The aim of this module is to develop the students’ 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 they identify that they will require 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. In addition the module will enable the student to define the scope and boundaries of their Advanced Practice role in the context of their developing and changing organisation with opportunities to consolidate clinical examination skills, theory and practice. A personalised portfolio will evidence the students’ development highlighting requisite knowledge and abilities required of practitioners working in challenging , highly responsible and autonomous roles.
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 and personal development planning (PDP), portfolio building and goal setting.
The module will embrace a participative approach to learning and encourage personal reflection, drawing on individuals’ experiences of developing their AP role within the workplace. 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, policy and organisational 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 action learning and activity-based learning. Associate lecturers/guest speakers may be invited to provide a perspective from their specialist sector and relevant visits or activities outside of the university may be undertaken to help students develop personal insight. This will be complemented by continuing personal reflection throughout using SWOT and similar self analysis tools. Formative assessment will take the form of a draft of the portfolio content submitted and returned with feedback mid semester. Summative assessment will be a completed portfolio of evidence for competence reflecting the students own learning, professional and personal development..
