Course summary

This programme was designed to provide academic progression for support workers. It's been mapped to National Occupational Standards, so you will gain the skills and knowledge related to your chosen professional route, as well as generic knowledge within ethics, values base and academic writing.

Face‐to‐face teaching methods include lectures, workshops, tutorials and learning activities to introduce the main concepts and issues that are core to the programme. Tutorials will help you to develop your understanding of key topics and concepts, supported by using reflection on practice, case studies and group work.

The module tutors liaise with Specialist Practitioners who frequently support teaching on specific modules to help you synthesise some of the theoretical and practical elements of the course.

Online work is supported by the Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) Blackboard which will support the face‐to‐face sessions at university, allowing formative feedback to help your professional development. It will act as a means of communicating with other students as well as the course or module tutors, supporting discussions and being an interactive tool to create a stimulating and innovative learning environment.
