This work-based/work-focused course provides you with the opportunity to undertake Continuing Professional Development (CPD) based in the work environment. You will identify, in conjunction with your employer and the City, a specific project that will facilitate and enable you to develop specific skills, knowledge and understanding in relation to an identified area of your professional practice.
In undertaking this work-based course you will be able to focus on the enhancement of one aspect of practice relevant to your role and to achieve, through the undertaking of the project, specific, self-defined learning objectives.
Who is it for?
This course would benefit managers, clinicians and professional services staff wanting to develop their reflective skills and meet their personal learning objectives. As the course is predominantly student-led, it would suit those who prefer self-directed, personal study and activities, rather than university-based teaching and learning activities.
Six (6) hours of face-to-face facilitation and group discussion, delivered over three 2-hour sessions on a Thursday afternoon over three months. There are an additional 10 hours of supervision and support with your project with the course team.
