Abstract

The aim of this paper is to disseminate the conception and progress to date of the development of work-based learning as part of post qualifying education in the School of Nursing at the University of Salford. There is a changing culture within the university in relation to the delivery of programmes via non-traditional routes. With this in mind work-based learning is a radical change from current teaching and learning strategies within the school and the wider university. This creative and imaginative approach contrasts significantly with the more traditional methods to teaching and learning in higher education. This paper will briefly report on the development, introduction and evaluation of a work-based learning module at level two as a pilot project. It will then go on to outline the progress to date in the development of a work-based learning degree utilising the lessons learnt from the pilot.
