Course detail

You will develop your professional practice through work-based learning, with a particular focus on the values and behaviours expected of assistant practitioners, which include compassion and commitment.

 

The classroom elements of the course cover a broad range of topics to reflect the varied nature of the assistant practitioner role, including core skills in communication and teamwork and the higher academic research and writing skills you will need if you aspire to further study.

The course is taught in the  University Centre in our Knightstone Campus and sessions occasionally also take place in our new Health and Active Living Skills Centre at Loxton Campus. You will also be able to take advantage of the new teaching and learning facilities at our University Centre in the redeveloped Winter Gardens on Weston seafront.

As a Higher Apprenticeship, this course involves assessment by work-based mentors, so you must be employed in a health or social care setting and also have access to such a mentor before applying. UCW employs a specialist facilitator to guide students and employers on workplace practices. Please read the workplace suitability guidance to find out more.

If you have any questions, please get in touch with the course leader Louise Lynn or UCW’s HEART student services team. It would also be great to meet you and show you around at our next Open Day.
