About the Course
Health & Social Care Prezi
If you work in community care, with vulnerable adults or other service users, their families and carers, this course can help you take the next step.
This course is set in the context of the Government’s developing policy in relation to community care practice. It’s designed to enable experienced community care practitioners from a variety of professions to develop their theoretical and practical skills.
It responds directly to the issues explored in the Green Paper ‘Independence, Well–Being and Choice’ and the White Paper ‘Our Health, Our Care, Our Say’, and the ‘Transforming Social Care’ agenda.
Developed in partnership with employers, service users and carers and designed to be delivered alongside social workers working towards the General Social Care Council’s PQ Specialist Award in Social Work with Adults, this part–time programme is ideal for students currently in appropriate employment. Assessment of practice in the workplace is a central feature of the award and it is delivered by way of short intensive study blocks.
Taught modules explore the evidence base of contemporary community care practice, developments in law and social policy. This encourages the development of skills in direct work with service users and carers in a multi-agency, multi-disciplinary context, and the supervision and development of professional staff.
