This mandatory module incorporates a choice of 3 modes of undertaking work experience:

  • Work Placement
  • Work Practice
  • Work Based Learning

 

Participation in any one mode will satisfy the requirement for work experience. All modes are designed to allow learners to learn from ongoing, substantial and active involvement in a specific work environment.

Work Placement Mode

Learners fulfil the requirements of the mode by working in an established organisation/enterprise that has been deemed suitable to provide quality work experience by Daralinn. The learner participates in work related to the vocational award.

Work Practice Mode

Learners fulfil the requirements of this mode through becoming involved in a realistic work programme set up by Daralinn which gives ‘hands-on’ experience of the vocational area. The work practice is carefully monitored, planned and structured by Daralinn.

Work Based Learning

This mode is to enable learners to gain FETAC Level 5 accreditation for current or prior experience of work in a vocational area directly related to the certificate being sought. The experience of work in either case must be substantial, verifiable and relevant.

 

Specific Requirements

Learners undertaking work experience must work the equivalent of 10 – 15 working days. A minimum of 10 days must be completed in the placement or practice situation. The remaining 5 days must be made up of current relevant work (paid or unpaid).
