LEARNING OUTCOMES

Upon successful completion of this module, students will have demonstrated

Skills

 

S1the ability to suggest future trends in social care for individual states and for Europe.

S2the ability to assess how far welfare systems across Europe are under economic and political pressure.

 

CONTENT SYNOPSIS The module begins with an overview of the heterogeneity of social care delivery systems in Europe prior to the 1950.  In the sessions which follow the impact of these developments on social care delivery in separate states is examined:  Sweden, Denmark, Germany (East, West and United), Poland, Italy, Spain, UK.  Finally, the continuities and discontinuities in these delivery systems are compared to discover strategies which might be transferable across states and to map out future trends nationally and on a European level.

ASSESSMENT METHODS

 

(Please ensure that the sequence numbering of the assessments is in the correct chronological order for the module, as this may affect funding.)

 

  1. This is the ‘name’ of the assessment unit; this unit will be shown on SITS and in student transcripts. A single mark will be returned for the element, even if the element is made up from several pieces of work
  2. This is the percentage of the assessment for the whole module which the element represents
  3. This describes the assessment of the element; where necessary you should indicate if there are several different pieces of work in the element
  4. This indicates the percentage of the assessment of the element represented by this piece of work. This is an exam which falls under central timetabling (i.e. end of semester 1 or end of year). If there is more than one piece of work which contributes to the element you should show how the element is split between the various activities.
  5. This indicates the percentage of the assessment of the element represented by this piece of work. This is an exam which falls under faculty scheduling (i.e. in-course test or exam)
  6. This indicates the percentage of the assessment of the element represented by this piece of work. Coursework includes:
    1. Written assignments such as essays and case studies
    2. Reports
    3. Dissertations or projects, including performances, artwork etc as well as written work (see note below item 3)
    4. Portfolio
    5. Set exercises such as data analysis, problem-solving not under exam conditions
  7. This indicates the percentage of the assessment of the element represented by this piece of work. Practical work includes:
    1. Practical skills assessment such as a performance or laboratory work
    2. Language translation or comprehension
    3. ‘Identification of, or commentary on, artwork’
    4. Oral assessment and presentation. This includes:
      1. Foreign language orals
      2. Formal presentations
      3. Assessed contributions to seminars
      4. Vivas
