During the course of this programme, you will develop your knowledge and understanding of a range of relevant theoretical concepts, practice and evidenced based knowledge that can be applied to real work contexts and complex issues. You will study ethical principles, values and codes of practice and explore how these can be applied to your own practice. You will also explore the influence of current policy, organisational context, and workplace priorities on practice development. You will also look into relevant methodologies and approaches for developing your own practice and/or that of others in health, social care and education settings.
On completion of this programme, you will be able to effectively engage, network and communicate with relevant stakeholders and academic audiences, and take initiative and leadership for practice development in your own setting or work context (within limits of role). You will understand how to evaluate practice or identified issues and apply appropriate problem solving techniques, inquiry and action planning. You will have the ability to systematically design, undertake and manage a work-based project that has the potential to improve your own practice and/or that of others. Finally, you will learn to critically reflect and evaluate your own practice and systematically plan professional development.
