Occupational therapists work with people from a wide range of backgrounds and cultures and across all age groups, helping them to cope with a variety of physical and psychological problems. Occupational therapists work with a person to consider how their physical health, mental health and social environment affect their ability to carry out daily living activities such as personal care, domestic tasks, socialising, leisure and work. In addition to the Health and Care Professions Council, this course is also accredited by the College of Occupational Therapists and the World Federation of Occupational Therapists. You will combine academic study with practice placements and develop a variety of professional and personal skills. Attendance is Monday to Friday for the full-time course and Monday and Thursday for part-time. All practice placements run full-time Monday to Friday.
