Overview


This Foundation Degree is balanced between theory and practice and is taught by an experienced team with backgrounds in nursing and social care.

Mental health and emotional wellbeing are increasingly recognised as being of vital importance to overall patient health, so this Foundation Degree has been designed in partnership with key organisations, including the NHS, to provide those who aspire to be Assistant Practitioners with the skills and knowledge required to help those in need of specialist support.

This course is mapped to a Higher Apprenticeship standard and is one of the first in the region to address the shortage of mental health skills in health and social care.

The classroom elements of the course include studies in anatomy and physiology, complex conditions and studies in transferable academic areas such as sociology and communication. Teaching on this programme is designed to be diverse to meet the range of differing working environments and taught by NMC registered staff in both the classroom and simulation facilities.

Course detail

As well as the training in topics related to mental health, the classroom elements of the course also include studies in physiology, anatomy, disease and complex conditions and studies in transferable academic areas such as sociology and communication.

 

The course is taught by our expert and experienced lecturers in the University Centre in our Knightstone Campus, with studies also occasionally taking place in the new Health and Active Living Centre at Loxton Campus. You will also be able to take advantage of everything on offer in our multimillion pound redevelopment of the 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 Nicola North or UCW’s HEART student services team. It would also be great to meet you and show you around at our next Open Day.
