Practitioners in health, social care and diverse practice settings have an increasing educational role. The module is designed to enhance the skills necessary to enable you as a health care professional to develop your role as an educator in the work-based setting. It will focus on your educational role with learners, including students, colleagues, service users, families / carers, interprofessional teams, and the public.

In addition, successful completion of this module will provide accreditation with Advance HE (Associate Fellow descriptors, D1).

This module aims to:

  • Prepare you for educational roles in practice with students from HEI’s, colleagues, service users and other learners in your practice setting.
  • Promote awareness, analysis, and evaluation of different models of education in the practice setting.
  • Disseminate good practice in the facilitation, assessment, and evaluation of learning in the practice setting.
  • Foster interprofessional learning and collaboration.
