Designed for both medical and managerial staff, our Patient Safety programmes - Postgraduate Certificate (PG Cert), Diploma (PG Dip) and Master’s (MSc) degrees - help students become leaders in patient safety and quality. Through exposure to internationally-renowned teaching staff and blended-learning workshops, practicums and experiential learning, students are equipped with the tools to tackle challenges arising from healthcare’s ever-changing landscape.

A particular emphasis is placed on translation and leadership – marrying theoretical understanding with practical knowledge of how to make sustainable change. Students are encouraged and guided by expert instructors and best-practice case studies to think outside-the-box on the architecture, implementation and evaluation of patient safety and quality solutions. For example, Modules 3 and 4 (the Social Impact of Patient Safety and Human Factors and Organisations) challenge students to think about the potential impact of new interventions to patients, carers, members of the family and healthcare staff, and support students to tackle said challenges through practical sessions led by expert interaction designers.

Programme structure

The programme features three distinct awards: the Postgraduate Certificate (PG Cert), Postgraduate Diploma (PG Dip) and the Master’s Degree (MSc Patient Safety). Students can choose the level of commitment depending on their educational needs and can continue further should they change their minds.

Visit the website: http://www.chi.ac.uk/ma-pg-dip-pg-certificate-practice-education

Course detail

The Postgraduate Certificate Practice Education is two module programme, which will enable you to fulfil the role of Practice Educator: supporting, assessing and training student social workers in practice.

Module 1: Practice Education 1, meets Stage 1 of the new Practice Educator Professional Standards (PEPS); you will normally complete this module in one year.

Module 2: Practice Education 2, meets Stage 2 of the PEPS, and successful completion of both modules will result in the award of the Postgraduate Certificate. A key feature of this programme is the possibility of importing and ‘upgrading’ credit from previously completed ‘ Enabling Learning ‘ courses . This may allow you to progress directly to the Practice Education 2 module and complete the Postgraduate Certificate in one year.

Format and assessment

The Postgraduate Certificate is a 60 credit course, and therefore comprises one third of the 180 credits required for the award of an MA. You can exit with the award of the Postgraduate Certificate, or may build upon this to complete your Postgraduate Diploma (a further 60 credits). A 60 credit dissertation module will then complete your MA. You can progress through the various levels of the programme at a pace that suits your professional and personal requirements: you may take between three and seven years to complete the full MA.
