About

Overview

Occupational therapy is a varied, creative, and engaging career, designed to make a meaningful difference to people’s everyday lives. As an occupational therapist you can have a real impact on health and social care outcomes and enjoy excellent prospects and opportunities.

You will learn about the value of occupation to health and wellbeing – understanding yourself as an ‘occupational being’ and understanding the underpinning theory and philosophy of the profession.

You undertake a series of practice placements where you can grow your skills in the workplace. You will complete 1000 hours of practice within a mixture of NHS Trusts, Local Authority Services as well as possible opportunities within emerging areas of practice.
