    Special Needs Notice Dear Student

    Important: please note If you have a disability The University is very supportive of students with disabilities, and year–on-year we are making adjustments to assist students with special needs. It may be that we have already put in place changes which will assist you – but unless we know what your needs might be, we cannot guarantee that that will be the case. If we can identify your needs sufficiently far in advance of when you intend to start a course at the University, we are better able to put in place appropriate arrangements – or, if there is a health and safety issue or an issue about the expectations of students on the course, to advise you on alternative options. However, we may not be able to do so if we do not know in advance. If you have not told us about your disability Please do contact the University’s Disability Assist Services on Plymouth 01752 587676 to discuss your needs. While we are making reasonable adjustments to our provision, we may not be able to meet your individual needs if we do not have the opportunity to assess them in advance, and that could impact negatively on your experience on the course or even your ability to take up your place. If you have told us about your disability You may be asked for additional information or invited to attend an interview with Disability Assist Services. This is in order that we can properly assess your individual needs and ensure that we have the best possible chance of meeting them. Please do provide any information requested and come in to see staff if asked to do so, since otherwise you – and we - could find ourselves in a position in which it is difficult or even unsafe for you to take up your place. So please tell us about any disability – even if you do not think it will affect you while you are at the University – and respond positively to any requests for further details or for an information interview. If you do not do so, you may find yourself unable to take up your place or unable to complete the course because we have not been able adequately to meet your particular needs.

  • BSc (Hons) Podiatry 7 Student Placement Handbook 2018

    FOREWORD The BSc (Hons) Podiatry Programme is based in the School of Health Professions, Faculty of Health and Human Sciences, Plymouth University. The Podiatry BSc (Hons) Programme, introduced in September 2002, was designed in response to the following reports:

     Department of Health (2000) Meeting the Challenge London, National Health Service Executive

     Health Professions Council (2003) Standards of Proficiency

     Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education (2001) Podiatry (chiropody) Benchmark Statement, Gloucester, Quality Agency for Higher Education

    Fortunately the recent revalidation of the programme in 2013 has facilitated the updating of the programme to incorporate the new and revised Standards of Proficiency produced by the Health and Care Professions Council (2009). This remains a very exciting and challenging time for the Podiatry profession and this is recognised in the development of placements to support students’ learning and support mechanisms to ensure that students are supported whilst on placement, ensuring the success of the Podiatry Programme. In accordance with other health professions, the term ‘Clinical Educator’ will be used instead of Assessor of Practice/Mentor. The role however remains the same. A Placement Clinical Educator is responsible for the supervision of learning and assessment of practice of allocated students during a practice experience. All the information in this Handbook is correct at the time of printing. Courses are regularly reviewed and updated so details may change. Occasionally, a module listed in the Handbook may be replaced or withdrawn.

    WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF THE HANDBOOK?

    As a student on the BSc (Hons) Podiatry Programme you are required to complete 1000 hours of practice to ensure that you have had suitable opportunity to develop clinical skills required for achievement of the award on completion of the course. As part of your practice you are required to go on placement into a variety of Primary Care Trusts, Healthcare Trusts and Social Enterprises from across the Southwest region as indicated on the map below.

    This handbook has been compiled to help you understand the procedures you must follow to ensure your placement proceeds as smoothly as possible and who you should contact should something go wrong. You still need to attend placement update sessions at the beginning of the year and all placement tutorials and preparatory sessions beforehand. Placements generally follow a simple procedure as outlined in this handbook and if this is followed then it is a smooth process. Your Clinical Educators are all qualified Podiatrists who are registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and contracted by the National Health Service (NHS) and are therefore required to act in accordance with the HCPC Code of Conduct and Ethics and their employers’ policies. They will have received annual training to enable them to work with Plymouth University students and further support is available when necessary.
