This 20 credit module supports students’ professional development as advanced practitioners in relation to the Professional Capabilities Framework (PCF) descriptions of the capabilities required of ‘Experienced Social Worker’. 

The module offers students the opportunity to review their practice against the guidance of the nine domains of the PCF in relation to their practice as either Advanced practitioners, or educators, or managers.

Module learning is aimed at supporting students in the development of advanced reflective and critically analytic skills and in planning career development.

This module uses independent or personalised learning. Students are supported and guided in their study by regular individual or group tutorials (depending on the number of students following the module). In this forum critical analysis and reflection is encouraged. It enables students individually and/ or collaboratively to develop further/ review their knowledge base and review their practice and professional development. Key themes in tutorials are the concepts of professionalism and professional leadership in the student’s area of practice.

Tutorial learning is supplemented by self-directed study, which is in terms of developing and refreshing practice knowledge and in terms of further critical reflection and analysis of practice.  

Assessment will be through a 3000 word Critical and Reflective Analysis and Evaluation of Own Practice.

This module can be taken as part of a PGDip, MSc or as a stand alone module. Please see further details in the application information document attached to this course.
