Students may select from other units available in the scheme to identify a route to award.

This pathway will normally be of interest to therapeutic radiographers operating in clinical environments in which service redesign and skill mix practices are underway. Other disciplinary groups are not excluded, although a fundamental requirement for effective participation will be the ability to access suitable clinical support. The flexibility of the framework and methods of delivery will permit practitioners within a wide geographical range to enrol.
We aim to provide a high degree of flexibility, allied to responsiveness to the local service need. You will be able to pursue your own developmental needs in the context of service requirements and to pursue requirements for advanced and consultant practice aligned with the Knowledge and Skills Framework.
You can use the programme in the following ways: – Register for a specified award and agree at entry all of the units to be undertaken – Register for a PgCert and later opt to move on to a PgDip or MSc – Undertake a variety of units as stand alone courses and build this over time into an award.
A major feature of this programme is the option for you to pursue specific knowledge and skills development in your area of practice through the use of work-based learning.
Requirements in respect of Continuing Professional Development (CPD), linked to professional regulation and Knowledge Skills Framework (KSF) requirements, means that flexible and responsive education and training provision is increasingly important to practitioners and their managers. This programme will assist in developing your career options as a practitioner, or into specialist, advanced and consultant practice, research or management areas.
