Dear Students, welcome to Introduction to Healthcare, Social Care and PublicHealth. Themodule aims to provide you with an understanding of the healthcare, public health and social care workforce and the context within which they work. It will include an introduction to the policies, practices, concepts and values that unite and drive them, and what makes each distinctive. The module aims to provide you with opportunities to consider, and make informed choices about, your future education and careers.

The module was interesting, but timekeeping from some students needed to be questioned as late entry to classrooms was disruptive to other students
• Some students were on occasion causing distractions for others in the classroom
• Regarding the module content and expectations some students found some of the work challenging because of leaving things to the last minute
• A lateness agreement between all students and the programme coordinator was agreed and will be implemented again this academic year
• Ground rules were laid out together with students about conduct and behaviour in classrooms, this year new group ground rules will be agreed between academic staff and students
• All students need to be prepared and organized and work to deadlines such as, contacting students to interview in a timely fashion, which will be emphasized in the module
