Advanced Practice in the Human Services
Overview of the programme
This is an innovative programme based around the work of Professor Neil Thompson, a highly respected international thought leader who writes, educates and advises on a wide range of social well-being issues. As such this programme enables practitioners in social work, social care, youth and community work, probation studies, counselling and associated areas of professional practice to study online with Professor Neil Thompson, a leading author in the field.
The programme focus is on developing advanced practice – that is, enabling practitioners to take their knowledge, skills and values to an advanced level in order to maximise (i) their effectiveness as professionals; and (ii) their career opportunities.
The programme blends well-established wisdom with cutting-edge ideas, with a clear focus on how those ideas can be used in practice. Online discussion forums enable students to engage with Professor Thompson, other tutors and fellow students.
The multidisciplinary nature of the programme enables students to not only appreciate the perspectives of other professional groups, but also to learn from those perspectives by being exposed to a wide range of insights.
This course is delivered part-time and is delivered 100% online to allow flexibility for study. 2016/17 intake commences in January (September intake thereafter).
