  • CONGRATULATIONS AND WELCOME TO THE BSc (HONS) PHYSIOTHERAPY

    PROGRAMME AT TEESSIDE UNIVERSITY

    We look forward meeting you and hope that you will find your time at the University rewarding and

    challenging. Our aim is to equip you with the attributes and competencies that are required in order to

    meet the demands of a constantly evolving profession. Not least of these is the ability and enthusiasm to

    engage in ongoing development of the individual and of the profession.

    This programme aims to enable you to undertake a journey of personal and professional development in a

    supportive, student-centred environment. Your undergraduate experience is a transitional phase through

    which you will develop from lay-person to an independent practitioner who can work autonomously and

    take professional responsibility for your own standards of practice. You will be equally able to work in an

    independent and inter-professional way. The programme team is committed to student-centred learning

    through negotiation, shared responsibility and mutual respect. This professional and holistic relationship

    between the students and tutors mirrors the type of physiotherapist/client relationship we wish to

    encourage.

    There will be opportunities for you to engage with learning alongside other students in the School of Health

    & Social Care (SOHSC) over your three years of study. Through the shared learning it is envisaged that

    teamwork and an appreciation of other disciplines’ contribution to health care will be developed, this will

    mainly occur within your clinical placements. This will enable you to engage fully with inter-professional

    education and examine the complexities of delivering inter-agency care.

  • The purpose of this handbook is to provide information that is specific to the BSc (Hons)

    Physiotherapy programme in your first year. In the following pages you will find details of the

    programme structure, the aims of the programme and an explanation of our approach to

    learning, teaching and assessment. You will be provided with a new Programme Handbook for

    the second and third years of your study

    You will also receive electronic Module Guides for each specific module that you study

    throughout the programme which are accessed via Blackboard at e-learning@tees.

    This handbook should be looked at in conjunction with the School of Health & Social Care

    Student Essential Guide http://sohsc.tees.ac.uk/sites/handbook/ and the University Student

    Handbook, http://www.tees.ac.uk/studenthandbook, both of which provide important

    information relevant to all students in the SOHSC.

    You’ll find that we’re keen to help you to make the most of your time here. This handbook is

    intended to give you an overall idea of what to expect from your programme, especially your

    first year.

    Good Luck with your studies and enjoy your time at Teesside.

  • THIS PROGRAMME AIMS TO:

    • Facilitate the development of physiotherapists who will be autonomous, professional, reflective

    practitioners with an ability to evaluate research and apply an evidence-based approach to

    practice.

    • Enable the development of inter-personal skills which underpin effective physiotherapy

    management and support effective collaboration within and between health, social and

    independent care agencies.

    • Develop skills to enable ongoing active engagement and collaboration with service users and

    carers across all aspects of health and social care.

    • Facilitate active engagement in continuous professional development in the context of ongoing

    self and professional regulation.

    • Promote ethical behaviour and adherence to standards of professional practice and codes of

    conduct at all times.

  • As the programme leads to eligibility to apply for

    registration with both professional and statutory

    bodies we expect 100% attendance on the

    Physiotherapy programme. Your attendance

    will be monitored.

    If you are unable to attend you must negotiate

    with your Module Leader and/or Personal Tutor

    how you intend to address the material covered

    in the missed sessions. This is because we are

    preparing you for practice and we have a duty

    of care to you and the public.

    If during your studies you have any issues that

    impact on your ability to attend sessions it is

    very important that you contact your Personal

    Tutor or the Programme Leader to seek advice

    and support.

    If you are unable to attend either University or

    Practice Placement, for whatever reason, you must

    advise the Student Records office on 01642 384586,

    by 10.00am and follow the guidance here

    https://sohsc.tees.ac.uk/sites/handbook/index.cfm/at

    tendance/pre-registration-students/ AND your

    Practice Placement site by your usual start time.

    Please remember to inform Student Records on the

    day of your return.
