Managing learners in practice course
If you are directly responsible for supporting health and care professional learners from Plymouth University in practice you are invited to register your interest for our forthcoming course:
Managing learners in practice: inter-professional training for placement supervisors
This foundation course has been developed in partnership between Social Work and Clinical Psychology at Plymouth University; and is available to all who supervise health and care professional learners in practice for Plymouth University. It is designed to prepare supervisors of social work or clinical psychology learners (and very relevant for other disciplines too) and is approved by the British Psychological Society Learning Centre.
WHAT TO EXPECT
You can expect to consolidate and develop existing skills and knowledge, and develop critical and reflective skills in promoting adult learning in practice to support practice learning for safe, effective and compassionate practice. The course keeps service users and carers interests at the heart of the learning experience.
You will learn how to provide practice based learning that is:
restorative: developing effective and supportive relationships with learners
formative: enabling educative and evaluative aspects of supervision
normative: understanding and critiquing service and professional contexts and policies for learning
transformative: promoting social justice and inclusivity
You must be directly responsible for supporting a learner from Plymouth University in a practice setting in order to be allocated a place on the course. This course meets Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) requirements for preparing supervisors in providing practice placements.
