Individual students will agree a topic area and negotiate a learning contract specifying the aims and learning outcomes with an academic supervisor. The learning contract will culminate in the submission of evidence that demonstrates the achievement of the student’s stated learning outcomes. Evidence may include: literature review, implementation and evaluation of practice guidelines/protocols, production of education or training materials, audio, IT or multimedia materials relevant to practice. Student’s will submit an account incorporated within the evidence, justifying the chosen subject, and reflecting on the key learning that took place and its application to practice.
