Learning, Teaching and Assessment (LTA) Approach:
Learning & teaching methods including their alignment to Los
This learning opportunity addresses the need for education that is personally and professionally useful, by forging strong links between theory and practice and creating a valued relationship between the student, the personal development tutor, the PEF (where appropriate) and the mentor. The main learning strategy is the embedding of reflective nursing practice through learning from reflection on meaningful professional practice experiences (LO 4 & 6). At the onset of the module, the development of the OAR and competency book will be addressed during prep for practice with students, the PEF and mentors (LO4 & 6). Opportunities will be provided for students to engage in reflective discussions in class, which are peer facilitated.The student will become increasingly independent in both their learning and in the development of skills in using technology, information retrieval and research to inform best practice (LO’s 1-6). When leading and co-ordinating a nursing team, students will work in partnership with service users, their families and other professionals to ensure a person centred approach is maintained (LO’s 1-5).

Embedding of employability/PDP/scholarship skills
Employability skills such as team working, leadership, time management, communication, reflection, evidence based practice and record keeping/documentation will be enhanced. As part of their portfolio of evidence, students will reflect on their learning over the 3 year programme and develop a clear action plan for continual professional development post registration.
