SSPRD Framework for Flexible Learning
At the Faculty of Health Studies, University of Bradford, you can choose to study for individual modules, a named award or build module credits through the SSPRD Framework for Flexible Learning to achieve an award relevant to your professional needs.
The Framework for Flexible Learning in Health and Social Care is a Faculty-wide academic structure for Specialist Skills and Post-Registration Development.
It offers students increased flexibility and choice in the modules and courses that can be undertaken and it is also responsive to employer needs.
The flexibility also allows you to move from one award to another if your career changes or you take time out from regular studying.
Shared teaching and research expertise from across the Faculty is offered through interdisciplinary teaching across our core research modules.
The Faculty of Health Studies is regionally, nationally and internationally recognised for its teaching and research, and works with a number of healthcare partners to ensure clinical excellence.
Learning and assessment
The programme is delivered over 11 weeks, and incorporates 150 hours of theory and a minimum of 150 hours of clinical practice.
The theoretical component of the programme consists of:
- Directed study
- Group & individual tutorials
The first week is taught in the Faculty of Health Studies, followed by 5 study days whilst on placement.
Students undertake a minimum of 150 hours of clinical practice over 10 weeks, with the support of a qualified mentor. The actual days and hours worked are negotiated with the placement. If clinical competencies cannot be achieved in 150 hours then an extension of up to an additional 50 hours of practice MAY be possible at the discretion of the placement provider. (Practice hours for midwives may vary).
