Work Based Learning: Using and Disseminating Evidence into Practice

This course will enable you to develop the knowledge and skills that could improve the care experience of service users.

It was developed by Greater Manchester West (GMW) NHS Mental Health Foundation Trust and is currently only open to staff at the trust. It is delivered in partnership with GMW at their site.

The Work Based Project module is designed to meet GMW strategic objectives and be directly relevant to your practice area. The Finding and Disseminating Evidence module will prepare you to write on the work-based learning project, or a project you have previously undertaken.

Entry requirements

In addition, you should currently be engaged in paid and/or voluntary work and have written agreement from your employer to undertake this framework.

We also welcome applications from students who may not have formal/traditional entry criteria, but who have relevant experience or the ability to pursue the course successfully.
