  1. INTRODUCTION


The aim of this unit is to encourage learners to develop as reflective practitioners by applying their understanding and skills to their own health and social care setting.

This unit provides learners with an opportunity to develop as reflective practitioners. A minimum of 200 hours of work experience will be completed in order to achieve the unit. This practice will provide the basis of evidence for assessment of the unit. Learners’ practice, observations and learning in the workplace will be supplemented with wider understanding and knowledge from all parts of the course. Evidence of learning will be presented through a portfolio that reflects the learner’s ability as a reflective practitioner. Planning, monitoring and revision of personal development plans would be appropriate evidence for achieving personal targets and learning outcomes. Evidence from workplace settings should be validated and authenticated by appropriately qualified expert witnesses. It is essential that learners and assessors respect the confidentiality of information from the workplace at all times.

Assessment:

The module will be assessed meeting all the LO as specified by the awarding body, Pearson.

Please read the instructions carefully while addressing the assessment criteria specified. 

Contribution: of the module 100%

Outline Details:     Details enclosed in the assignment brief.

 

Teaching and Learning Activities   

The module tutor(s) will aim to combine lectures with tutorial activities. This environment will provide opportunities for the student to understand the course material through case study and text and to apply it in a practical way. The intent is to facilitate interactive class activities, and discussion about the significant role of research in a global and local business environment.

 

2.3       Teaching Ethos

The college’s approach towards teaching and learning is simple and effective. The main aim of UKCBC is to assist learners in maximising their potential by ensuring that they are taught clearly and effectively. This will enable students to engage in the learning environment and promote success in both their academic studies and subsequent career.

 

2.3.1 Methods of Delivery:

LECTURES:

These will be developed around the key concepts as mentioned in the indicative course content and will use a range of live examples and cases from health and social care practice to demonstrate the application of theoretical concepts. This method is primarily used to identify and explain key aspects of the subject so that learners can utilise their private study time more effectively.

 

SEMINARS:

These are in addition to the lectures. The seminars are designed to give learners the opportunity to test their understanding of the material covered in the lectures and private study with the help of reference books. This methodology usually carries a set of questions identified in advance. Seminars are interactive sessions led by the learners. This method of study gives the learner an excellent opportunity to clarify any points of difficulty with the tutor and simultaneously develop their oral communication skills.

 

CASE STUDIES:

An important learning methodology is the extensive use of case studies. They enable learners to apply the concepts that they learn in their subjects. The learners have to study the case, analyse the facts presented and arrive at conclusions and recommendations. This assists in the assessment of the learner’s ability to apply to the real world the tools and techniques of analysis which they have learnt. The case study serves as a supplement to the theoretical knowledge imparted through the course work.

 

Plagiarism:

Any act of plagiarism will be seriously dealt with according to the colleges and awarding bodies’ regulations. In this context the definition and scope of plagiarism are presented below:

Plagiarism is presenting someone’s work as your own. It includes copying information directly from the web or books without referencing the material; submitting joint coursework as an individual effort; copying another student’s coursework; stealing coursework form another student and submitting it as your own work. Suspected plagiarism will be investigated and if found to have occurred will be dealt with according to the college procedure. (For further details please refer to the plagiarism policy and the student code of conduct.)

Purpose of this assignment

 

This unit requires learners to develop as reflective practitioners.

 

●     Reflection on learning: Reflection is revisiting an experience after the event in order to extract the principles and effectively ‘bank’ these for future use. This should be directed to promote learning, personal and professional development, and improvement of practice. The reflection must answer four questions relating to a learning experience: What did I learn? What do I still need to learn?  What resources did I use for further learning? What further learning was achieved?

 

●     Work placement: A minimum of 200 hours of relevant work experience should be completed which should provide opportunity for collection of evidences of achievement of learning outcomes. Verified evidence of 200 hours of time spent in work experience should be included within the personal development portfolio.

 

●     Work-place mentors should ensure that:

(a)    learner experience in practice settings is appropriate in addressing all the learning outcomes and

assessment criteria

(b) learner is supported through tutorials and meetings to devise appropriate development plans

(c) learner is provided with guidance about presenting evidence so that it effectively reflects their abilities as

a developing health care practitioner.

 

●     Portfolio: Evidence of learning are to be presented through a portfolio that reflects the learner’s ability as a reflective practitioner.

Learners will present a portfolio of evidence to demonstrate their developing skills, knowledge and abilities as individuals and developing care workers. Basically, the portfolio should contain ‘evidence’ and ‘the reflection’ of the practitioner.

●     Evidences of achievement of learning outcomes can be anything from a mentor/tutor rating to evidence of visiting a patient’s home which a learner thinks has helped her or him achieve the learning outcome. 

 

(a)    The following could be included: written reports, evaluations of performances (supervisor’s report, check lists, patients’ evaluations), records of practical procedures, expert witness testimony, observation records, assignments, descriptive reports and artefacts etc.

 

(b)   PDP:  Planning, monitoring and revision of personal development plans would be appropriate evidence for achieving personal targets and learning outcomes.

 

(c) Evidence from workplace settings should be validated and authenticated by appropriately qualified expert witnesses in the form of work-place mentors.

 

It is essential that learners respect the confidentiality of information from the workplace at all times.

 
Scenario

 

You have recently undertaken a new role within the health & social care sector and will be required to show your knowledge and understanding of major principles & practices associated with health & social care and provide evidence of how it relates to your own professional practice. Additionally, you are required to undertake activities to assess your current skills and abilities and prepare, implement and monitor a plan for your development.

 
Task 1 (LO 1: AC 1.1, 1.2, 1.3 and M1, M2, M3, D2) - (approx. 300-400 words for each assessment criteria)

 

Write a personal statement to demonstrate how personal values and principles influence your contributions to work in a health & social care setting, ensuring that you include the following:

 

a)      A comparison of your personal values and principles with the principles of support for working in your work place

 

b)      An assessment of how personal culture and experience influence your role in supporting clients and colleagues in your work place.

 

c)      Discuss how new developments and changes to your personal values can impact on your work

Get Assignment help for PPD

You must also provide some written evidence for this task within your assignment portfolio, i.e. need to choose between writing a reflective account or a personal statement for each of the assessment criteria.
