Learning, Teaching and Assessment (LTA) Approach:
Learning & teaching methods including their alignment to LOs
Independent learning is used to achieve LO 6. In placement, students will continue to develop their practice skills from their first practice and will continue to require teaching strategies, methods and support which reflect their 'novice-like' role, especially from their mentor (LOs 1-6). LO3 will be achieved by completing specific module outcomes and learning environment based activities related to mental health and well being.. For LO5 students are required to complete online HAI units 3&4.
This degree of teacher and mentor support is an acknowledged aspect of andragogical theory and will involve an increased supporting role from mentors. The practice assessment is outcomes based and will be achieved with guidance and information from academic staff and practice-based mentors. Students will receive a year long practice placement booklet which contains their clinical skills passport for their two year one placements.
Learning outcome 2 & 5 will be met through working in partnership with other agencies including health and social care professionals and wider community and family networks.
As reflection is a major component of professional practice, continued participation in group reflection whilst in clinical placement will provide a supportive base upon which to develop effective reflection skills and attitudes (affective aspects of LOs 1- 6).
The minimum practice hours are normally 375

Embedding of employability/PDP/scholarship skills
The students will continue to develop skills of communication, time management, negotiation, professional attitudes and values (LOs 1- 6). The students will be based in practice as part of a nursing team and will begin to consider multidisciplinary team (MDT) working.
