Personal and social development linked to health and wellbeing is increasingly recognised as central to an effective education in which the potential of the whole individual is developed.
Curriculum for Excellence and HW E&O’s emphasize the importance of planned approaches. This module is therefore designed to increase competence in identifying and meeting the developing needs of young people through effective planning.
The module covers aspects below:
|Session||Second Sub Session||Credit Points||30 credits (15 ECTS credits)|
A review of key literature, theories and processes, including the field of personal and social development, health and well-being. The health promoting school, current models of health (both physical and mental) and their influence on the learner and society, including the development of emotional intelligence, self-concept, equal opportunities and racial equality issues.
The different patterns of lifestyles within the school and community and the influence of issues such as ethos, diet, drugs for example, on the individual showing recognition of the different perspectives at local and national levels.
Strategies for the delivery of more sensitive issues and decision making in the context of health and well-being.
Information on contact teaching time is available from the course guide.
Each module assessment will now include two formatives, each allocated 25% of the final grade with 50% of the assessment grade allocated to the summative submission. This will be equivalent to 8,000 words as required for all PGT 30 credit modules and account for a range of assessment reporting formats which will remain criteria based.
There are no assessments for this course.
