Work Based Learning is a crucial element in formative and academic training.
This level 9 Module focuses on issues of leadership within a faith community, normally though not exclusively a local church congregation.
It is a block Placement normally five weeks in duration, and is undertaken within the overall guidelines and policies of the SBC relating to WBL.
A Learning Agreement is negotiated between student, Module Co-ordinator and the College approved WBL Supervisor. Aspects of leadership are identified, aims and objectives of the WBL experience formulated, and assessment content agreed and approved at the outset of the Placement.
Students on this WBL have the opportunity to:
- apply previous learning in a vocational context
- reflect theologically on their own and others’ experience
- accompany and interact with a practicing professional in a local faith community environment, and begin to understand the practice, dynamics and key issues of ministry and leadership in a local church or similar context.
