14 29 Articulation of Graduate Prospects UG Graduates will be capable professionals, employable in the tax profession, both within HMRC and externally. PG Graduates of the Mc in Taxation and Fiscal Policy will have a high level knowledge of tax and fiscal policy, the economy and policy analysis, enabling career development and / or employment in a wide variety of policy making bodies, policy advice or analysis institutes and any organisation with a direct interest in the forecasting or analysis of government policy. 30 Curriculum Design UG HMRC deliver all of the programme to their staff for levels 5 and 6 of the MMU programmes. The whole taught programme, falls into two levels foundation and higher. Each level is subdivided into units of varying credit sizes. The MMU awards at Foundation degree level and Honours degree level will be accrediting units at levels five and six. The MMU awards will comply with the QAA Benchmarks as detailed in section 18 above. The HMRC staff who are undertaking the MMU award fall into three categories as follows: 1) Graduates who join the organisation to complete the Tax Professional Development Programme (TPDP) which is a structured training course over a four year period. The students work through all of the taught units and develop a work-based portfolio to evidence their practical skills and competence level. 2) Graduates or non graduates, within HMRC, with acceptable entry qualifications may apply for the TPDP scheme, and may join at the beginning of the four year programme above, or if they have sufficient prior tax professional training units, may be offered missing units (referred to as bridging units) which will ensure they are trained to the equivalent of completing year two of the TPDP programme. This is sometimes referred to within HMRC as the accelerated programme. 3) HMRC staff who do not join the TPDP programme at all, but nevertheless will be required to take additional units of study on an ad hoc basis as a result of business or continued personal development. Units studied on the first 2 years of the HMRC TPDP programme have been accredited by AAT (Association of Accounting Technicians) and mainly fall into levels 3 & 4. MMU are accrediting units covered by the TPDP programme in years 3 and 4 of the programme, for level 5 and level 6 awards. All students entering the level 5 study will have completed the equivalent of years 1 & 2 of the TPDP scheme and have a minimum of 2 years work experience with HMRC. Due to the varying credit sizes of the units studied within this programme, students will CAQE Page 13 of 74 Programme pecification

15 accumulate credits that will contribute to an MMU award at specific points. For an MMU award each unit has been reviewed and a credit and level awarded to it based on unit learning outcomes reflecting the technical difficulty of the subject matter and the student learning hours. In addition to the TPDP mapped units the programme will include work based learning units that allows the student to receive credit for the practical activities undertaken which are linked directly to application of learning from the specialist units as well as for recognition of tasks carried out as part of their job role. tudents are supported throughout their learning experience by their Business Learning Manager (BLM), are able to pose questions to their tutors during the course and are able to develop relationships with peers through an online messaging and conferencing service. PG The Mc in Taxation and Fiscal Policy has been developed by an extensive consulting process with HMRC to provide direct employer input into the design process. The units were further reviewed by a series of stakeholder feedback meetings within HMRC to provide feedback from all relevant aspects of this national organisation. 1. Behavioural Economics, Compliance & Policy Unit reviewed by HMRC and informed by an existing successful unit (Behavioural Finance). 2. Fiscal Policy, Taxation & The Economy - reviewed by HMRC and informed by an existing successful unit (Economics of The Financial ystem). 3. ocial & Economic Issues in Taxation Reviewed by HMRC. 4. Academic & Professional Development - reviewed by HMRC and an existing successful unit. 5. Dissertation - reviewed by HMRC (specific research topics for HMRC staff) and an existing successful unit The units on this Mc will combine to meet all Programme Learning Outcomes and provide the knowledge and skills expected from a graduate of a Mc in Taxation & Fiscal Policy. Both MMU and HMRC perceive that this knowledge and understanding will allow students to achieve meaningful career progression and meet the programme and graduate learning outcomes. 31 Learning and Teaching UG On a prescribed programme of studies there is a teaching cycle. which varies per super-unit. This is 8-15 weeks learning; 3 week revision and exam; 4 week review period for re-assessment. A sample schedule for the course is attached in Appendix 6. tudents will mainly work on distance learning materials. tudents are provided with study packs for all units. Each unit has a defined element of class contact or computer-based learning materials and a defined element of self-study using the learning materials provided. tudents will also be provided with revision guides. These are supplemented with face to face workshops provided to help students prepare for examination. CAQE Page 14 of 74 Programme pecification

16 Formative assessment is provided through on-line practice tests and mock exam questions. tudents studying the individual CPD units will self-study using the distance learning materials and on-line formative feedback. They can then attend a workshop for the unit if they wish. tudents on this route decide when they are ready to take an examination. Induction The MMU awards with HMRC are part of a larger series of development. When students start on the 4 year HMRC prescribed programme that culminates in an MMU award they have a two day induction programme. The MMU Link Tutor will be involved in this induction and give an overview of the MMU awards. When students enrol on the MMU award stage of their programme with HMRC they will use some e-learning material, developed with HMRC, to find the information they about their MMU award and the University regulations. CPD Route When students taking individual CPD units enrol on the MMU award they will use e-learning material, developed with HMRC, to find the information they about their MMU award and the University regulations. PG Mc Taxation & Fiscal Policy Year Modules Total Time in MMU tudent tudy Time Year 1 APD 12 days 900 hours (minimum) EIT BF & TP Year 2 EF&T Dissertation 8 days 900 hours (minimum) A diagrammatic, intuitive and case study approach will be taken rather than a complex mathematical and econometric approach, this recognises the of employees to present data to a wide audience. Through an intensive taught programme and an extended individual investigation the student will develop through the course in line with their career aims and their current positions within HMRC or their respective organisations. Generally a student will have 4 days face to face teaching (lectures / workshops / group work / computer labs) within MMU supplemented with material provided online through a VLE. The face to face sessions will be comprised of a mixture of lecture and workshop sessions, incorporating group work where appropriate. CAQE Page 15 of 74 Programme pecification

17 32 Assessment UG Formative assessment is varied and engaging and can take the form of classroom feedback on taught courses, on-line practice tests and practice exams. For the work based learning units formative assessment will be feedback from managers who have a supervisory role for the student. For the taught units summative assessment will be testing the learning outcomes through a written examination and the work based learning assessment will be in the form of a reflection of the practical activities undertaken evidenced in a portfolio. Feedback on the examination will come from tutors and will be one-to-one verbal or written. tudents may take individual units from the programme and will be awarded certificates of credit for the units taken. Foundation Degree and Honours Degree The minimum pass mark on the level 5 and level 6 units of the programme will be 60% on all assessments. This is because the MMU grade descriptors in the range describe a level of competence which is not adequate for the job role in which these students are employed. ee Appendix 4 for Business chool Undergraduate Grade Descriptors All examination assessments undertaken in the training programme have a pass mark of 70% which is an HMRC requirement. MMU recognise the reasons for this pass mark, and have agreed with HMRC a conversion of the HMRC pass range to an MMU pass range of The conversion is based on the range of pass marks achieved over the last two years, compared with an MMU profile of % achievement at different levels. MMU HMRC (2.1) and over (1 st ) 77 and over ee Appendix 5 for pass mark conversion matrix. The Work-based Learning and Tax Professional Portfolio units will be marked on a matrix based on the MMU grading criteria for undergraduate programmes. s tudents taking the foundation degree and honours degree will normally sit examinations which vary in length depending on the size of the unit. ome large units may have two exam papers.. tudents taking individual units as CPD will sit a shorter separate paper for each unit. The length of the examination is related to the credit total of the units being assessed.
