Learn Through Work (Professional Practice Awards)

Work with Northumbria University to gain a degree through work based learning.

Health and social care is a dynamic and rapidly evolving sector. As a result there is a constant demand to keep skills and knowledge up to date and ensure care is delivered to the best of your abilities, on the basis of the best evidence and best practice (NMC, 2015).

The Professional Practice Awards in Health and Social Care at Northumbria University span both undergraduate and postgraduate levels of study and are designed to promote professional and personal development; intended to benefit both the learner and their employing organisation.

Inter-personal, inter-professional, intellectual and practical skills are developed through the recognition and critical reflection upon the individual’s continuing professional development, independent work-related study and real time work-based projects.

The Northumbria University Professional Practice Awards offer bespoke qualifications delivered by a highly skilled and experienced team of academics who are also active within the field of health and social care.

The uniqueness of our approach is the work-based learning focus which allows for flexibility across our delivery, content and timing of the programmes. It also provides opportunities for organisations to derive a benefit and competitive advantage by maximising the relevance of bespoke projects and initiatives.
