Course content

This is a flexible programme designed to support social care staff in meeting their own professional development needs by choosing an individual learning pathway. Students can attend single modules on the programme.

You can choose from a range of modules to meet your needs for learning and development. There are three compulsory modules in the programme and all other modules are optional. Routes are not prescriptive as the flexibility of the programme allows you to move from one area of specialism to another to support your personal and professional development.

The approach to learning is participative with your module tutor providing structure and conceptual practice models with frameworks to guide learning. You are provided with the opportunity to work in project groups to research areas that are relevant to your own practice, working with ‘live’ case material.
