This course has been designed to enable health and social care professionals to enhance care provided to patients and families facing physical, psychosocial and spiritual issues associated with life-limiting illness.

It is based on the core competencies in palliative care identified by the European Association for Palliative Care. It is also congruent with core competences and principles for health and social care professionals working with adults at the end of life and aligns with DH and HEE priorities for workforce development in palliative and end of life care. It reflects the multi-professional nature of palliative care and health and social care professionals are given the opportunity to learn together; therefore, student learning is facilitated by a multi-professional teaching team using a Blended Learning Approach with a particular emphasis on linking theory to practice.

The course offers flexibility where students can choose to undertake the course on full time or part time basis. In addition, the course offers a choice of module from the CPPD portfolio to suits student’s personal and professional needs. Please see the website for more information:

Assessment

The course utilises a variety of assessment strategies that have been designed to reflect the interdisciplinary nature of palliative care practice and to respond to the learning needs of students from different clinical backgrounds; in addition, ensuring that all the learning outcomes are met.

The postgraduate certificate in Palliative and End of Life Care comprises a range of assessment methods including; problem based case-scenario multiple choice question exam, case study assignment and oral presentation.

The postgraduate diploma in Palliative and End of Life Care comprises a research methods module, which is assessed by a research critique, enabling students to develop practical skills for identifying, critically reviewing and synthesising research evidence relevant to palliative care practice.

The MSc Palliative and End of Life Care comprises of a dissertation module, enabling students to consolidate and extend their understanding of research and evaluation design or of systematic literature review.

Teaching and learning

A Blended Learning Approach approach is used, meaning student learning is facilitated through a combination of face to face teaching and delivery of content via digital and online media. It allows for a greater variety and flexibility than a traditional classroom set up and responds to the learning needs of modern learners. For example, a classroom lecture may be accompanied by online discussion forums or other online activities where students have the opportunity to interact and share experiences and knowledge with some element of student control over time, place and space.

Students will be supported to develop their academic skills and be able to work at level 7. This will be facilitated through tutorials, workshops and feedback from formative assessments. Skills for learning team will provide a workshop at the beginning of each semester on critical thinking, academic writing and use of grammar. Students can access additional support through the student centre as needed. The module leader and teaching team will provide tutorials on assessments and review draft work of students as needed. Assessment feedback will also provide guidance that will assist further academic development.

Each student will be assigned a named academic contact as a personal tutor who will be selected from the course team. The personal tutors will provide academic guidance and pastoral support across the programme of study and review wider academic progress. Formal meeting will be scheduled once every academic year to facilitate progress, review and provide academic feedback. Additional meetings can be arranged as required.

Professional links

This course is jointly delivered by London South Bank University and Saint Francis Hospice.

The PGCE is aligned with the Northern Ireland Curriculum, training graduates to teach across the 11-18 year age range. You will gain a postgraduate qualification and qualified teacher status (QTS).

The PGCE combines university-based tuition, consisting of taught sessions and directed independent study, with professional placements in schools. The programme of study is organised around three interdependent strands:
• Professional School-based Experience - focuses on developing practical teaching competence particularly through working closely with experienced teachers during periods of school placement.
• Subject Studies (eg English, Mathematics) - how to teach your subject.
• Educational Studies - common aspects of teaching and the professional role of the teacher, including pastoral care, promotion of inclusion, theories of learning, educational disadvantage, assessment and management.

Subjects

The PGCE trains students to teach the following school subjects up to Advanced-level GCE:
English
Mathematics
Information Technology/Computing
Modern Languages (applicants, including native speakers of languages other than English or Irish, should normally offer at least one of French, Irish or Spanish. German and Italian might also be considered as second languages offered. Native speakers will be assessed during interview in a curricular language other than their native language. Modern Languages students should state specific language(s) on the supplementary application form. Note that German alone is not considered).
Science (Biology, Chemistry, Physics)
Sociology
Politics
Religious Education
IME (Irish Medium Education) - Extra places are reserved to prepare those who are interested in teaching a subject through the medium of Irish in Irish medium schools. These students do a number of elements, including a Gaeltacht residentual in the August preceding the course, which is delivered by St Mary's University College, Belfast. They receive an additional certificate in IME and applications are welcomed from students wishing to do such courses in one of the subjects listed above.

The PGCE combines university-based tuition, consisting of taught sessions and directed independent study, with
professional placements in schools. The programme of study is organised around three interdependent strands:
• Professional School-based Experience - focuses on developing practical teaching competence particularly
through working closely with experienced teachers during periods of school placement.
• Subject Studies (eg English, Mathematics) - how to teach your subject.
• Educational Studies - common aspects of teaching and the professional role of the teacher, including pastoral
care, promotion of inclusion, theories of learning, educational disadvantage, assessment and management.

Students are assessed on these three strands of practical, professional and acedemic competences. Coursework comprises subject studies assignments, practical teaching and core tasks arising from lectures, workshops and tutorials addressing key educational issues.

Students are also offered optional, non-assessed workshops on a variety of topics including special educational needs, classroom management, pastoral care, diversity and inclusion, children’s rights and digital storytelling.

Course Structure

After enrolment and registration in early September, you will complete a two week block experience in a primary school. The next block of the course is devoted to university-based tuition (an induction week, taught sessions and directed independent study). This is followed by your first 10 week period of professional placement based in a school (which we arrange).This block practice straddles the Christmas vacation, so you will only be free to take the same holiday as that of the school in which you are placed. At the beginning of February, you return to university-based tuition in preparation for your second 10 week professional period in a school different from that of your first placement. This second placement straddles the Easter period and again the vacation is determined by the school in which you are placed.A final week of university-based tuition completes the course at the beginning of June.

Successful completion of the PGCE depends on achieving satisfactory standards in both practical teaching and in course work. The extended placements are in two different schools, normally one spent in a school catering for 11 – 16 age range and the other in an 11 – 18 age range. This ensures a varied experience of teaching in different schools and working with pupils from the whole ability range. In the two post-primary schools
you will work closely with members of each school’s staff. Your subject methods lecturer from Queen’s will also maintain close co-operative links with these teachers during your school placements.

Overview

Primarily aimed at those who are employed or volunteer as chaplains, this part-time, work-based course will provide you with groundings in both the theological and pastoral aspects of the role and give you part qualification towards being recognised as a youth and community worker. Our primary partners are Birmingham Archdiocese Diocesan Educational Services (DES) and the Diocesan Youth Service, who run a network of chaplains in schools. Newman continues to make additional links with other networks including Muslim chaplains, prison chaplains, university chaplains, and chaplains in homeless and housing organisations.

The Programme

The programme can be taken as either a graduate certificate or a postgraduate certificate and consists of three modules. You will undertake a core module on Chaplaincy where you will explore and understand pastoral care in institutional settings, ensuring that you are able to base your practice as a chaplain on a secure grasp of faith tradition, texts (e.g. introduction to biblical texts), acts of worship and pastoral care within the context of working in schools. The module will also help you develop an understanding of what contributes towards spiritual and human development from a faith perspective.

In addition, you will also undertake a fieldwork module which is an essential element of our integrated model and meets professional standards. Your organisation will have substantial involvement in this module as supervisors (and therefore assessors) with the emphasis being on experiential learning in the field, with initial taught input by Newman staff. This will be run via a tutorial group in your localities.
