Course summary

What makes the Person-Centred Dementia Studies PG Certificate at the University of Worcester special?

Our Postgraduate Certificate in Person-Centred Dementia Studies has been designed specifically for current or potential future managers or leaders of dementia services in health and social care organisations, charities or businesses. Effective leadership in person-centred care is fundamental for the ability of an organisation to deliver services that work for people living with dementia. This course will provide you with evidence-based practical interventions to expand your knowledge and skills in order to provide exemplary dementia care.

The course provides a developmental route for health and social care professionals to improve the quality of their services. It aims to equip students with the knowledge, skills and resources to enable them to reach their full potential as skilled care givers, managers and leaders. The course content will reflect the requirements of the Dementia Training Standards Framework and will meet all of the Tier 3 leadership learning outcomes.

Key features

  • A flexible, multidisciplinary, student-centred route to postgraduate achievement, taught in a supportive online learning environment.
  • An opportunity to critically reflect on your own practice and role in the field of dementia care.
  • A chance to challenge your own values and attitudes and develop new ways of thinking in a supportive environment.
  • A stimulating environment where you can gain the confidence to feel you can shape future dementia care by challenging and enhancing current practice and approaches.
  • An opportunity to complete a series of modules which develop critical reflection, originality, critique and synthesis to inform evidence-based practice.
  • A critical appreciation of the varying perspectives and values of health and social care professionals, service users, carers and cultures.
  • A learning environment based on the values of academic freedom, ethical awareness and critical appraisal.

Where could it take you?

This course is suitable for practitioners and managers and future managers from any dementia service environment. The focus is on equipping you to develop in your existing role and your area of practice, introducing more effective ways of working within your organisation and giving you the potential to progress into strategic and leadership roles.

As part of the journey of professional and role development we encourage students to continue on their academic journey through access to a range of higher degrees including PhD, clinical doctorate and other taught doctorates.
