Social Care, Health and Public and Community (Professional Practice)

This course is a flexible, practice-based qualification for professionals working across a wide range of public and community services in health, social care and associated sectors. It has been developed especially to allow students to continue working and integrate professional expertise with academic learning. The course length is variable, although it is generally completed within 18 months. The course enables students to customise their own study, award title and work-based projects. Where appropriate, this can be done in partnership with an employer in support of their organisational objectives.

Entry requirements

Applicants will need to be engaged in paid (or unpaid) work and/or professional practice prior to and during their proposed course of study. This is because your work/professional practice will become the subject of your studies. Typically, applicants will have an undergraduate degree or similar, however experienced practitioners without formal qualifications may be considered. Applicants are encouraged to discuss course options with a member of the School of Health & Social Sciences Work Based Learning team. If you have undertaken previous certificated learning, we can advise you as to whether any academic credits could be recognised in your course from prior learning at work as well as other existing professional achievements.
