ABOUT

Introduction

The D/CPS ARM is a practically-based undergraduate level programme by distance learning which allows anyone currently working in archives and records management access to university-based training and education.  It is not a full professional qualification in archives and records management but provides professional development for those for whom the postgraduate programmes are unsuitable.

The programme enables participants to gain or develop knowledge and skills in archives and records management. 

Core modules are designed to cover the broad principles of archives, records management and preservation, and to demonstrate how these may be practically applied in the workplace. 

Specialist modules enable the selection of further study areas of particular relevance to the student.

Delivery

Please note this programme will commence with Online Workshops/Study Skills Days on Thursday 21 – Friday 22 April, with the programme starting officially on Monday 25 April 2022.

The programme is delivered by interactive online learning.

Online materials include access to reference materials through the University Library, and a workpackage delivered through the University’s Virtual Learning Environment (Blackboard), which guides the learning experience required for successful completion of the module. Students are expected to work through the workpackage, completing exercises, research and reading as required. The package includes opportunities for reflection and discussion with fellow students and tutors. Each module is assessed through a written assignment.

Workshops

Workshops introducing the relevant modules are held twice a year at University of Liverpool, and students should aim to attend these unless absolutely impossible. The first workshop takes place at the beginning of the programme, and introduces the content of the first two modules through seminars, group discussion and activities. The second workshop takes place at the mid-point of the programme, and introduces the content of the third and fourth modules, again through a combination of seminars, group discussion and activities.

Study Skills

All new registered students are expected to attend a Study Skills Day, as part of the programme’s introductory workshops. The aim of the day is to:

  • prepare students for studying at a distance;
  • introduce them to the theory and practice of learning;
  • provide an opportunity to develop skills to support studying at a distance, e.g. time management, using the learning materials, finding and using information, preparing for assessment;
  • identify roles and responsibilities of learners, tutors and support staff;
  • enable students to meet others on the programme

Please note, due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, Workshops and Study Skills days in 2021-22 will be delivered online via Microsoft Teams.  

Workplace mentor

A mentor in the workplace will provide ongoing support and assistance with general concerns, including access to learning resources, professional issues and overall progress within the workplace.
