Course summary

Overview

Gain significant recognition in your field whilst continuing to work in your own team, with our course for health and social care staff aiming to become Approved Mental Health Professionals (AMHPs).

Our course combines practice and theory to offer you the most effective learning experience. With the support from your employer, you will be placed in your local AMHP duty team. You will study in university over two semesters, and you will also be able to work two to three days per week in your own team.

You will learn from a variety of professionals, ranging from expert practitioners and service users to law professional trainers and psychiatric staff. You will also be encouraged to visit services, such as Older People wards or Child and Adolescent Mental Health, to gain further experience in clinical practice.

Assessment

We'll assess the skills and knowledge you'll develop in a variety of ways. For example, a written assignment examining themes in mental health legislation or a multiple-choice questionnaire exploring law. As part of your placement we'll provide you with a practice document outlining key competencies, which you'll evidence with a portfolio. Your Practice Educator will also produce a report on how you've applied what you've learnt.

Careers

Upon successfully completing this course, you will have met the ‘approval criteria’ (2013) of the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC). You'll be eligible to apply for AMHP registration through your Local Authority / Mental Health Trust in accordance with the Mental Health (Approved Mental Health Professionals) (Approval) (England) Regulations 2008, enhancing your employment opportunities with these sought-after skills.
