This programme will provide opportunities for those working within, or looking for a career, in Health and Social Care to not only critically reflect on and evaluate their own practice and that of others, but also enable a critical review of the strategic position of provision, thus ensuring this is contextually ‘fit for purpose’ and sustainable for future delivery demands. The Programme has been designed with a flexible, learner-centred approach, which seeks to focus on the application of theory into practice. It will meet student’s personal, professional and practice development need for a career in Health and Social Care. Our Health & Social Care degree at BGU assists with meeting the needs of Lincolnshire’s Care community. The Health & Social Care Act (2012) saw the introduction of major changes and aims to integrate Health & Social Care services into a more service user-centred and holistic model. Lincolnshire health and social care providers work in partnership to achieve the best outcomes for service users, families, and communities. For the first time, many services, including hospitals, doctors, nurses, housing, aged care and social care workers, are in meaningful conversation about how to best assist those most in need. There is no one-size-fits-all method of teaching at BGU – we shape our methods to suit each subject and each group, combining the best aspects of traditional university teaching with innovative techniques to promote student participation and interactivity. You will be taught in a variety of ways, from lectures, tutorials and seminars, to practical workshops, coursework and work-based placements. Small group seminars and workshops will provide you with an opportunity to review issues raised in lectures, and you will be expected to carry out independent study supported by our Digital Learning environment. Placements are a key part of degree study at BGU. They provide an enriching learning experience for you to apply the skills and knowledge you will gain from your course and, in doing so, give valuable real-world experience to boost your career. We recognise that individuals come from a wide range of backgrounds and experiences, so we use a variety of assessment strategies in our courses. Assessments in Health & Social Care will be varied, depending on the subject matter and the intended learning outcomes. You will write essays, develop presentations and class papers, lead discussions, engage with multi-media and ICT projects, complete reflective diaries, devise case studies and role plays, and participate in simulations and enquiry-based learning. On completing a Health & Social Care degree at BGU, you will have developed a broad range of skills and attributes which will make you ideally suited for a wide range of employment opportunities or for further study. Possible future career directions could include work as a Family Support Worker, work within drug and alcohol-related support services, support work in relation to homelessness or family violence, or employment in the fields of community, public or mental health as well as more traditional health care services.
