Module Description

Organisations are increasingly recognising the importance of integrating sustainability and ESG practices into their core strategies.

This module offers to students a comprehensive understanding of the systematic approach to implement sustainability practices within an organisation.

Hence, the Sustainable Development Goals and their importance will also be discussed.

This module explores various key components, processes, and strategies crucial for this transformation, with a strong emphasis on practical application within the participant’s own organisational setup.

Entry Requirements

Candidates who apply for this course will possess:

  • A qualification at MQF Level 4 (one ‘A’ Level or equivalent in any subject) and a pass in English Language* and Mathematics at MQF Level 3 (‘O’ Level or equivalent).
  • In the case of students who do not possess all the formal required academic qualifications, then the Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) process could be applied such that if evidence of equivalent learning is found then the applicant could still be accepted in the course. Such RPL process will subject applicants to an interview held with a board of experts within the field, chosen specifically by IDEA Academy, so as to verify their experiences and prior learning.

*Students whose first language is not English and do not possess an ‘O’ level pass in English Language will be required to demonstrate English language capability at IELTS level 6.0 or equivalent.

Target Audience

  • Individuals seeking to advance their academic and professional knowledge in ESG.
  • Individuals wanting to incorporate and implement ESG practices and sustainability within their organisations.
  • Experienced professionals working in industries such as insurance and banking who would like to gain a solid knowledge and skill set relating to ESG regulations, standards, and practices.

Module / Unit Instructions

The proposed structure comprises a blended approach promoting the building of a community of practice via peer-to-peer learning.

The structure uses primarily two dimensions of teaching-learning modes: · Face-to-face sessions: 45h · Online Learning Activities: 30h.

Face to Face Sessions includes lectures, tutorials, discussions, presentations, and workshop activities promoting peer-to-peer learning.

Online Learning Activities incorporate tutorials and asynchronous discussions. These may consist of active interaction, participation, and contributions in fora discussions, sharing resources and self-reflection exercises.

Learners also contribute to the building of the community of practice by providing feedback to their peers as critical friends, enhancing the learner’s critical engagement throughout the study period.

The lecturer provides continual support during both teaching-learning modes by providing information, readings, and tasks relevant to the module in question.

The lecturer provides continuous formative feedback as an on-going guidance during the student’s learning experience in preparation for their summative assessment.

How you’ll be assessed

All formative and summative tasks aim to provide the learner an opportunity to produce evidence of their competences aligned to the learning outcomes of this module and enhance their learning in the process.

Furthermore, the tasks may include different forms of assessment which allow and promote students’ knowledge in the area, their engagement and other transversal skills that are required in the field.

Given the nature of this programme, the aim of the assessments is to be as practical and relevant to industry as possible.

While the format of the formative version might differ, the essence of the assessment could be carried forward.

Assessment

The mode of assessment varies and may include in-class tasks, and home-based written assignments using diverse assessment tools which may include case studies, reports, proposals, essays, quizzes, presentations, infographics, etc., as applicable to this module.

For successful completion of this study module, the student is required to achieve an overall pass mark of 50%.
