Course Introduction

The programme is aimed at practitioners holding registration with a professional body, who wish to become advanced clinical practitioners and who have been identified as having the capability and potential to work at this level. It is intended that the programme will provide opportunities for career progression through promotion and/or service recognition schemes to that of employment in the role of advanced clinical practitioner.

Our assessment strategy provides a range of methods that include presentations, essays, examinations, and group work which are designed to demonstrate the students' continuing professional development towards advanced clinical practitioner status in their field. On completion of this programme, you will be equipped with the necessary knowledge, skills and expertise to provide clinical leadership, be adaptable and flexible in your approach to your role, and able to provide support, education and mentorship/ supervision to less-experienced colleagues. You will also have opportunities for career progression through promotion and/or service recognition schemes.
