BSc (Hons) Professional Development in Health and Social Care
The BSc Professional Development is designed for people who are typically working in health and social care. Flexibility is key, and we design our modules on this course to allow for self-paced learning, with weekly classroom experience supplemented by additional learning resources provided online for independent study at times that fit around students’ commitments.
The programme is geared to stimulate self-directed, student-centred learning that encourages evidence-based practice, critical analysis, and promotes active learning through reflective practice. This is based on a belief that you will learn most effectively if you take responsibility for your own learning and make contributions to discussions drawing from your own experience. The theoretical components of the degree draw from the latest practice developments arising from research and other current literature.
The focus on you as a practitioner provides the opportunity for you to use personal experiences from work as a source of knowledge. You will be encouraged to examine these experiences and in turn integrate the work-based knowledge and skills that you develop throughout the programme within your practice.
The programme is focused on practice so that you can develop your understanding of the experience of illness and care for people effectively. You will be encouraged to use your experience as a source of knowledge and to examine those experiences. This will enable you to integrate practice skills with other knowledge and skills that you develop throughout your programme.
