What is professional practice?

Professional practice builds on qualified practitioners’ existing knowledge and skills through exploring practice experiences from an evidence-based perspective, leading to increasing expertise in caring for people in a variety of healthcare contexts.

About the Course

The BSc Professional Practice Framework is a modular programme at Scottish Credit Qualification Framework (SCQF) level 9. It offers a part-time flexible route to a post-registration degree, a named graduate certificate or stand alone modules for Continuing Professional Development.

The key purpose of the post-registration course is to provide a model of study for current practitioners in health and social care to develop their academic and professional knowledge and skills.

You can choose to study for the BSc Professional Practice, a named Graduate Certificate, or take individual modules for your Continuing Professional Development.
