Course summary

**The FdA Social Care Mental Health Programme provides opportunity for students wanting to pursue a career or knowledge within the Mental Health sector. The current pandemic has had a detrimental impact upon society and, as consequence, ill mental health/poor mental health status has significantly increased. In North East Lincolnshire there has been an increase in accessing mental health services and referrals. The FdA Social Care Mental Health programme aims to equip students with knowledge surrounding contemporary mental health illnesses, interventions and care delivery. It will provide opportunities for applicants to upskill within sector during the work-based learning element, and develop key skills and knowledge that are essential for competent practice within the mental health sector.**On completion of the programme a graduate will be able to: - Promote the rights, strengths and wellbeing of people, families and communities; - Establish and maintain the trust and confidence of people; - Be accountable for the quality of their practice and the decisions they make within legal and policy frameworks; - Recognise the importance of continual engagement with critical professional development; - Act safely, respectfully and with professional integrity within anti discriminatory and anti-oppressive practice; - Work within ethical practice, promote concerns and act within professional standards/codes of practice. The general aims of the programme are to: - Provide a programme of study for those who currently work for or those wanting a career within the social care or mental health sector; - Equip students with the theoretical knowledge, professional conduct competencies and practice skills necessary to work with service users across different social care settings; - Develop reflective practitioners who are ‘fit for practice’ to safeguard the health and well-being of individuals with social care and/or mental health needs; - Enable progression onto a professional qualification; - Work based practice placement of 200 hours.This course is primarily designed for face-to-face learning, with attendance during lessons for the specified hours within the validation document. However, there may be periods of study where the government advises TEC Partnership that it is not safe to open campuses, or there is limited access due to social distancing measures. If the campus is closed, TEC Partnership will deliver your sessions online and offer you the necessary support and resources remotely. If there is limited access due to social distancing measures a blended model will be adopted, with some lessons taking place in small groups and others using online sessions and support. We will make decisions on the delivery hours for each programme as government advice becomes clearer. For the placements in your programme, TEC Partnership will do everything it can to ensure you have the opportunity to complete the placement element of your programme and/or potentially, where possible, amend the programme, removing the requirement for placement (or part thereof) if required.
