The Level 5 Certificate in Teaching Adult Literacy /Adult Numeracy / ESOL is designed for current teachers who wish to study to gain a nationally recognised specialist qualification. If you already hold a teaching qualification such as a Primary PGCE, Secondary PGCE or PcET PGCE or Cert Ed, then this course is for you. Students choose one pathway from a choice of three as their specialism:

* Adult Literacy & Communication
http://courses.southwales.ac.uk/courses/1543-advanced-certificate-in-teaching-adult-literacy-and-communication
* Adult Numeracy & Maths
http://courses.southwales.ac.uk/courses/1544-advanced-certificate-in-teaching-adult-numeracy-and-maths
* ESOL
http://courses.southwales.ac.uk/courses/1545-advanced-certificate-in-teaching-esol

The specialist certificate provides you with the opportunity to review and extend your subject knowledge, and develop professionally. You will be challenged to look at your teaching practice afresh and to develop new insights and approaches to your teaching. You will be guided and supported by our specialist teacher educators, all of whom are experienced teachers in their field, enthusiastic about their subject and committed to enhancing your experience. You will also be encouraged to learn from others in the group, share good practice and develop links with teachers from other organisations.

Throughout the course you will share ideas about learning and teaching, and form new professional networks and friendships. Our dedicated teaching staff will support you in developing your own confidence, and understanding of, your subject.

On completion, you will gain a Level 5 Certificate in Teaching Adult Literacy & Communication OR Adult Numeracy & Maths OR ESOL.

What you study

You study in a subject-specialist cohort with opportunities to share good practice and professional experience with others in the group.

You will deepen your understanding of English language, literacy or numeracy (as appropriate) as a subject area. This will include knowledge of key questions, theories and concepts in your subject, as well as the development of your own personal skills in the subject area.

Learning & Assessment methods

Through assignments such as individual student case studies, presentations and seminars, teaching practice and reflections on theory and practice, you will extend your own practice and deepen your understanding of learning and teaching in your specialist subject.

We will consider how the theories of learning and assessment can be applied to the teaching of your subject. You will be encouraged to analyse and critique policies and practices relating to the teaching of your subject, and to develop your own considered approach to teaching language, literacy or numeracy.

Where Next?

It is expected that the specialist certificate will increasingly become a requirement in the sector. Furthermore, evidence from past years shows that completion of such courses enhances the career and employment potential of course members. The University's MA Education programme offers specialist routes for further, advanced study including the MA TESOL.

The Masters in Nursing (MN) enables you to achieve a post-graduate qualification and professional registration. The MN underpins all aspects of nursing practice and leads to eligibility for registration on the Nursing and Midwifery Council professional register in one of the four fields: Adult Health /Child Health /Mental Health /Learning Disability.

It is a full-time, three year, post-graduate degree course which aims to provide you with a range of learning, teaching and assessment experiences that will enable you to become a critically reflective, post-graduate nurse with an in-depth knowledge and understanding of your respective field of nursing.

Throughout this programme you will be in University studying theory (50%) and then have the opportunity to engage in clinical-based learning (50%) in a variety of hospital and community settings within the Lothian and Borders area. Integrated into this programme is the opportunity to engage in voluntary and elective practice placements locally or internationally.

What you'll learn

Nurses today need to be able to demonstrate competence in nursing care across the patient’s lifespan. To deliver this, they need to be able to work flexibly, inter-professionally and collaboratively in a dynamic and ever changing health care arena.
Our nursing programme has been written to take account of the key drivers in health care at local, national and international levels and was developed in partnership with our clinical partners, students, service users and carers.

During each year of the programme you will learn alongside colleagues in all fields of nursing, and will work with peers from the MN and the undergraduate nursing programme. The course is designed so that you will acquire in-depth knowledge and understanding which gives you specific skills, knowledge and competences to work within a variety of health-care settings. There is increasing nursing field specialisation as the programme progresses which keeps you abreast of the current developments within your chosen field of nursing. On completion, this course will support you to become a creative, innovated and dynamic nurse with an excellent grounding in nursing theory and practice.

Year 1 lays the foundations about what the role of the nurse is and introduces you to the Nursing and Midwifery code as well as theories and models of nursing and nursing skills. It also focuses on anatomy and physiology, determinants of health across the life span, communication, compassionate care, and ethics and inter-professional working. You will also begin to develop academic and research skills.

Year 2 to builds on the work undertaken previously, but also introduces factors which influence health and well-being such as global and national public health priorities. You will explore the impact of altered health status on the individual and their family/carers over the life span. In addition, you will acquire deeper understanding of inter-professional healthcare delivery which includes looking at aspects of co-production, individuals’ rights and inclusion.

Year 3 builds and consolidates your knowledge within your specific field of nursing. Here you will looks more specifically at complex health care needs, health care delivery, interventions, governance, leadership and decision-making. You will undertake a literature review which provides opportunities to build upon your prior learning and experience in an area of interest to you.

Placements

- Time spent on placement:
During the course you will spend 50% of your time involved in academic study and 50% in clinical practice. A clinical practice placement allows you to put theory into practice by working with a range of health professionals in clinical situations to develop the skills, knowledge and experience required to become a competent nurse. Although sometimes challenging, practice learning is one of the most interesting and exciting aspects of learning to be a nurse.

- Clinical settings:
At LSBU, you will experience a variety of clinical settings such as NHS acute Trusts, community placements, independent sector and voluntary sector organisations.

If you are based at our Southwark campus you are able to experience placements at Guy's Hospital, St Thomas' Hospital, University College London Hospital, Newham University Hospital and Whipps Cross University Hospital. You will also undertake a placement in the community.

If you are based at our Havering campus you are able to experience placements at Newham University Hospital, Whipps Cross University Hospital, King George Hospital and Queen's Hospital; along with a placement within the community.

- Structure of placements:
Placements are spread over the two years:

Your first clinical placements are designed to introduce you to working in a professional setting and to develop essential care and basic assessment skills, infection control and learn about safeguarding vulnerable people.

You will then begin to take on more responsibility, progressing your clinical reasoning skills and begin to look small groups of patients making confident, proactive decision for their health management with little supervision.

You will also have one four week elective placement in which you can choose a speciality (e.g. working with Clinical Nurse Specialists, specialist services or independent and 3rd sector providers), or a different context of care (e.g. prison, private health care facility, social care, charity, hospice etc.), or a lived experience of a certain condition (e.g. charity work, carer shadowing, etc.)

-Supported by a mentor
Whilst in the clinical placement we ensure you receive continuous support and guidance from a dedicated mentor and practice learning teams made up of lecturers and practitioners.

Facilities

- Adult Nursing skills laboratories
We have two adult nursing skills laboratories at our Southwark campus and three at our Havering campus. Our nursing skills labs; set up like hospital wards are used by all student nurses and midwives throughout their courses. They learn manual handling and basic life support skills and skills that are specific to their field of nursing or midwifery.

- SimMan
The nursing wards have simulator mannequins: SimMan, SimBaby and SimMom. These life-size mannequins are computer controlled and can be programmed with various clinical conditions. These are operated by a computer in real-time and so respond to a student's actions. They also allow students to see the outcome of specific interventions in certain scenarios, which could make the patient better or deteriorate quite quickly.

The mannequins are used to teach students how to recognise clinical signs, and to also associate those clinical signs with the actions they are taking to care for the patient. SimMan can be male or converted to female with fully accurate anatomy and can breathe, blink, sweat, speak and groan in pain as well as have a pulse. Read more about SimMan here http://www.lsbu.ac.uk/case-studies/sim-man .

They are also designed so that you can rehearse ways of thinking and acting that are professionally relevant. Examples include: written assignments ranging from reflective pieces to case studies and academic essays as well as assessed practice within your placements. Assessments are also designed to support you integrating learning in theory and practice and in demonstrating that integration. The assessments culminate in a choice of dissertation projects: a service improvement project, a literature review or a research proposal

Specialising in adult nursing means that you will work with adults of all ages, with diverse health conditions. Nursing is concerned with the holistic care of an individual. The practitioner employs skills and knowledge to promote and maintain health and to restore physical, social and psychological wellbeing wherever possible. Adult nursing strives to maintain the dignity and independence of the client, supporting individuals to achieve as full a recovery as is possible.

Communication skills are essential to set patients at ease under pressurised and sometimes difficult situations, as is the ability to assess, plan, implement and evaluate the care offered to each patient. You must be willing to take responsibility for someone else’s health and wellbeing, and show the compassion needed to ensure a good nurse-patient relationship.

Unlike many of the older, traditional nursing schools, at Essex you receive a fresh, contemporary and relevant nurse education programme, integrated into a University that is one of the UK's top ten research institutions. We specialise in applied, multidisciplinary research, and also host the NIHR Research Design Service for the East of England.

There are four main types of pre-registration nursing degree – child, learning disabilities, adult and mental health. As we focus solely on adult nursing and mental health nursing, you can come to us knowing that you will graduate with the best training possible in your field.

Our MSc Adult Nursing (pre-registration) is one several options for studying nursing within our School of Health and Human Sciences, all of which lead to eligibility to apply for registration with the Nursing and Midwifery Council and an associated academic award; for a full list of the courses available, and information on all of the routes into Nursing available at Essex including our Return to Practice course, please see our department pages - http://www.essex.ac.uk/hhs/subjects/nursing.aspx

Placement Opportunities

In order to provide excellent clinical learning experiences for our students, we work in partnership with the NHS and with the independent health and social care sector across Essex to provide placement opportunities. You will work with experienced nurses in a diverse range of clinical settings (primary and secondary care, public and private sectors, adult and the elderly, acute care and specialist services).

Whilst on placement you will have a mentor allocated to you, and contact with a member of the academic team linked to that placement.

You can choose to study this course at either our Colchester campus or our Southend campus - and your placements will correspond to the campus you choose. Colchester students will have placements in north Essex, while Southend students will have placements in south Essex.

Professional accreditation

Successful completion of the course will allow you to register as a qualified nurse with the Nursing and Midwifery Council.

NHS Constitution Values

We are committed to embedding the NHS Constitution Values (which are strongly reflected in our University values) into everything we do. They define the behaviours and expectations of all our staff and students, underpinning the work we do in the university, clinical arena and other workplaces.

We understand that not all of our students and staff are employed within the NHS, but these values uphold the underlying principles of excellent care as a standard and as such we expect that anyone who has any aspect of their work which ultimately cares for others, will aspire to uphold these values.

For us, involving not only our students but service users, experts by experience, carers and NHS/non NHS professionals in the creation and delivery of all programmes is vital.

Specialist facilities

The School of Health and Human Sciences is located at two sites; in the Kimmy Eldridge building at our Colchester campus and in the Gateway Building at our Southend campus.

We have purpose-built nursing skills labs at both our Colchester and Southend campuses.

Within our School of Health and Human Sciences, we have a range of specialist clinical laboratories and IT facilities to assist you with effective learning and the acquisition of new skills.

We offer excellent physical and online resources in terms of libraries, computer labs, datasets, archives and other research materials. You can take advantage of our links with the Institute of Social and Economic Research, which conducts large-scale survey projects, many for government, EU and other public agencies, and has its own library. The UK Data Archive is also based at our Colchester Campus and stores national research data.

Adult Nursing aims to provide graduates holding a health-related degree the opportunity to study at Level 7 – the theory that underpins nursing practice and develops knowledge and skills through evidence-based learning. Practice experience is gained in both hospital and community settings. On successful completion of this programme students will be able to enter Part one (Adult) of the Register held by the NMC.

The Adult Nursing course has been developed to prepare students to be safe, effective and caring practitioners who are ready to work with adults with a variety of care needs across a range of dependencies, with a wide diversity of needs and in a varied range of care settings as well as their carers and supporters.

The Adult Nursing course provides students with the skills, knowledge and experience to care for adults across a range of health care settings. The course focuses on acute illness, older people and the care and management of patients with long term conditions. In addition, the delivery of public health interventions and the care of people at all stages of their life, including end of life care is explored across a range of modules and practice learning experiences.

Course structure

The framework for the MNurs Award has been specifically designed to permit Accreditation of Prior Learning (APL) and Accreditation of Prior Experiential Learning (APEL) as described by the NMC with a view to preparing students who are already graduates and/or who have relevant clinical experience for registration. APL / APEL will involve students making a written submission to detail how the requirements of the course have been met through prior study as well as providing evidence of relevant practice experience in a health care support worker role.

The course involves continuous assessment of both theory and practice. A variety of assessment methods are used including practical examinations, case studies, essays, written examinations and presentations. Students are also assessed against the NMC’s competencies for registration during a series of practice placements in hospital and the community.

The Nursing (Adult) MNurs course prepares successful students for a career as a registered nurse in the relevant field of practice. Newly qualified nurses can apply for posts within a hospital or community setting. This course may also enable individuals to develop a clinical research career within the NHS.

In line with the principles and values which underpin the NHS constitution, the University expects all students undertaking programmes which lead to registration as a health professional to demonstrate the NHS values.

Careers

Once you have completed the programme and registered with the NMC, most people get some experience as a staff nurse, usually within community or in-patient organisations operating within the NHS, voluntary and independent sectors of health. The opportunities are endless but some ‘typical’ career options are presented below.
-Some people are keen to remain working directly with service users in clinical areas and seek promotion to senior staff nurse or ward sister / manager roles where their expertise is used to lead care given by a team of nurses. Some adult nurses develop particular clinical skills and knowledge that will allow them to become specialist nurses in a given area of care (e.g. district nurse, clinical nurse specialist or nurse consultant).
-These clinical grades co-exist within a wider career framework incorporating management roles such as Modern Matron all the way through to very senior board level roles such as Director of Nursing in an NHS Primary Care or Acute Trust. These roles involve managing multi-million pound budgets and directly leading/ managing a large number of staff as well as strategically influencing how the NHS responds to new developments.
-Some nurses develop interest in research and education and opt to pursue educationally focussed careers within the NHS or in further and higher education institutions such as the University of Hertfordshire. They still retain their professional registration and unique identity as an Adult Nurse but are involved in advancing nursing knowledge and influence through research and education.

Wherever your career takes you, as an Adult Nurse you will never stop learning and will undertake a variety of training and education throughout your career. This might be formal education such as specialist clinical courses or PhD studies or essential skills training associated with professional practice.

Teaching methods

You will experience a wide variety of teaching methods throughout the programme including:
-Supervised practice experiences in clinical settings and simulation labs
-Interactive and ‘key-note’ lectures at University
-Seminars and workshops incorporating for example ,case/ care plan presentations, role play, scenario based learning and discussion groups covering a wide variety of topics
-Laboratory based practical work/ experiments
-Learning technologies for example video, podcasts, digital storyboards and other e-packages designed to enhance learning and teaching. These packages are supported by an extremely well stocked learning resource centre and via a virtual learning environment called StudyNet which enables you to access resources on line 24 hours and day, 7 days a week
-Individual and group based tutorials will also feature in your learning experience

Work Placement

You will experience a wide variety of clinical settings including for example:
-Acute Care settings such as general and specialist surgical wards, medical wards, accident and emergency departments etc
-Community based settings such as working with district nurses in service users own homes or in facilities such as GP practices, nursing homes or community hospitals
-You may be placed in settings such as hospices and other private or voluntary organisations which care for a variety of medical conditions and illnesses and health care needs

Placements are organised in blocks of variable duration and will be located anywhere in London. Whilst on placement, you will be supported by a mentor (a qualified nurse who has undertaken post qualifying learning in practice based education); a link lecturer (an academic from within the school who supports mentors in placement areas) and wealth of supportive services available on campus through the student union and student services.
