This professional development programme is part of a framework of awards which enables you to address your individual learning requirements and to reflect your individual or your employer's needs, while offering you the opportunity to gain a recognisable academic award. Read more
This professional development programme is part of a framework of awards which enables you to address your individual learning requirements and to reflect your individual or your employer's needs, while offering you the opportunity to gain a recognisable academic award.

Based on the principles of credit accumulation and transfer, the Professional Development Award framework allows you to negotiate your own programme of study and to gain a University of the West of England (UWE) qualification with the title Professional Development. Uniquely, you can choose from learning opportunities from within and outside UWE (subject to availability) to maintain, improve and broaden your knowledge and skills and to develop the personal qualities required in your professional life.

In addition to a compulsory UWE work-based learning project module you can negotiate a study route to meet your requirements, which will be assessed and allow you to accumulate the credits you need for your target award. These can be made up of a combination of taught academic modules, work-based learning and different forms of enquiry.

Course detail

The Award Framework allows you to use a larger amount of blended learning than you can on more traditional courses as it will allow for the acceptance of credit from other awarding bodies and enable the integration of short courses, CPD and experiential learning into the qualification.

UWE work-based learning project modules provide a means of assessing experiential and other non-credit rated learning. Further study to extend your knowledge and skills can be negotiated from within and outside UWE in the context of your specific professional and personal development. The different learning opportunities can be consolidated within your personal programme.

From an employer's perspective this programme could be a way of addressing skill shortages by re-skilling existing employees and meeting overall objectives of staff development. One of its advantages is that it could be tailored to provide a bespoke qualification addressing the specific needs of an organisation, whilst also offering a University award as an outcome which would be valued by employers and employees alike. We can also work with you to accredit your in-house training programmes so contact us to discuss your workforce development needs.

Format

There are no common pathways through the Professional Development (PD) programmes. Other than completion of the compulsory UWE work-based learning project module the content will reflect individual choice. You can choose taught modules from a wide range of UWE courses, as well as bringing credits obtained from other Higher Education Institutions, which UWE will assess and accredit to your award.

There is also the opportunity to achieve a bespoke award consisting of a number of focused work-based learning modules, based on your employment needs.

Assessment

Assessment for the work-based learning elements of the programme is carried out through coursework, which typically comprises reflective essays and interviews, and work-based projects. Assessment methods are used which reflect both the practical and applied nature of the programme. Assessment should include formative assessment of learning in context.

Assessment of more formally taught modules and modules for the assessment of experiential learning will use a range of approaches, negotiated between the academic facilitator, learner and the workplace.

Funding

- Pharmacists in the South West region seeking HESW funded places
In response to specific commissioning requirements from HESW, we have been working in partnership with the University of the West of England (UWE) to develop a new interprofessional Non-Medical Prescribing Programme for a range of the non-medical professions eligible to train as prescribers (including pharmacists, nurses and the allied health profession registrants of the Health and Care Professions Council). This partnership between the University of Bath and UWE is called the South West Non-Medical Prescribing Alliance (http://www1.uwe.ac.uk/whatcanistudy/professionaldevelopment/coursesbysector/health/non-medicalprescribing.aspx).

The first intake of the new interprofessional Non-Medical Prescribing Programme will be in September 2016. Students applying for HESW funded places on this Programme will enrol directly as UWE students.

To apply for a HESW funded place, candidates need to have provided details of their requirement for a place into the ‘demand forecast’ for HESW funded places. The demand forecast process is conducted by UWE. Normally information on the requirement for funded places should be collated and submitted into the demand forecast by the employing organisation, or the local CCG. However, if individuals are in doubt about how to do this (particularly those employed in the General Practice setting), they can contact Emily Haycock at UWE () for more information.

In order to be considered for a HESW funded place, there needs to be a confirmed workforce need from the training organisation (which must be a provider of NHS services/contracted to provide NHS services) for the candidate to become an independent prescriber.

There are additional entry requirements set out by the General Pharmaceutical Council that applicants must meet in order to be considered for a place on the Programme; these can be found in the application documentation. Once candidates have registered their interest for a HESW funded place on the interprofessional Non-Medical Prescribing Programme, UWE will provide them with more information on the application process directly.

- The University of Bath uni-professional Pharmacist Prescribing Programme for self-funding and organisationally-funded applicants

The University of Bath will continue to offer the Pharmacist Prescribing Programme, with workshops held at the University of Bath campus, in order to cater for self-funding candidates and organisationally-funded pharmacists outside of the HESW region (including those who wish to complete an independent prescribing course as part of the University of Bath Postgraduate Diploma).

Candidates for the Pharmacist Prescribing Programme should contact Di Pullin () to register their interest. For full details on how to apply visit http://www.bath.ac.uk/study/pg/programmes/phar-pres-prog/.

The next intake of the Pharmacist Prescribing Programme at the University of Bath is planned for September 2016. The deadline for applications is 15 July 2016.

Our Postgraduate Certificate Professional Practice and Management in Architecture is the last stage in formal academic training and practical, work-based learning for architects. It's designed and structured to lay the foundation for 'life-long learning' in the architectural profession, and its primary purpose is to enable you to show competence in practice.

It stands out for its reflection of current thinking of the RIBA and the ARB, the objectives of the EU Architects' Directive, and the RIBA Core Curriculum requirements of Continuous Professional Development (CPD). CPD is available through short-course options, and further supports our excellent links with local architectural practices.

Architecture at UWE has a strong inter-disciplinary ethos and an excellent reputation in the industry. This course gives you access to the knowledge and Part-3 skills that relate directly to architectural practice, professionalism, and managing architecture's relationship with wider construction industry and society. These correspond to the requirements set out in the criteria published by the ARB/RIBA.

Course detail

This course is based in UWE Bristol's Faculty of Environment and Technology, and like other Architecture courses here, it's unique in offering a multidisciplinary environment that's geared towards the construction professions as a whole. The course team comprises qualified architects and a solicitor with a specialism in construction law, while the course content has contributions from lecturers across the department and industry specialists. This ensures the course is based on current and projected trends.

The Secondary Postgraduate Certificate in Education is a one academic year (36 week) course that trains graduates to be secondary school teachers of Mathematics. Read more
The Secondary Postgraduate Certificate in Education is a one academic year (36 week) course that trains graduates to be secondary school teachers of Mathematics.

The PGCE programme has been designed to train teachers to practice as a subject specialist teacher for the secondary age range (11-16). Trainees are assessed against the standards for Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) across the age range. Trainees will also often gain experience of the 16-18 age range, although they will not be formally assessed in this phase.

Course detail

The course is active and practical allowing trainees to develop professional competence through work undertaken in schools and in the University. Trainees work with young people, develop their expertise in their specialist subject area, share and discuss educational issues and study relevant educational research. The course is just the beginning of what we hope will be a process of continual professional development throughout a challenging and rewarding career.

This is a recently added PGCE Secondary strand at UWE, run from September 2008. Teachers completing this route will be in a very strong position to gain employment. In the current climate of under-recruitment to mathematics teaching this course will enable participants to train to teach this shortage subject as well as being able to draw upon their knowledge of a Business/Economic/Finance degree.

Structure

The course is part of the Department of Education's programme for Initial Teacher Training. Units studied are:

• Enabling Learning
• Meeting Curriculum Challenges
• Becoming a Teacher

These units are studied in both the school and the University-based parts of the course, the work on each site being complementary.

This course will prepare you for teaching mathematics across the 11-16 age range, at Key Stages 3 and 4/GCSE. It will also prepare you to teach Business Education in school to young people in the 14-19 age range, including at GCSE and A level.

Throughout the course you will need to work at developing your personal subject knowledge in mathematics, business and ICT. Trainees will also learn about how best to teach, explain, demonstrate, connect, and bring to life these subjects for pupils. During subject sessions at UWE, you will be introduced to ideas and resources for teaching, see a variety of teaching approaches and learning activities, observe and evaluate videos of lessons, be introduced to how to plan for effective learning, and spend time discussing the many issues relating to learning. You will also gain experience of the real-life community and business contexts where these subjects are applied.

Format

We recognise that embarking on a new course of study can sometimes be quite a challenging undertaking. Students have three main sources of support and information from the University during the course: firstly there is the Group Tutor in their subject area, secondly each student is allocated a Personal Tutor and thirdly any student can get support on a range of issues from the Department Student Adviser.

Placements

A substantial proportion of the PGCE course is spent in school, learning about the school environment, observing and teaching. You will gain teaching experience in two complementary school/college placements. You will be supported by a Subject Mentor and a Senior Professional Tutor.

These staff and other teachers and colleagues within the school will support you in your learning to teach, assess, and manage classes. You will have the opportunity to enhance your experiences of working with young people further during the PGCE year in UWE and through your school placements, for example by taking part in master-classes and other activities with pupils from Partnership schools, by attending educational visits, working with young people in out-of-school contexts, or by participating in cross-curricular and extra-curricular activities.

Assessment

In order to pass the course, trainees are required to pass each unit. They are assessed on a number of written assignments and also on classroom practice against the standards specified by the Secretary of State for the award of Qualified Teacher Status (QTS).

Careers / Further study

The Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) programmes now include 40 credits of assessment at Master's Level (Level M). For candidates who opt not to attempt the requisite credit at Level M, a Professional Graduate Certificate in Education will be available as an alternative award.

Key fact

An excellent first step to become a practising counsellor, and useful as a standalone course applicable to a range of roles. There are no pre-requisite formal qualifications, but you must be working in a paid or voluntary setting where counselling skills can be used.

Introduction

This course is designed for people who work in a setting that involves offering help, support, or guidance to others. People working in education, the NHS, voluntary agencies, social services, government schemes or in the private sector will find the course provides invaluable skills and knowledge.

The next step

The certificate in counselling gives you the chance to develop counselling skills rather than qualify as a professional counsellor, so it is useful for a wide range of roles and as a step towards full qualification. UWE Bristol also provides a Diploma in Professional Studies Counselling, which you can apply for when you have completed this Certificate successfully. Alternatively, if you have an undergraduate psychology degree (with Graduate Basis for Chartership with the British Psychological Society) you can go on to apply for our Professional Doctorate in Counselling Psychology.

We introduce counselling skills through student-centred and experiential learning techniques, and you get to consider a wide variety of counselling-related subjects. For example, you investigate different models of counselling and learn what it is like to be a client. You'll come to clearly understand client-counsellor contracts, develop self-awareness and learn when counselling is appropriate as well as safe and ethical use of counselling skills, and being aware of its limitations.

For up to date list of modules and course delivery please visit our website.

Careers / Further study

This qualification is invaluable to develop your counselling skills and enhance your career prospects if you're in existing employment in education, the NHS, voluntary agencies, social services, government schemes on in the private sector. It can also help those wishing to become professional counsellors to progress onto further study, and is a prerequisite to studying the Diploma level.

Our award-winning careers service helps you develop your employment potential through career coaching, a vacancy service for internships, placements, jobs, global opportunities, volunteering and community activity plus support for entrepreneurial activity, and access to employer events.

Learning and Teaching

We encourage you to be actively involved in your own learning. This means working in groups of various sizes, practising counselling skills in small groups, completing written assignments, video work and taking part in discussions.
