This module will be delivered through a series of lead lectures, tutorials and workshops. Where it is appropriate students may access specific pre-registration or learning beyond registration sessions. The module may also incorporate online learning.
The length of the programme is very much determined by individual requirements and ability to undertake clinical placement hours. However, it is recommended that the returner devote at least two shifts per week to clinical practice in order to maintain continuity and facilitate learning within the negotiated area.
The programme is a single module and comprises two components: theory and practice.
The theory element of the course is delivered over 2 days across 10 weeks. All students will be taught together for the first 9 weeks of the programme. The 10th week will be route-specific tutorials/workshops.
After the 10 weeks, the returner is eligible to commence the clinical placement part of the programme which is a minimum of 100 practice hours. Practice attendance and hours will be negotiated between the student and clinical mentor to maintain continuity and facilitate learning.
The module is assessed at Level 6 (degree level) and is worth 20 CATS points.
There will be one Returning to Practice course each year. Once started, students can take up to one academic year (45 weeks) to complete the course. They may exit once all assessments (theory and practice) have been completed. There are three exit points during the year: 2 weeks before Board 1, Board 2 or Board 3.
We welcome students with disabilities. We recognise that education is a right for all who can benefit from it and that students with disabilities have an equal right of access to higher education. Our staff also recognise that individuals with disabilities are the best source of expertise about themselves and their needs. All students with disabilities should be able to participate as far as is reasonably practical in the educational and social activities we make available. Such students should be encouraged to expect equal treatment as individuals and that they and their work will be considered solely on the basis of their quality.
