How learning is monitored on your programme

To cater for the wide-ranging content of our courses and the varied learning preferences of our students, we offer a range of assessment methods on each programme. Assessment techniques vary from module to module to reflect relevant assessment approaches and the key learning points of each topic.

The programmes’ assessment strategy utilises a wide range of assessment methods to ensure that you are able to demonstrate your skills and knowledge. Assessment tasks are designed to enable you to develop skills and encourage robust feedback processes from peers and academics alike.

There are also opportunities for diagnostic assessment to enable you to anticipate, identify and action plan around your specific developmental needs. This will ensure that assessment tasks are relevant and meaningful to you and your work and offer appropriate preparation for development. Hence, there is a strong reliance on methods that relate to reflexivity, evidence-based practice and consideration of ‘real-world’ practice.


The aim of this module is to analyse the role of evaluation in service delivery within health and social care settings to develop organisation wide changes which are coherent and internally consistent.
