This innovative course will offer you the opportunity to develop the key knowledge, skills and experience required for working in health and social care and specifically with people who have learning disabilities. You will study a number of related topics including sociology, psychology, social policy, law and ethics, risk and abuse, health promotion and human growth and development, which are applicable to working with people with learning disabilities and their families and communities. Placements represent a fundamental aspect of the course and you will gain valuable insight and experience of supporting people in the real world by working alongside qualified nurses and social workers in a diverse range of locations. When you qualify, you will be able to register as a qualified nurse (learning disability) with the Nursing and Midwifery Council and to the Health Care Professions Council as a social worker.
Your first year will give you a strong background understanding of the subject through modules such as Foundations of Nursing and Social Work. You will also begin your placement experience. During your second year modules such as Health and Wellbeing Across the Lifespan will help you develop decision making skills for working with people with learning disabilities. You will continue your placement experience and begin to link the theory you have learnt to your practice. Final year modules such as Evidence Based Practice in Learning Disabilities will help you develop skills to be able to analyse research data and consider the implications for professional practice both in the UK and internationally. You will demonstrate these skills in your placement experience which will enable you to practice statutory work under the guidance of NMC and HCPC registered practitioners. There is also potential for an elective placement overseas.
