If you are an occupational therapist wishing to return to practice after a career break, you'll need to make sure you're competent to do so, and be able to meet the return to practice requirements of the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC).
This course is designed to be studied alongside a placement, and provides a structured way to meet the requirements of the HCPC, which includes supervised practice and formal study.
This course will allow you to reflect on your current learning needs and enable you to design a bespoke learning contract which helps you prepare for current practice. With the support of your personal tutor you will study a wide range of topics so we can be sure you're up to date with contemporary Occupational Therapy practice, confident with the current issues that apply to your area of practice, as well as developing your knowledge of wider health and social care policies.
Develop your skills
This level 6 course will facilitate critical thinking, improve your writing and address essential IT skills, which are all essential in the work place. It will also explore the theoretical underpinnings of the profession, models, approaches and core skills which will serve to enhance your confidence to articulate our unique contribution in the health and social care. Since reflective practice is an essential component of all practice, reflection will be a key focus allowing you to develop or refresh your skills in this area.
This course provides formal study, but requires you to organise your own placement in a setting where you will have the support of a qualified Occupational Therapist registered with the HCPC who agrees to be your clinical mentor. This can be either in a voluntary capacity or as a paid, unqualified member of staff and it can be in a setting where you have previously worked or are hoping to work.
This is a stimulating course, alongside your placement, will allow you to develop the knowledge, skills and confidence to return to practice.
