Course summary

Your programme “will include content which is relevant to the world of work, emphasising problem-solving and the interaction of theory and practice. It will challenge you intellectually, promoting independence and confidence” (University of Cumbria, Learning, Teaching and Assessment Strategy [LTA] 2017-22). Equally focussing upon one of the key themes from the same strategy we aim to “provide an environment for the development of professionally relevant, research informed and innovative programmes”. This theme not only provides a foundation for your chosen area of study, but it also recognises the importance of using a clear educational curriculum model and framework to structure your programme, with you as the learner being central to this process. Focussing on the knowledge and skills required for your employment, the curriculum accommodates the latest contemporary practice developments, key elements of reflective practice and transformative learning. Our University of Cumbria graduate attributes recognise the importance of you being “self-reliant, adaptable and flexible” in your thinking and practice. This will be reflected in developing and enhancing your skills of enquiry and encouraging you to be “open to change” embracing the principles which underpin transformative learning. Our collaborative approach to learning has underpinned Practice Development programmes for many years and moving forward together we can support you as you adopt and benefit from the transformative learning process, which indicates an ongoing change and reflects the importance of life-long learning.In the case of the BSc (Hons) Health and Social Care: Practice Development you will be required to complete the following modules:• Core module: HCPD6019 Applied Critical Evaluation for Evidence Based Practice (20 credits)• Core module: HCPD6055 Communication Skills in Health and Social Care (20 credits)• Core module: HCPD6056 Collaborative Working in Health and Social Care (20 credits)• Core module: HCPD6076 Contemporary Approaches and Fundamental Principles of Safeguarding across the Lifespan (20 credits)• Core module: HCPD6057 Managing Self and Others (20 credits)• Core module: HCPD6002 Negotiated Learning (20 credits)Following completion of Level 6 study, the framework facilitates seamless progression to Level 7 study including PGCert, PGDip and MSc Practice Development.
