Module overview

This module relates specifically to HCPC Standard of Proficiency set 12 as it provides the context to develop understanding the key concepts of the knowledge base relevant to the profession. Practice learning is an essential aspect of training to allow you to experience and understand the role of the practitioner psychologist across a range of settings and services. Placements are an arena for exploring theory and for gaining experience across the range of Children’s Services, including schools. Placement learning is designed to enable progression towards independent work across all three years and is able to offer you extended placements with three Services. This is the first module of 3 related ones (Psychology in Practice 1, 2 and 3) and runs alongside Consultation, Assessment and Intervention. It offers the opportunity to develop and apply the knowledge and skills taught on the programme to professional practice in a school context.
