Course summary

Do you want to build on your experience as a health or social care practitioner? Are you keen to develop an understanding of the knowledge and evidence that positively contribute to the health and wellbeing of persons, groups and populations? Our innovative Person-Centred Practice (PCP) Framework offers a flexible suite of course routes that will give you a valuable, career-expanding qualification in person-centred practice.

With part-time and full-time options, this Framework will appeal to health and social care professionals and graduates in health or social care who wish to develop their careers. We have carefully structured the Framework to be as flexible as possible, so you can study the route that best meets your professional background and future aspirations.

Why QMU?

  • You will engage with contemporary, creative and interactive learning approaches that are designed to help you thrive in your studies.

  • Flexible pathways, allowing you to personalise your learning to your own situation.

Person-Centred Practice Framework overview

This Framework is for graduates and practitioners who wish to develop their careers in the broad field of health and social care. You can personalise your learning to your own situation – for example mental health, social care, infection control, acute care or community health. You can also sign up to study single modules.

Structure

To obtain a specific postgraduate award at QMU you must complete a number of credit-bearing modules. You can exit all routes with a PgCert or PgDip, and some courses also offer an MSc. You can also register as an associate student to complete a single module for CPD. On completion of a single module, you may wish to complete further modules and progress your studies to a named award.

Teaching, learning and assessment

Our teaching, learning and assessment strategy is framed by our core philosophical concepts of personhood, person-centredness, human valuing, healthful relations, human potential and development, and supportive and enabling environments. Central to this strategy is the need for learners to engage in the learning experiences, a readiness to listen and explore, preparedness to be open to experiences and a resolve to keep going.

Careers

Graduates have taken up advanced specialist practice and leadership roles within their specialist field of practice.
