If you are looking to enhance your occupational therapy practice, at the University of Brighton we have opportunities for you. Our occupational therapy courses are part of the University’s Graduate Programme in Health and Social Sciences. The programme allows you to sign up for one module at a time and build your qualification as you go, from Postgraduate Certificate to Masters degree. It also gives you access to a range of interdisciplinary modules across a broad selection of health and social science subjects. Modules have been designed to make it easier to learn whilst learning, including online modules, which allow you to study at times when it is convenient for you.
- Health Professional as an Educator Module.
Duration and mode: 5 days (4 days in sept and 1 day in December 2016)
Practitioners in many realms of health, social care and diverse practice settings have an increasing role to play in the education of students from Higher Education Institutions, service users, newly qualified staff, support workers, other professions and members of the public. The module is designed to enhance the skills necessary to enable professionals to develop their role as an educator in the work-based setting. The module will focus on professionals’ educational role with any learner, including students, staff, service users, families / carers, interprofessional teams, and the public. Successful completion of this module will provides accreditation with the College of Occupational Therapists (Accredited Practice Placement Educator – APPLE).
