Foundation in Professional Practice PG Cert/BSc (Hons)


Course Description

The modules undertaken as part of the Postgraduate Certificate route will be studied at a higher level than those on the BSc route to reflect the difference in learning between the two routes.

Postgraduate Certificate route:
Professional Efficacy (30 credits) focuses upon critical reflection and allows you to explore your individual skills, knowledge and attitudes

Dimensions of Professional Practice (30 credits) requires you to apply what you have learnt in Professional Efficacy to your own work setting by identifying a change in practice, and thinking about one area of focus. It is expected that you will make the change in your work area, through negotiation with your preceptor, manager and academic staff

BSc route:
The Effective Practitioner (30 credits) encourages you to think about yourself, where you are at and where you would like to be in the future

Perspectives of Professional Practice (30 credits) requires you to apply your learning to your own work setting by identifying a change in practice, and thinking about one area of focus. You are expected to write a project plan with a view to introducing that change in your work setting.

Teaching and assessment
You will be assigned an academic e-facilitator to provide academic support and assistance throughout the course. You will be informed at the beginning of each module when your e-facilitator will be available for online support.

In addition to this, you will need to have arranged a work-based preceptor, who will provide the expertise to guide you through your work-based learning activities and assist you with your portfolio development.

A variety of course assessment strategies are used including a reflective essay, a project and the development of a professional portfolio. You have the opportunity to interact with other students and DMU academic staff through a variety of online resources.

The course has been developed alongside Leicester Partnership Trust and this established relationship ensures that the course provision is relevant to current working practices, meaning that you are learning the most recent initiatives from the healthcare sector.

The course has also been created to ensure that the Flying Start core principles are met, and is linked with the KSF, both of which enhance your professional development throughout the duration of your study.
