Essential guidelines

 

·         This unit requires learners to develop as reflective practitioners.

·         Work placement: A minimum of 200 hours of work experience should be completed which should provide opportunity for collection of evidences of achievement of learning outcomes. Verified evidence of 200 hours of time spent in work experience should be included within the personal development portfolio.

·         Work-place mentors should ensure that (a) learner experience in practice settings is appropriate in addressing all the learning outcomes and assessment criteria, (b) should support learners through tutorials and meetings to devise appropriate development plans, and (c) should provide guidance about presenting evidence so that it effectively reflects their abilities as a developing health care practitioners.

·         Portfolio: Evidences of learning are to be presented through a portfolio that reflects the learner’s ability as a reflective practitioner. Learners will present a portfolio of evidence to demonstrate their developing skills, knowledge and abilities as individuals and developing care workers. Basically, the portfolio should contain ‘evidences’ and ‘the reflection’ of the practitioner.

·         Evidences of achievement of learning outcomes can be anything from a mentor/tutor rating to evidence of visiting a patient’s home which a learner thinks has helped her or him achieve the learning outcome. 

(a) The following could be included: written reports, evaluations of performances (supervisor’s report, check lists, patients’ evaluations), records of practical procedures, expert witness testimony, observation records, assignments, descriptive reports and artefacts etc.

(b) PDP:  Planning, monitoring and revision of personal development plans would be appropriate evidence for achieving personal targets and learning outcomes.

(c) Evidence from workplace settings should be validated and authenticated by appropriately qualified expert witnesses in the form of work-place mentors.

·         Reflection on learning: Reflection is revisiting an experience after the event in order to extract the principles and effectively ‘bank’ these for future use. This should be directed to promote learning, personal and professional development, and improvement of practice. The reflection must answer four questions relating to a learning experience: What did I learn? What do I still need to learn?  What resources did I use for further learning? What further learning was achieved?

·         It is essential that learners respect the confidentiality of information from the workplace at all times.
