This module is designed for healthcare practitioners who have undertaken, or are about to undertake, work related projects. This may include small audit, brief service evaluation or improvement, conference presentation, review of clinical guidelines, role development, or reflection on mandatory/in-service development programmes. It offers a flexible approach to learning that is primarily for recognition of learning in the clinical environment/employment setting.

By formulating a learning agreement a range of work based activities or related study can be used and presented in a written form for assessment and the award of academic credit. There are start dates for the module to run normally three times per year and manage applicants with a cohort specific date and a scheduled assessment deadline. The module leader will assign applicants for academic supervision, will negotiate the learning agreement, and arrange one-to-one support during the module period.

The applicants will normally need to consider suitable practice support from a mentor, manager or practice educator as appropriate to validate the planned activity in the work place. The assignment presentation will be negotiated with the module leader but is normally a written report, essay or reflective account.

Who is this module for?

Ideally the applicants to this module will already have completed academic study in higher education.  Whilst enrolled on this module and completing a work related activity, the student must be proactive in initiating support from both assigned academic and practice mentors.

Prior to application the candidate must anticipate the planned work-related activity and have discussed as appropriate the support required whilst on the module from a mentor, manager or practice educator.

Mode of Delivery
Online learning, work based learning and self-study - NOTE: In the autumn term, due to Covid-19 social distancing requirements, face-to-face teaching will be limited to clinically focused modules incorporating practical skills teaching. This will remain the case throughout the 2020/21 academic year, until social distancing requirements can be sufficiently relaxed to allow a greater proportion of on-site teaching. At the time of writing, it is not known when this will be.
