Aims/Description: Students will explore in greater depth a number of key theories for practice intervention, which will equip them with some core skills for practice. The work undertaken on this module will link to work already undertaken on their first practice placement and will be carried forward in their final placement, offering the opportunity to put some of the skills into practice and to develop a critical awareness of their situational applicability and a balanced view of their advantages and disadvantages in the practice context. Some opportunity to explore specialist pathways will be offered. The module contributes 9 skills development days, as set out in the new national curriculum proposals, designed to further enhance student learning on more specialist skills.
