The Foundations of Advanced Practice are underpinned by the Core Competency Framework for Advanced Practice. The core competencies are set out in four domains: 1.Managing self and others; 2. Knowledge; 3. Intervention; 4. Client management. Collectively these domains will ensure students develop not only advanced skills but the requisite knowledge and abilities required of practitioners working in challenging, highly responsible and autonomous roles. In order to ensure a structured approach to learning and ongoing development together with demonstrating achievement of these competencies, FAP 1,2,3,4 has been developed to accommodate each domain individually.
This module reflects Domain 1: Managing self and others; whereby the aim is to develop the studentsí personal insight, knowledge, and understanding of the skills and competencies they require to fulfil their Advanced Practice role within their organisation. It will enable the student to identify their skills and competencies as a practitioner and map these against the new skills and competencies required for their new role. They will learn techniques to create a vision for their future, how to set and achieve their goals, to enable them to achieve their full personal and professional potential within the work place
The syllabus is flexible and shaped by students needs with innovative approaches of delivery and will include intensive self assessment, reflective practice, mapping of personal skills and competencies, personal development planning (PDP), and portfolio building
The module will embrace a participative approach to learning and encourage personal reflection, drawing on the individualís experiences of developing their AP role within the workplace.The teaching will include a personal development programme for the Advanced Practice role and will be facilitated and personalised to the learning for each student. This will be complemented by continuing personal reflection. Students will have individual tutorials with the work based learning facilitators to discuss the potential for their future role and their learning needs. Additional lectures will explore self assessment and self analysis.
Learning and teaching will involve a mixture of methods including lecture, individual and group exercises and discussion, self directed study, DVD triggers, case studies, experiential learning and activity-based learning. Associate lecturers/guest speakers will be invited to provide a perspective from their specialist sector .
Formative assesment will be undertaken part way through the module by the submission of a plan of their proposed self assessment, max 500 words. Summative assessment will be submitted at the end of the module in the form of a 1000 word assignment detailing a critical reflection of personal development based on their self analysis.
