Course content

Why choose this course:

• If you're a professional in health and social care, with a teaching aspect to your role, this course is ideal for you.

• This course meets the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) standards to support learning and assessment in practice for both Practice Teacher and Nurse Teacher Status qualifications (NMC 2008).

• It is also approved by the Higher Education Academy (HEA) as meeting the UK Professional Standards Framework for teaching and supporting learning. This means you can be sure that what you learn is up to date and relevant, helping you to gain accreditation as an associate or fellow of the HEA when you graduate.

• You will get the chance to study alongside other health professionals, which will help you to develop the professional, academic and personal skills to achieve the best results in educational practice.

• You'll develop your knowledge and gain excellent teaching skills across many contexts from higher education to clinical practice, so you can have the skills you'll need to enhance your career.

About the course:

If you're keen to develop your skills and knowledge in education within your practice setting then this course will help you to be at the forefront of professional practice education. Your current workplace will be the focus of your learning, so before you can study this course, you'll need to be able to facilitate learning in your practice environment and have the full support from your employer.

You'll experience a variety of teaching methods including a mixture of traditional learning and learning using web based and electronic tools. You'll also take part in group work and reflective practice, which means you'll consider how you have developed and applied your knowledge. You'll be assessed by your peers and the group, as well as through the reflective portfolios that you develop during the course. This will allow you to improve your practice by applying what you have learnt to your own practice.

If you study all modules on this course, then you'll meet the requirements for Nurse Teacher Status (Nursing and Midwifery Council, 2008), but if you study just the first two modules then you'll gain Practice Teacher Status. Practice Teacher Status is a requirement for health visitor and school nurse mentors. It's advisable for a range of other health professional practice learning related roles, such as clinical facilitator, practice educator and skills trainer.
