Thank you so much
The aim of this unit is to enable learners to develop understanding of different theories and styles of learning and to apply this to learning strategies within the health and social care workplace.
The unit investigates the learning process. Learners will explore current theories of learning and relate these to the development of practical skills and the acquisition of knowledge and understanding. The unit provides an understanding of the different ways in which individuals learn and can be supported in the health and social care workplace to develop practice. Learners will draw on their own experience to suggest ways of supporting learning. Learners will investigate individual learning needs and consider how practice in the health and social care workplace can provide support for care workers. They will explore ways of planning learning opportunities and the factors that contribute to successful delivery or learning in the workplace. This unit is particularly appropriate for those with responsibilities for supporting the learning of others in the workplace, but would be equally useful for practitioners to use as part of their own personal and professional development.
