An exciting new development for the School, the Sarah Swift Building, is a £19m investment into a dedicated facility for the Schools of Health and Social Care and Psychology. The building houses high-quality teaching, research, social and learning spaces for both Schools.
This is a professional, Master's level, post-qualifying programme approved by Social Work England.
This programme is designed to develop the knowledge, competences and values needed to carry out the specific duties of an Approved Mental Health Professional (AMHP) under current mental health legislation.
-Students on this programme may have the opportunity to engage in a number of guest lectures from nationally recognised speakers and also the opportunity to attend national AMHP research events.

This programme commences with a five week 'academic block' of university attendance followed by a 'practice placement block', which involves a 40-day supervised, statutory mental health placement. The academic block is full-time, however the mental health practice placement can be taken on a longer term part-time basis if required.
All students are provided with comprehensive documentation and relevant textbooks and are enrolled as students of the University of Lincoln, allowing access to University resources including the library and electronic Blackboard system.
The academic programme block covers three core modules over a five-week period. The supervised mental health practice placement is taken over 40 days. This is flexible, and can be achieved through a placement duration of two to five days per week (the option of completing this through a two-day per week placement may be attractive to part-time applicants). Staff are available to help support the arrangement of these placements if necessary.
Teaching and learning on this programme uses blended-learning methods. The core content delivery includes a combination of presentations, workshops, directed learning and practice based learning. It is anticipated that attendance at university for the first part of the programme will be required three days per week with one day per week of online teaching and learning.
During the placement period, one day per will be devoted to teaching and learning with either in class attendance or online activities.
Postgraduate level study involves a significant proportion of independent study, exploring the material covered in presentations and workshops.
All placements are provided by partner organisations and students are supported while on placement by work-based mentors and practice educators, as well as university tutors.
† Some courses may offer optional modules. The availability of optional modules may vary from year to year and will be subject to minimum student numbers being achieved. This means that the availability of specific optional modules cannot be guaranteed. Optional module selection may also be affected by staff availability.
