University of Central Lancashire has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.
This innovative and dynamic occupational therapy programme will provide an outstanding learning experience for those wanting to join this well-established and valued profession. Combining academic and practice placement components, UCLan offers a three year full-time BSc course to enable students to develop all the skills, knowledge and attributes required to meet the Health and Care Professions Council requirements for registration as an occupational therapist. Key features of the course include a small student cohort, the use of novel technology and authentic case studies to support learning, superb clinical skills environments and a programme placed within a Faculty of Health and Wellbeing ensuring a range of opportunities for inter-disciplinary education. Academic teaching is provided by educators who are themselves occupational therapists with a wealth of knowledge. They use a wide range of teaching and learning resources to ensure that the course content comes to life. The programme has been commended by the Royal College of Occupational Therapists for links with COMENSUS, an organisation within the University comprising people with experience of health and social care. This collaboration ensures students hear first-hand how health conditions can impact a person’s life. Learning in practice placement settings provide opportunity to translate learning from University into a practice environment. Students are supported on their practice placements by experienced and knowledgeable occupational therapist educators. Each student will have the opportunity to experience at least four different practice settings. Come and join the occupational therapy team as they shape this exciting programme to meet the needs of ever-changing health and social care environments.
