Code: BH/19/1152 Adults CPD Module: Social Work in Multidisciplinary Settings

To express and interest in this module please 'request a place' by the 31st July 2019 (now extended)

This module will explore social work practice in private, voluntary, independent or health-based settings working with complex issues such as mental health, substance misuse and/or homelessness, either with children and young people, or with adults. Students will consider issues of social work professional identity, as well as the skills and knowledge that social workers use in these settings and the value bases applicable to such work. The module will also enable students to update their knowledge regarding the legal and policy framework and implications for their practice.

The module is delivered over 5 days using a range of methods including presentations, structured discussions and exercises designed to draw on participants practice and personal experience.  Small groups of students will be encouraged to share their perspectives, critique the concepts which are presented to them and apply learning to their own specialist social work context.

The aim is for students to:

  • Explore what it means to be a qualified social worker practicing in either a healthcare setting, or in a non-statutory agency, as part of a multidisciplinary team. 
  • Enable students to critically reflect upon the application of social work theory, knowledge, values and skills to practice in their setting.
  • Update students’ knowledge and critical understanding of relevant law and policy, including safeguarding.

Code: BH/19/1038 Children's CPD Module - Observing, Communicating & Engaging with Children & Young People

To apply for this module please register your Expression of Interest before the 17th May 2019.

This 30 Masters credit level module for social workers and other professionals who need to deepen their capabilities for understanding, engaging and communicating with children and young people in complex, contested and sensitive situations.

You must be in a role where you are regularly engaging and communicating directly with children and young people as the assignment requires reflection on, and evidence from, actual practice. Applicants may have previously undertaken child observation exercises in their qualifying training, but this module offers a much more in-depth and critical experience designed
to underpin specialist practice.

Please note - there is a requirement to observe a child not known to you on six occasions as part of this module. You need to factor this in to your planning and discuss with your manager before applying.

Code: BH/20/0063 Children's CPD Module - Professional Learning Review / Professional Learning Review: Extended

To apply for this module please register your Expression of Interest before the 17th May 2019.

A 15 or 30 credit Masters level module for those wanting to bring prior learning and experience into a CPD award pathway.

The module comprises an individually tailored delivery of tutorials and, dependent on participant numbers, group tutorial sessions. These will assist the candidate to review previous learning against current learning outcomes, plan work and critically reflect on past and current practice in relation to contemporary reading and research relevant to role and award pathway.

The module would particularly suit those practitioners who gained practice teaching qualifications under a previous award structure and who now want to show how they have maintained currency and developed expertise and to bring those awards and credits into an existing framework. It may also be used as a stand-alone module providing an opportunity for candidates to bring previous study (for example the Practice Teacher’s Award) up to date, and refresh skills and knowledge.

NOTE: This module is primarily self study. Teaching will focus on the use of relevant knowledge and research for role (mapped against PCF) and the development of professional leadership in the role.
