Delivery of this module will be online due to government-issued guidelines during the Covid-19 pandemic and may be made available face-to-face subject to Public Health England recommendations.

Course overview

It is recognised that learning can take place in a variety of settings. Work based learning is encouraged as part of government policy in making learning more relevant to the work place and to the work that people carry out within that environment.

Healthcare professionals carry out a range of work related tasks which could be used as the basis for further learning whilst at the same time gaining academic credit.

The flexibility of this work based learning approach will enable you to undertake study that will lead to a recognised credit bearing award but without the need to attend formal lectures within the university.

The work that you undertake as part of this module will be embedded within your clinical practice. Examples of such work include the development of treatment/imaging techniques, new policy procedure development. You will be allocated an academic supervisor from within the Division of Applied Biology, Diagnostic and Therapeutic Sciences (Radiography) in order to provide you with support and guidance throughout the duration of the module.

The module is designed to enable you to undertake scholarly activity within a specified work related area. Your learning will focus on the enhancement of practice relevant to your role.
