Abstract

This case study focuses on the two-year BA in Primary Education and details a collaborative pilot project offered by the Faculty of Health and information and Library Services. The course uses an innovative framework that embeds academic skills in the taught programme to help students better manage the challenges that the accelerated degree brings. Academic and information literacy skills are integrated in the subject curriculum to support students with their studies but also to enhance their abilities and build lasting confidence through employability and citizenship skills.

This case study outlines four strategies to be considered for employment on other programmes.
