This part-time course is for qualified health and social care professionals who have already studied to degree level and wish to expand their sphere of practice to include new elements within their professional role. They must also be engaged in practice for normally a minimum of 20 hours per week. It is designed to develop the knowledge and understanding of health and social care professionals working to, or aspiring to be, advanced practitioners.
