This award is aimed at students working in a wide variety of health, social and community care settings either in paid employment or voluntary work. It explores two fundamental areas of practice, person-centred approaches to care and value-based practice. The aim of the award is to enable people to work in a respectful and sensitive manner with the different values and perspectives present in practice (Woodbridge and Fulford, 2004 p7). This award provides opportunities for students to discuss and explore their experiences and, by working with fellow students, to consider ways in which practice can be improved.
What you study
Learning will be facilitated by examining the concepts of facilitating care in a person centred way with individuals using a value-based framework. You will be encouraged to explore your own practice experiences and to work in groups with fellow students to enrich their learning. Material will be placed on e-learning@tees to facilitate and enhance learning. You will be required to participate in activities and pre-reading materials on e-learning@tees. You will examine the concept of value based practice using a person-centred approach relevant to their field of practice and experience of facilitating care which is informed by key principles of 'The Ten Essential Shared Capabilities for Mental Health and Valuing People Strategy' documents for Learning Disabilities.
Where you study
Students will attend Teesside University main campus for the delivery of this award over a 15-week period.
How you learn and are assessed
You will be assessed summatively and this assessment will be a written 4,000-word assignment normally in week 15 of the award.
