Occupational Therapy (Pre-Registration)

Teaching & Learning

Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic we are currently unable to advise on the mode of teaching for September 2021, however we will keep you updated and provide more information as soon as we can. We continue to follow government guidance and your teaching and learning will reflect the restrictions in place at the time of delivery. We currently anticipate that you may experience a blended approach – this is a mix of face-to-face, on campus and online teaching and learning. You can keep up to date with teaching and learning at Leeds Beckett via our Covid-19 website. Updated course specifications will be available in August 2021. In the meantime, our existing course specifications are available.

What you'll learn

Using scenarios/case studies, you'll understand how occupations are defined and classified and how they influence identity across the lifespan. This module emphasises the importance of occupation for health and wellbeing and draws upon related subjects such as occupational science, human anatomy, sociology and psychology.
Extend your depth and breadth of knowledge of research and develop a research proposal within the scope of occupational therapy.
Develop skills to understand occupational narratives and dysfunction, and to enable occupational potential, identity and wellness. You'll study a variety of case studies which consider occupational therapy with diverse populations and across the spectrum of health and social care settings.
Conduct an ethical, independent research project and disseminate your findings in the form of a journal article and a research poster. You'll defend your research process, findings and application to occupational therapy practice through a viva voce.
Observe and practice occupational therapy and reflect on your performance during this six-week practice placement module. You'll consider how theory is applied in practice, including how to engage with service users, apply the occupational therapy process and understand the importance of clinical reasoning and multidisciplinary working.
Critically appraise and apply a range of evidence that informs the quality, safety, timing, effectiveness and outcomes of occupational therapy practice. Using diverse real-life case studies, you'll understand the personal, socio-economic, cultural, environment and spiritual circumstances that influence human occupation.
During this six-week practice placement, you'll practice occupational therapy, including assessments and interventions and you'll develop your own clinical reasoning and make decisions about service users. You'll also be encouraged to engage in self-reflection and integrate theory into practice.
Critically understand the role of occupational therapy in enabling and campaigning for occupational justice. You'll analyse global and local contexts, including a synthesis of legislation and policy, which impact on the health and occupational engagement of humans.
Establish a critical understanding of theories of leadership, business and enterprise in health and social care services. You'll identify emerging markets in occupational therapy and be able to explain the potential for occupational therapy services, demonstrating your skills in innovation and entrepreneurship.
During this six-week practice placement, you'll apply an occupational perspective to a setting and client group, including an assessment of health and occupational needs. You'll then implement a sustainable project to address these needs.
Engage in critical dialogue about professional reasoning in complex and novel situations to inform risk evaluation, and prioritisation and delegation of workload and resources. You'll develop and maintain professional relationships that facilitate team working and service improvement for effective and optimal service user outcomes.
