Presentación

The only course of its kind in Wales, the programme of study at Swansea University for those intending to become Approved Mental Health Professionals (AMHPs) is a 60 credit postgraduate certificate at Master’s level, designed to meet the key competencies required by the Welsh Assembly Government and the Key Skills considered by the Care Council for Wales to be appropriate for the role.

Requisitos

The requirements for AMHP training include that all candidates (who may be social workers, nurses, psychologists or occupational therapists) be registered with their professional body, have at least two years post qualifying experience, together with relevant experience of working with people with mental disorder. They should have the support of their employer and access to appropriate learning opportunities. Interested health and social service staff should make initial contact with the Agency Liaison Person from their Local Authority to seek agreement for nominations.

Candidates should also have either a Bachelor or Master’s Degree or in exceptional circumstances, where this academic requirement is not met, applicants must satisfy the Director of the Programme that their experience and qualifications equip them to undertake postgraduate study. This can be evidenced by, for example, a relevant Post Qualifying Award. Candidates who do not hold a degree may be required to attend for interview.

This PGCert Approved Mental Health Professional is not available to international applicants.

Programa

The only course of its kind in Wales, the programme of study at Swansea University for those intending to become Approved Mental Health Professionals (AMHPs) is a 60 credit postgraduate certificate at Master’s level, designed to meet the key competencies required by the Welsh Assembly Government and the Key Skills considered by the Care Council for Wales to be appropriate for the role.

The programme has been introduced to meet the new roles and responsibilities for professionals working with individuals who are considered for, and who become subject to compulsory hospital admission and/or treatment and aftercare introduced in the Mental Health Act 2007. One of these changes included the introduction of AMHPs who will take on the functions that hitherto have been those of the Approved Social Worker (Mental Health Act 1983).

The PGCert Approved Mental Health Professional is taught at Swansea University´s main campus.
