Candidates must normally achieve at least 80% attendance at clinical placements, and must successfully complete relevant specified learning activities before taking the end of module assessment.
Candidates not achieving the requisite attendance stated above must, before completing the module and its assessments, undertake such clinical placement as is considered necessary to address the deficit.
Candidates who do not complete the module placements within the prescribed clinical placement period will be scheduled for Clinical Recovery Placements to facilitate students in the completion of the clinical placement requirements.The Clinical Recovery Placements will be scheduled in agreement with supervising Practice Tutors within the clinical environment, which may involve clinical placement during the summer months.
