This module will support you to undertake a small work based project or activity that is designed to systematically develop areas of your own professional practice and practice issues in your setting.

The focus of the project is negotiated and can be related to individual or team practice development aims. It is particularly useful as a first step towards postgraduate study or to ‘top-up’ from accredited CPD to gain a postgraduate certificate or to fill a ‘credit gap’ to gain a postgraduate award.

This module can be studied remotely.

Course content

Over the course of the programme, you will be supported to:

  • Identify practice development needs in your setting
  • Critique relevant practice literature
  • Gain permissions
  • Develop problem solving approaches to evaluate practice
  • Work with others to develop practice and action plan
  • Develop resources/practice tools and reflect on the outcomes
  • Review, share and disseminate as appropriate.

Learning and teaching

You will be taught via blended learning which is learner-centred and supported by:

  • Tutor led seminars which can be on-campus or on-line
  • 1:1 academic supervision
  • Structured learning resources and activities supported through MyUniHub (online)


You will be assessed using a project report, including a reflective professional summary (WBH 4715: 3000 words, WBH 4720: 4000 words, WBH 4730: 6000 words).

The style of the report may vary according to the nature of the negotiated project and may include action plans and outputs from the project (such as staff training resources, education / curriculum materials, new protocols, audio visual resources).
