This award enables healthcare professionals to create an individualised programme of study from the interdisciplinary Framework within the Faculty of Health Studies that will meet either their needs and /or their employers’ needs for a changing diverse workforce within a modern organisation.
It is designed for people who do not wish to undertake a defined programme or award, but who might like to study one module at a time (maximum of 5 years part time) building academic credit at their own pace, building up enough credit for one of the generic awards in Health, Wellbeing and Social Care at Post Graduate Certificate, Post Graduate Diploma or MSc level.
The Programme Leader or an academic adviser from the Faculty will discuss with the student and support their choices of modules before they start studying and during the programme of study.
The programme is intended to:
Provide a flexible educational framework that is vocationally relevant, within which the curriculum, where required, meets the regulatory needs of professional bodies and the professional development needs of the student, as well as the organisational needs of employers
Develop the students’ cognitive and practical skills to undertake data synthesis and complex problem solving
Develop critically reflective, competent practitioners, managers and leaders who will inform and shape or change inclusive, fair and ethically sensitive service provision
Students engage with learning through a range of teaching methods depending on the modules studied, however, student centred approaches to learning are a feature of the modules across the Faculty of Health thereby enabling all students to access the curriculum and meet the diversity agenda. Module delivery methods may include block or study day attendance, distance learning, blended learning or residential attendance and during study planning students will be advised of the delivery methods utilised for each module.
