    Mental Wealth: Academic and Professional Skills for Life 3

    This module will provide students with the opportunity to apply a full range of skills, competencies and experience required for successful development in a range of potential education related career areas.

    They will advance the areas identified in their level 5 studies for their personal professional development (including emotional, social, physical, cultural and cognitive intelligences) through taught and workshop activity.

    Through engagement with the Career Passport students will reflect upon the success of the strategies that they employ to further develop their reflective skills, self awareness, 'life style' 'self care' approaches and where necessary improve these.

    Students will have the opportunity to work collaboratively with fellow students, academic staff and external stakeholders, on an applied project involving the application of key leadership and management skills. In doing so students will apply and develop cognitive, cultural and social intelligences learnt elsewhere in their studies, which will enhance their graduate employability.
