Why choose this qualification?
The Gateway Qualifications Level 4 Award in Action Research qualification is designed to support the development of action research skills which can then be applied to any field of enquiry. It has been developed with the support of organisations involved in providing professional development services to teachers and teaching assistants.
The objective of the qualification is to develop in learners an understanding of action research and a research skill-set, which they can apply in their job role as a means of improving their own performance and that of others.
This qualification supports progression to further research-related qualifications and may act as a stepping stone towards higher education for some learners. It is also intended to enhance the capabilities of the learner within their existing job role or to enable them to progress within employment.
There are no restrictions to entry. However, in order to meet the assessment requirements for the qualification, learners must have access to an appropriate setting in which to conduct action research.
