Entry Requirements Programme Specification

The University of Cumbria is pleased to offer a new module which covers all aspects of multi-agency disaster mitigation and response.

The module will develop the knowledge, skills and behaviours of those expected to deliver interventions or lead in disaster settings.  It will broaden and deepen your perception of your role in disaster preparedness, management and resilience principles, shaping your ability to contribute more effectively to doctrine and policy developments that will ultimately improve yours and your team’s practise.

By critically evaluating the evidence, your own personal experience and that of others, you will be able to apply credible, timely solutions to compound problems in response to natural or man-made incidents wherever they occur.

You may enter the programme at Certificate/Diploma, undergraduate degree or postgraduate level to deepen and widen your perspectives of this important aspect of your work. The module can be studied on its own, or can form part of the BSc Practice Development: Developing Paramedic Practice or BSc/MSc Practice Development framework, DipHE Paramedic Science, depending on the level studied.

The module will run over three months and may be accessed completely on-line, with students working at their own pace and fitting their studies around their professional and personal lives.

Summative assessment is a written assignment that will be agreed with your tutor at the beginning of the module. You will use your learning and formative evaluations throughout the module to shape your final assessment.

Study options

This module can be taken at levels 4, 5, 6 or 7.
