Attendance and Independent Study As part of your course induction, you will be provided with details of the organisation and management of the course, including attendance and assessment requirements - usually in the form of a timetable. For full-time courses, the precise timetable for each semester is not confirmed until close to the start date and may be subject to some change in the early weeks as all courses settle into their planned patterns.
Callum Williams DBS Checks This course will involve you working with vulnerable groups of individuals, including children.
In order to ensure that the University offers places on their programmes to suitable candidates you will all be required to obtain a satisfactory Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service clearance formerly termed CRB.
We will be able to guide you through this process once you have been offered a conditional place of study at the University of Central Lancashire. It is important to note that should your Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service DBS check prove to be unsatisfactory for the purpose of the course you have applied to, your offer of a place for that course may be withdrawn.
If you have already enrolled on a course and your DBS check subsequently discloses a criminal conviction, you may be required to withdraw from the course even if you have already started.
If you are aware that your DBS check will disclose a previous conviction, please contact the course leader for advice as not all convictions may preclude you from continuing with the course. Learning Environment and Assessment Many modules will have classroom sessions supported with online learning material.
The emphasis will be on problem - based learning where a student will be facilitated to engage in deep learning and enquiry.
Blackboard, our online learning platform, will be used to support this process. All the staff teaching on the course are experienced clinicians and have many years of experience in education.
Each staff member is delivering modules within their area of expertise and so you can be sure that you are being taught by staff who are at the forefront of their field.
In some modules we also bring in experienced, practising clinicians with current expertise in an aspect of the module; this enables us to blend academic expertise, clinical knowledge and current clinical experience and to give you access to people who are able to ensure that your learning experience enables you to meet the demands of the current clinical environment.
Utilising your CPD training as Clinical Professionals Opportunities On completion of the course you will have the necessary skills to pursue a career in Sports Medicine.
You will also have developed valuable research skills that will allow you to continue with your education. After completing the degree, students will be encouraged not only to consider a position in Sports Medicine but to also consider further educational opportunities such as progressing on to a PhD or Professional Doctorate pathway.
The course team will be happy to discuss and advise you on these further progression opportunities.
