Our work-based learning programmes allow you to gain academic credits for practice development work being undertaken in your work environment. Our focus is your personal and professional development.
These work-based learning programmes acknowledge, value and reward the learning which takes place beyond traditional education and facilitate the integration of practice with theory throughout. This focus enables professional and personal development whilst facilitating practice development, improving service delivery and promoting better patient care. This in turn creates a culture of lifelong learning within clinical environments, helping to facilitate professional development of staff.
Delivery of these programmes is a tripartite arrangement between the student, academic supervisor and practice based facilitator. Therefore students must be employed in an area where there is commitment to work-based learning. Learning for each work-based module is based on the development and fulfilment of a learning contract, with learning evidenced through a portfolio based assessment.
