Year one - 1st placement Learning is based on exploring ‘holistic’ care for service users and their families. Aim - To gain an understanding of the perspective of the person with a learning disability & of life as they experience it, rather than the perspective of a profession or agency. The students will gain competence in key roles/units for social work & nursing outcomes e.g. communication. 15
Year one - 2nd placement The 2 nd placement of year one will focus predominantly on achieving outcomes for nursing and requires a more health focused/nursing placement. 16
Year two - 1st placement The 1st placement requires a generic social work placement where the student gains experience with a client group different to learning disability. The social work key roles/units are mapped to nursing standards of proficiency and transferable skills demonstrated. 17
Year two - 2nd placement The 2 nd placement requires a learning disability heath/nursing focus. The aim is for the student to develop their experience in working with people with more complex needs, this may be for e.g. people with profound multiple disabilities,those identified as having challenging needs or mental health needs. 18
Year 3 The aim is to consolidate joint practitioner skills in nursing & social work and develop leadership, management skills and autonomous practice. There is one integrated placement whereby the students develop their knowledge & skills to achieve social work key roles/units and nursing standards of proficiency/essential skills. 19
