The MA Advanced Professional Practice is a highly accessible, flexible programme of study suitable for professional staff from a variety of backgrounds including Health, Education, Social Care, Social Work, Early Years, Criminal Justice and professions allied to Health (such as Occupational Therapists). The programme offers stand-alone modules used for CPD as well as the opportunity to gain a full MA.

The MA Advanced Professional Practice enables you to work towards Master’s level qualifications by combining campus –based modules with short courses, work- based learning and other Continuing Professional Development (CPD) activities.

The MA consists of three phases:

Phase 1: Postgraduate Certificate in Professional Practice.
Phase 2: Postgraduate Diploma in Advanced Professional Practice.
Phase 3: MA in Advanced Professional Practice.
The first phase of the MA leads to a Postgraduate Certificate which is normally completed in one year, January to December Upon completion you have the choice of proceeding to the Postgraduate Diploma phase or taking a break from study. The full MA will take between three to seven years to complete, depending in how you choose to organise your studies. Alternatively, the programme structure enables you to exit after each phase with a professional award, should you wish.

Indicative modules
The Programme Co-ordinator will work with you to design your individual pathway through this programme. At the Postgraduate Certificate phase many of the modules provide vehicles for you to import and evidence CPD activity that you may have undertaken in the workplace , or learning from short courses. Once you have applied to the programme you will be allocated a Professional Mentor who will advise and support you in combining taught study with work-based learning.

Phase 1: Postgraduate Certificate in Professional Practice.
Phase 2: Postgraduate Diploma in Advanced Professional Practice.
Phase 3: MA in Advanced Professional Practice.

This innovative modular Masters programme offers practitioners the opportunity to gain Higher Education credit alongside their work in a range of core and elective modules. Modules can be taken at the University of Chichester and ‘imported’ from other accredited ‘M’ level courses. The MA Advanced Professional Practice is a unique and responsive programme, which allows practitioners to combine taught modules with verification, and accreditation of learning from work based activities and in-house training.

The MA Advanced Professional Practice can be aligned with the outcomes of learning and career development outlined in the Professional Capabilities Framework (PCF)

The following distinctive features ensure that the programme is responsive to practitioner and employer need:

Verification of learning from work-based activities and in-house training

A key feature of the MA Advanced Professional Practice is the opportunity to import work- based projects and in-house training, allowing a greater degree of flexibility and fit with other CPD activity. This is achieved through the use of ‘Shell Modules’, which require students to evidence their attendance of training opportunities, or the time devoted to work-based projects. This evidence constitutes the module ‘content’. The module assignments then assess the outcomes of the CPD activity: how the activity has enhanced the effectiveness of the practitioner or contributed to service development.
A flexible response to accreditation of learning

University of Chichester regulations differ from those of many universities in allowing students to import up to 50% of academic credit from modules and courses completed at other Higher Education Institutions. The advantage of this facility is that students could, for example, complete a module from University A, a course at University B and combine these with further modules, or other forms of CPD, to build credit towards the MA. This approach to CPD accreditation affords practitioners and employers an unprecedented level of choice and flexibility.
Aligning in-house CPD programmes with an M level framework

The flexibilities afforded by the MA Advanced Professional Practice enable employers to deliver CPD Programmes, which also allow staff to gain ‘M’ level credits. This can be achieved through the University approval of CPD programmes delivered by employers, or by use of the shell modules to import in-house learning into the MA, Postgraduate Diploma, or Post Graduate Certificates.
Aligning University modules with in-house CPD strategies

The MA incorporates a number of modules which can be commissioned by employers and the content adapted to specific CPD requirements. This enables employers to address niche CPD interests or to incorporate agency-specific content in the module delivery. A recent example was the commissioning by a local authority of an off-the-shelf module, the content of which was then focused on the specific needs of the organisation’s Occupational Therapists.
Bespoke pathways

It is a challenge to find CPD programmes which accurately reflect the often individualised requirements of individuals or employers. The flexibilities afforded by the MA Advanced Professional Practice enable participants to pursue a truly bespoke and individualised pathway. This is particularly attractive to individuals who have complex or composite roles (for example manager and practitioner) which may not be fully addressed in the more restricted content of traditional programmes.
Blended learning

Our blended learning approach has developed with emerging technologies for enhanced communication. Our experience and research in learning and teaching have highlighted the need for a personalised approach for some learners. We understand the high levels of motivation required for independent study and many of our learners need the support of tutors and fellow students to retain their engagement with study. We offer named tutors who support students and can, where necessary, signpost them to other services, as well as a combination of traditional and emerging methods of study to enhance students’ engagement and experience.

In 2014 about a third of all the goods and services produced were traded internationally (WTO International Trade Statistics 2015). International trade is a powerful driver for growth and rising living standards, especially in the developing world, whilst representing a significant part of GDP in most developed countries.

On this programme you will learn how international trade and logistics affect our lives and world prosperity.

International trade is the exchange of capital, goods and services across international borders. Countries specialise in exporting those products and services which they can produce most efficiently and import those where they are less efficient.

Logistics is about managing the activities along a supply chain, from procuring materials to delivering finished goods that satisfy customer orders. Effective logistics and supply chain management are therefore the key enablers of international trade.

The MSc International Trade & Logistics (accredited by the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport) links these two elements of business and provides an introduction to the management and operational knowledge necessary to trade successfully in international markets. The programme is designed for wide range of participants looking to take on senior roles in organisations which trade internationally.
