Occupational Therapists usually carry a caseload and work with employees of organisations, carers and other professionals to undertake timely individual assessments, produce care plans, review and monitor customers in the context of local guidance, policies, resources and government legislation and work with and/or direct service users to other appropriate services. Our Occupational Therapy course has been developed especially to provide you with the training and skills you need for a successful career in today’s Occupational Therapy market, whether that ne in the NHS, social services or a private provider. On successful completion of the course you will be equipped to apply for registration with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC), to work as an Occupational Therapist in the UK.
