Learning and Inter-Professional Environments
Part of the SSSC Practice Learning Qualification suite of learning objects.
For all learners on courses and awards with an element of providing work-based learning there is a central requirement to think about and plan for a new learner joining the work-base.
For learners undertaking work-based learning there can be both excitement and anxiety. Most learners will be required to join an established team of people within a work-base and so part of the excitement can be related to developing new relationships and this can form, also, part of the anxiety. In addition to the personal work-based relationships there can be both excitement and anxiety about developing an understanding of the work-base culture, the ethos of the work-base and of course, the expectations of direct work with service users.
A crucial role for learning facilitators is the initial preparation of the learning environment, and the on-going work to ensure that the environment remains conducive for active, positive learning.
