This module runs alongside Psychology in Professional Practice 1. During the first year of training you are placed in a primary and secondary school with a field tutor. The field tutor demonstrates casework skills, undertakes casework collaboratively with you, and facilitates you taking on casework independently. You may also undertake some school based project work, working at an organisational level. Over the course of the year you will undertake casework with increasing independence following a model of systematic psychological problem solving. By the end of the module you can expect to complete an independent piece of casework in a primary school, and one in a secondary school. These are submitted as Reports of Casework and form 80% of the module assessment.
