thing is they exist and are willing to be part of the observation audience!
Achieving your Qualification
Once you have completed all of the activities, produced your evidence and had it assessed, your work will be verified ready for certification with Agored Cymru - you will receive a Digital Certificate in recognition. This course is a regulated qualificaiton at Level 3 within the UK Qualifications & Certifications Framework - taking part in the learning but not evidencing and achieving 100% of the set Assessment Criteria does not give an automatic right to be awarded the qualification. Satisfactory participation can lead to award of a non-accredited Open Badge in recognition of the effort applied should you decide not to work toward achieving the full qualification.
