Hello, and welcome from the staff of the diagnostic imaging and radiotherapy undergraduate programmes

Who are the staff? We are a small team within the School of Allied Health Professions (AHP). You will meet the respective members of the diagnostic imaging and radiotherapy teams during induction week. The programme leader BSc (Hons) Radiotherapy is Jan Chianese and for BSc (Hons) Diagnostic Imaging is Stuart Grange. Names and details of team members are listed on page 7. Where are we situated? The radiotherapy and diagnostic imaging lecturers' offices are situated in K block, at the far end of the Glenside site. Julie Bellamy, our secretary is located in the entrance to K block (room 1K22), with the Allied Health Professions' Administrative support team.

What can we do for you? The team is happy to help you with queries you may have related to any aspect that might affect your studies. All lecturers on the team are module leaders and also act as personal tutors and project supervisors. A list of module leaders appears on page 10. Your personal tutor will meet with you in induction week. For more about the personal tutor role see page 8. Finally These guidelines have been produced with the intention that they are read alongside the Faculty Student Handbook. The information contained within these guidelines is relevant to the programmes stated on the front cover of this booklet. We hope you enjoy your time here with us at UWE! From “the team”

Your Personal Tutor
All students are allocated a personal tutor to provide guidance and advice in respect of students' academic and personal well being (see Faculty Student Handbook). If you are ill you need to inform Bob Phillips, placement Unit Manager, telephone number 0117 328 81149 or email: and also your clinical area if you are on placement (see Faculty Student Handbook for more details). However, if you anticipate that you are going to miss a significant amount of time for whatever reason it is important that you inform the programme leader and also maintain contact with your personal tutor. If you want to see your tutor, sign up to an available slot on their door or phone them to arrange an appointment. Remember you do not have to be in crisis to see your tutor, we would rather see you before you ever get to that stage. In fact your personal tutor may ask to see you in the first instance, just to see if you’re getting on OK! There is a University Counselling Service should you need it (see your UWE Student Handbook). Telephone:0117 328 2561 Also there is a student advisor on Campus. A progress review is undertaken each year with your personal tutor, who is also responsible for writing a reference for your future employer. Telephone John Benefield on 0117 328 8828 Study skills tutor Elizabeth Langford, telephone 0117 328 8883 Study Skills tutor Carolyn Britton, telephone 0117 328 8813



Assessment Issues

 Please read the section on Assessment in the Faculty Student Handbook, which refers to the Modular Assessment Regulations given in the UWE Student Handbook.  Use the year plan on pages 4, 5 and 6 to organise your study around assessment dates. N.B. some of these dates may be subject to change.  Note some resit/resubmission dates are during the summer holidays. Please note that if you are required to undertake a reassessment it is your personal responsibility to verify the date, time and nature of such assessment.  Some modules are prerequisite to modules in the following year. This means you must pass either the initial or resit/resubmission assessment opportunity in order to enrol on certain modules in the following year.

 If you are unsuccessful at the first attempt, you may be given a second attempt (with two assessment opportunities) at the same time as the intake of students below you. This may delay your eventual graduation and have fee/bursary implications.  A second assessment opportunity at Professional practice modules is at the discretion of the Award Board.  If you have any problems, please ask for help sooner rather than later

PRACTICE LEARNING UNIT Student Allocation Policy

All practice placements for Nursing, Midwifery, Physiotherapy and Radiography students are arranged through the academically led Practice Learning Unit (PLU) The administrative staff responsible for the “allocation” function of the unit work to ensure that each student has a practice placement arranged for them, which is appropriate to the programme and the students learning needs. Currently the allocation officers deal with approximately 2000 placement areas and/or providers per year, across all of the above professions.

The aim of the PLU is to ensure that students receive a fair and transparent allocation of practice placements. In order to achieve this, students will be placed within appropriate Quality Assured practice placements on the basis of programme learning needs, but with due regard to: The student’s selected zone ( Nursing and Midwifery ) Placement availability Capacity of the placement Student’s profile/additional information Student’s term time and / or home address Number of students already in the placement Previous practice placement location Extenuating / special circumstances Previous travel to placements Student numbers Student’s willingness to use their own transport whilst on placement In order to achieve the above, the PLU:

 

Liaises with practice placement providers to ensure the placements can accommodate the number of students placed Liaises with the Practice Education Facilitators ( for Nursing and Midwifery or equivalent in the Allied Health Professions) to confirm the appropriateness of the placements identified and understand the implications, of any service changes. Acts on student evaluation of practice placements to ensure the quality of the placement experience is maintained Acts on the outcomes of practice placement Audit to ensure the quality of the learning environment is maintained 13

 



Endeavours to notify students a minimum of 6-8 weeks in advance * of their practice placement, with regard to location information and contact details, once the allocation of placements has been confirmed.

Once published the allocation list will not normally be altered. However if a student has exceptional circumstances, they should bring this to the attention of the appropriate allocation officer as soon as possible . The allocation officer may discuss the students issues with the Director of the Practice Learning Unit and appropriate programme leader.

The PLU is always willing to listen to student concerns but as general principles :    Students will not be allowed to swap/change their placement without the express agreement of the designated allocations officer. Under exceptional circumstances students may request a change of placement allocation, but only through the designated Allocation Officer Unless it is a specific requirement of the programme, the PLU can no longer support a placement request service. However requests can be made to the appropriate allocation officer on the basis of exceptional individual circumstances, and again where appropriate the advice and support will be sought from the Director of the PLU Students will not be allowed to swap placements across zones (Nursing and Midwifery ) however students may request a change of zone through the approved change of zone policy ( reference student practice placement information manual ) Because of the complexity of placements and the need to ensure transparency, tracking and equity, students will not be allowed to contact and/or organise their own placements ( unless undertaking a Nursing elective experience)



The PLU expects students to take holiday leave entitlement during the periods stated within the programme handbook, and students are therefore not permitted to negotiate a change of holiday directly with the practice placement. In exceptional circumstances a request can be made through the programme leader who will then discuss the possibility of a change with the Director of the PLU. * Until we have signed agreements from Nursing and Midwifery community placement providers and Physiotherapy we cannot guarantee this.
