Practice Based Learning resources

Practice based learning takes place during placements which involve a range of learning opportunities for student development. Students apply and consolidate their learning, bringing together academic theory, workplace practice to develop skills and competences needed to register. Practice learning is supervised and structured to enable progress towards learning outcomes and usually involves assessment of the learner.

Quick guides and toolkits

Guide to Practice based learning for Allied Health Professional Students in Leadership

This guide details the possibilities and benefits of offering PBL in leadership for AHP students. It includes key examples that we hope will be helpful in enabling you to host leadership PBL for AHP students, to achieve their learning outcomes and enhance their professional skills and employability.

Technology Enabled Care Services practice learning toolkit 

A new Technology Enabled Care Services (TECS) toolkit for students, educators and universities has been developed by Health Education England e-Learning for Healthcare (HEE e-LfH) and the University of Winchester. It offers a framework to prepare, supervise and evaluate students’ practice learning opportunities in a TECS environment.

The toolkit has been developed in response to the COVID-19 pandemic with students now undertaking some placements online. It aims to support creativity and innovation while providing a structure in the way TECS placements are offered to ensure patient safety and appropriate practice learning.

An overview of three aspects of TECS are available within the toolkit:

  • section 1 gives an overview of how students, educators and universities best prepare for TECS placements, including some practical tools
  • section 2 discusses student supervision, the various methods of teaching students and record keeping in a virtual environment
  • section 3 introduces an audit and quality assurance framework to formally assess student TECS placements, evaluate and improve virtual placements in a systematic way

The TECS toolkit is aimed at students, educators and universities across all allied health professions. For more information and to access the toolkit, visit the TECS Practice Learning Toolkit.

AHP guide to continuing practice learning while self-isolating

This guide is for educators and students who need to self-isolate and are therefore unable to attend in-person practice learning. It should be used to prepare and support educators, practice learning providers and students to continue their practice learning, to achieve learning outcomes and enhance professional skills and employability. The ideas may form an entire practice learning opportunity or may be used where a period of self-isolation is required during a placement.

AHP Technology Enabled Care Services (TECS) Practice Based Learning Guide 

This guide is for educators and students who already provide TECS or are considering ways of introducing innovative learning experiences to accommodate social distancing or students who are self-isolating. It should be used to prepare and support educators, practice learning providers and students to continue their practice learning, to achieve learning outcomes and enhance professional skills and employability.

Additionally, the guide provides some solutions to information governance challenges to enable AHP students to safely access and effectively utilise TECS practice-based learning. These may form an entire practice-based learning experience or used for a discrete period of self-isolation during practice learning. The ideas presented below bring together ideas and suggestions that have been tried and tested by AHP teams across the country. As research evidence emerges and more experience becomes available this guide will be updated to reflect this new thinking.
