1.0year

Full-time | 2022

Students will study a range of subjects which will provide the basis for a future career in areas relevant to health and social care, including nursing and social work. The course provides flexibility, with a number of career choice options available.

Assessment methods

Teaching and learning is delivered through seminars, group work, practical experience and lectures, e-learning support, work placements and tutorials – individual and group. Through group working with peers you are given the opportunity to engage in constructive and developmental discussion with each other within an open, trusting, diverse, inclusive and non-discriminatory environment. The academic team seek to empower you to create respectful alliances within the diverse student group and enable safe critical evaluation of cultural and social difference. It is designed therefore to embed transferable skills and to empower your progressive increase in autonomy and engagement with learning, knowledge, skills and confidence.
You will be assessed in a number of ways which have been designed to support your learning and to monitor your progressive achievement. As you move through the course and develop professionally you can expect to become increasingly reflective in your approach to study and to work-based learning. The combination of coursework, essays, presentations, e-portfolios, case studies, reports and action plans enable you to develop transferable skills for working as community development, social welfare, social policy and health sector employees. The assessments reflect the communication expected of graduates in this field and will develop your critical evaluation skills.
