Course summary

OVERVIEW

Taught by Psychological wellbeing practitioners, psychotherapists and psychologists who are specialists in specific areas of CAMHS, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Education.

The programme is designed to equip students with the skills to work with children, young people and parents to assess and support for common mental health difficulties, including depression and anxiety through cognitive behavioural therapy approaches.

The Diploma consists of 4 compulsory 30 credit modules, assessed at Level 7.

Course Details

The programme uses lectures, skills workshops and seminars, work-based learning, and supervision (led by the HEI and by workplace supervisors) to support students in developing knowledge and critical understanding of low intensity working in child and adolescent mental health in schools and colleges.

It is therefore assumed that the employer will provide students with sufficient support and time to complete their assessed work and to participate fully in all elements of their learning.

Successful applicants are recruited into a full-time Role within a Mental Health Support Team linked with schools. The attendance to the course is part-time within this training scheme, days not at university are spent in school placement.

The PGDip places a strong emphasis on work based learning, and students will develop and assess the knowledge and skills developed in workshops, individual and online learning contexts, supported by academic staff as well as supervisors in learning sets in their places of work. Students' participation in the PGDip is with the full support of their employer, who has collaborated with the University to recruit students to work in their service and be trained on the programme.

Computer Facilities

The course draws heavily on the internet (particularly our Nile platform), as a means of communicating with students, and as a learning platform. If you do not have internet access at home, please familiarise yourself with the large range of computer facilities the university offers. Students have access to IT suites in the Learning Hub, computers in the library.
