Vocational Rehabilitation

Vocational Rehabilitation is the process used to help individuals who, following an illness, injury or change in capacity require help to access, maintain or return to employment; this programme has been specifically developed to respond to new government initiatives to encourage people with a physical and/or psychosocial illness, disease or disability back into the workplace as well as addressing the drive for better working environments; the postgraduate certificate aims to facilitate both qualified health and social care staff and other experienced individuals to develop their professional knowledge and expertise in order to work more effectively with people wanting to return to a fulfilling work life; delivered at Master's level, students develop a critical awareness of current theory and practice and the ability to analyse, synthesise and solve complex problems.
