Teaching and learning disclaimer
Following the impact of the pandemic, we made changes to our teaching and assessment to ensure our current students could continue with their studies uninterrupted and safely. These changes included courses being taught through blended delivery, normally including some face-to-face teaching, online provision, or a combination of both across the year.
The teaching and assessment methods listed show what is currently planned for 2021 entry; changes may be necessary if, by the beginning of this course, we need to adapt the way we’re delivering them due to the external environment, and to allow you to continue to receive the best education possible safely and seamlessly.
This module is completed over a two-term (six month) period. Taught sessions will take place over a period of three months, totalling on average four full days with arranged shadowing experiences totalling a further two days.
Two further days of observed practice are provided (optional) in the final three months of the programme as you prepare for and complete the assessment requirements for this module.
Learning and skills development activities are issued to help you achieve the module learning outcomes and national benchmark standards for diabetes management practice.
Achievement of the learning outcomes for this module are assessed by a portfolio. You are assessed in your ability to perform safe and evidence-based diabetes management through written work and observed practice.
