The course lends itself to a broad spectrum of delivery styles. Each session will consist of approximately 60% theory, seminar or discussion exercises and 40% experiential work or skills practise.
The Developing Emotional Well-Being in Children and Adolescents programme of study comprises seven mandatory units and learning is evidenced through meeting the Learning Outcomes for each respective unit. Learning Outcomes of one unit are likely to also meet the Learning Outcomes of another, due to the blended teaching methodology in the programme.
Assessment will be an ongoing process throughout the duration of the taught programme. Learners will be encouraged to be creative in collating their evidence of learning and meet the Learning Outcomes from an appropriately wide range of possibilities, thus ensuring openness in approach and inclusion.
Assessment will also include the completion of a learning diary, individual on-line projects, research and a case study, all of which will be presented in a Portfolio towards the end of the course.
