Mentorship for Urgent and Pre-Hospital Care
Level 5, 20 Credits
This online distance learning course is primarily aimed at registered paramedics.
It will develop your knowledge and skills on the practicalities of mentoring in the pre-hospital setting, enabling you to adopt the appropriate professional approach when supporting and developing others.
The course is tailored for the unique and dynamic pre-hospital environment and offers you insights into:
- teaching and learning methods
- collaborative approaches
- professional accountability
The programme is delivered over a 14 weeks, commencing at various times of the academic year.
The cost for this CPD module is £40.00 per credit for both CPD apply and self-funded routes.
The programme uses a media-enhanced, distance approach to learning which means you can study at a time and pace that fits in with your individual needs.
The programme is delivered via:
- interactive online lectures
- problem-based scenarios to study and complete for portfolio
- online resources via Blackboard, LJMU's virtual learning environment (which is also accessible via smartphones)
The course is delivered purely at a distance. The only attendance requirement is for initial module registration and demonstration of media. Following this, all sessions are delivered via a virtual classroom (online).
A unique delivery methodology comprising technology and human support takes the student away from the traditional classroom lecture – this allows access at any time, from anywhere and allows the application of skill, knowledge and professionalism.
