Learning and teaching

Our programmes are modular, consisting of self-contained units, taught and assessed on a semester basis. As you progress through each semester and successfully pass the examinations, you will receive credit for the units, thus providing you with a clear indication of your academic progress.

The majority of the content of the programme is delivered online to allow you to engage in flexible study alongside your clinical practice. To complement the online teaching there is a face-to-face induction event at the University and residential teaching weeks in the first and second years of the programme. Reflective, practice-based elements are provided through professional experiential learning and online virtual workshops.

Methods of assessment

You will be assessed through written assignments and case studies, a portfolio of clinical experience, the OSCE Examination and a Dissertation. Each unit is assessed individually.

Assignments are delivered online and must also be submitted online. The formative assessment includes moderated online discussions, self-assessment questions and online multiple choice tests.

Summative assessment will vary between units but will typically include some of the following:

Compilation of portfolio of evidence [SEM in Practice]
OSCE examination [SEM in Practice]
Maintaining a reflective practitioner portfolio [SEM in Practice]
Essays
Case studies
Short answer questions
Recorded consultations

- Accreditation of Prior Learning (APL):
If you have a previous qualification, or undertaken postgraduate units from another institution, you may be eligible to transfer credit for this prior learning.

Depending on the programme of study, you can gain APL for up to 50% of the total credits required (this credit must have been obtained within the previous five years).

- Accreditation of Prior Experiential Learning (APEL)
You may also apply for APEL by submitting a portfolio of evidence, demonstrating that you have successfully achieved the learning outcomes for the specific unit(s) you seek exemption from.

We recommend you discuss this with the Director of Studies first to ensure this is suitable, as creating your portfolio can be very time consuming.

We will not permit exemptions of fractional units, and so the minimum threshold for the applications of APEL procedures will be a single, free standing unit (including three credit units). The maximum threshold for exemption will normally be 50% of the total credits required for a programme of study, for example, a 45-credit exemption towards a 90-credit Masters degree.

About the department

The School for Health was established within the University of Bath in 2003, to centralise the high profile research and teaching in the health-related disciplines already taking place throughout the university, so creating a single entity through which links with the health sector at national and international level can be channelled, co-ordinated and developed.

In 2010 the School joined the Faculty of Humanities & Social Sciences and became the Department for Health, providing excellent opportunities for academic teaching and research collaborations with other departments, such as Psychology and Social & Policy Sciences. The Department's postgraduate teaching and research programmes now form part of the Faculty's new Graduate School, also launched in 2010, providing postgraduate students with dedicated support and a strong community in which to base their studies - whether on campus or by distance learning.

In keeping with government initiatives surrounding population health and more general public concerns, the Department divides its activities between two main pillars: Healthcare and Population Health – one focuses on the NHS, healthcare and health services research and the other focuses on population health, healthy living, sport & physical activity and tobacco control; each of these groups, in turn, contain both teaching programmes and research activities. Furthermore, there is a bridging spine between both pillars and which houses the Professional Doctorate in Health, Research in Health Practice and the administrative, finance, learning & teaching development, marketing and support activities of the Department.

The Department’s aims are:

- To develop a research portfolio that is both of the highest academic standard and has applications in the real world
- To build on external links with the public services and other bodies concerned with health and society
- To innovate design and delivery of healthcare services
- To change corporate approaches to healthy organisations
- To support government reform of health and social care provision
- To identify and facilitate opportunities for academic collaboration and new developments.

The Department's postgraduate taught programmes combine academic excellence with flexible and innovative design and delivery; our postgraduate portfolio is distinguished by the provision of a number of Professional Masters and a Professional Doctorate programme designed to be studied part-time by learners working in a wide range of healthcare roles from all around the world. All our postgraduate courses are taught online and this has proved to be one of our unique selling points, with students able to continue within their practice area or working environment whilst gaining a further qualification.

The Department is renowned for its exemplary attention to educational design, integrating knowledge with research evidence and resulting in programmes which are highly relevant to contemporary practice; in addition, the Department boasts some of the most innovative and successful approaches to online and part-time education, recognised through a number of awards.

At all levels, learning and teaching in the Department provides a strong focus on high quality education for real world situations and produces graduates with skills and knowledge relevant to professional roles and in high demand from employers.

Teaching programmes on offer within the Department include:

- Sport & Exercise Medicine, the world renowned flexible masters programme exclusively for doctors
- Sports Physiotherapy, a specialist programme designed by physiotherapists for physiotherapists
- Research in Health Practice, a programme launched in 2008 aimed at health and social care professionals interested in conducting their own research
- The innovative Professional Doctorate in Health which focuses on both Population Health and Healthcare within the Department, providing a doctoral level programme to develop expert practitioners and researchers in practice.

This course is primarily intended for qualified social work practitioners who are registered with the HCPC and undertake direct work with children and young people, their families and/or carers. Colleagues from other disciplines may register for individual modules but are not eligible for either the full or any intermediate award.

The taught element of the course is delivered on a part time basis over 2 academic years. There are 6 modules, each attracting 20 academic credits. Each module involves 5 or 6 days of teaching in blocks of 2 or 3 days. All the modules may be taken on an individual basis.

Overall, the course seeks to highlight the importance of attachment minded practice, strengths based approaches, narrative thinking and relationship-based practice in direct work with children, young people, their families and carers. Attention to the user experience, working alongside colleagues from other agencies and disciplines, and anti-oppressive practice feature throughout the programme.Ultimately our aim is for our candidates to be known as 'thinking performers'.

All of our modules aim to address aspects of the Knowledge and Skills Statement for Child and Family Social Work and the domains of the Professional Capabilities Framework at either social worker (modules 1 and 6) or experienced social worker levels (modules 2-5).

Module 1: A Consolidation Module (6 days)

This module includes attention to: diversity, reflection and reflexivity; child development; communication and engagement; interagency working and safeguarding; and information sharing. Ideas from relationship based practice and attachment theory are prominent in the module. The module may be taken during or following the Assessed and Supported Year in Employment and aims to provide a solid grounding from which practitioners should be able to address the Knowledge and Skills Statement for Child and Family Social Work.

Module 2: Law and Professional Practice (5 days)

This module is in two parts - the first 3 days are led by a practising barrister and aims to ensure candidates have an up-to-date grasp of current child care law. The final 2 days look at presenting complex information in formal arenas (for example at case conferences and court). There is a strong skills element to this section of the programme.

Module 3: Assessment and Risk (6 days)

This module aims to develop practitioner skills in assessing complex situations and starts with an overview of analysis and assessment in direct practice. Thinking about adult states of mind about their early attachment experiences in the context of assessing caregiving capabilities, as well as assessing risk from a strengths based perspective feature.

Module 4: Child Centred Practice / Child Observation (6 days)

The primary aim of this module is to encourage practitioners to adopt a more child centred (as opposed to child focused) approach to their work. Mind-mindedness is emphasised alongside thinking about practice from a narrative perspective and promoting resiliences. This module includes inputs from service users.

Module 5: Change, Transitions and Empowerment (6 days)

This module canvasses some of the key ideas about change, particularly in relation to direct work. The importance of transitions and relationships are emphasised alongside motivational interviewing and systemic ideas about change.

Module 6: Practice Education: Stage 1 (5 days)

This module enables candidates to directly supervise, teach and assess social work students (except final year students. Stage 2 will be needed for that). They will have demonstrated and provided evidence of how they met the Stage 1 Practice Educator Professional Standards (PEPS) and shown a sound value base as a practice educator.
