This is a blended learning programme which means that the programme is delivered using a blend of campus-based workshops and web-based materials. This practice-based programme provides you with the knowledge and skills that appeal to employers such as the NHS, local authority adults' and children's services, schools and the voluntary and private social and healthcare sector. Focusing upon sound assessment and understanding of the reasons for challenging behaviour, it teaches constructive ways to respond to support the individual and people around the individual. The programme aims to: deliver content reflecting best clinical practice and national standards to support effective work with people with intellectual and developmental disabilities whose behaviour others find challenging, offer flexible methods of learning that will appeal to students from diverse backgrounds, produce graduates with the knowledge and skills to take up employment in education or adult human services, undertake further studies, and display the transferable skills necessary to demonstrate personal responsibility and decision-making in local and national leadership roles, prepare students to support children or adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their support networks using Positive Behaviour Support i.e. a behavioural approach integrated with an "ordinary life" philosophy, enable students to work in constructive, inclusive, and ethical ways with people who are often marginalised and vulnerable as well as with staff or families often lacking support and provide students with a sound knowledge base and opportunities to develop analytical skills that can be applied in human service provision for children, young people and adults.
