Learning outcomes are clear statements of what a learner is expected to know, understand and/or be able to demonstrate at the end of a period of learning. Module level learning outcomes will be specific to the learning that takes place in a module. Programme level learning outcomes are high level learning outcomes, expressing the knowledge, skills or attributes a graduate of an entire course should be capable of demonstrating.

All certified programme and modules are expected to define a number of learning outcomes.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Are learner centred;
  • Specify what the learner should be able to do on completion of the course;
  • Identify what level of performance is expected from the learner;
  • Specify the cognitive, behavioural and affective scope of learning;
  • Guide the content of the training/teaching materials;
  • Determine delivery methods;
  • Identify learning environment conditions;
  • Provide directions for evaluation and assessment.
