Introduction

The purpose of this unit is to enable students to understand the role and contribution of mentorship in health and social care, which is to support the personal development and lifelong learning of staff. Mentorship is achieved through effective leadership, mentoring and/or coaching. Health and social care workers need to be able to differentiate between team and individual leadership, mentoring and coaching, and know how to apply these in their own practice.

This unit will support students’ understanding of mentoring as establishing and developing learning relationships that support people to take charge of their own development. The unit will enable students to develop their confidence and motivation, through self-reflection and improved understanding, and their interpersonal skills. Further, this unit aims to develop students’ practice in being able to lead, mentor and coach others in health and social care-related environments.

Students will review relevant theories, approaches and principles of leadership, mentoring and coaching, as well as considering the purposes and benefits of mentoring in health and social care practice. Further, students will plan, implement and review a period of mentoring in their own workplace.

The focus on personal and professional development through developing others will support students’ progress through lifelong learning and increase their capacity to develop as well-rounded practitioners in the sector. The learning gained from this unit can also provide the foundation for undertaking further professional qualifications in coaching.

Learning Outcomes (LOs)

By the end of this unit students will be able to:

Review theories and principles of team and individual leadership, mentoring and coaching in health and social care.

Explore how mentorship, through mentoring and coaching practices, can benefit individuals and organisations in care environments.

Apply mentoring and coaching techniques to support mentorship of individuals in care environments.

Review own leadership and mentoring practice in a care environment.

Assessment Brief and Submission Guidance

This unit requires you to take on a coaching and mentoring role in your current workplace setting. This must be organised by the start of your work on this unit and agreed by your workplace supervisor/manager.

Submission is in the form of an individual report which should be written in a concise, academic style throughout. You are required to make use of headings, paragraphs, and subsections as appropriate. All work must be supported with research with references and bibliography using the Harvard referencing system.

The recommended word limit for the report is 5000 words. Exceeding the word count limit will not be penalised. You should submit the report in a single word-processed document.

WRITTEN REPORT

Your report will be based on the case scenario detailed below. In your written report, you should review theories and principles of team and individual leadership, mentoring and coaching in health and social care by exploring how mentorship, through mentoring and coaching practices, can benefit individuals and organisations in care environments. To add value in your report, you should also apply mentoring and coaching techniques to support mentorship of individuals in care environments by reviewing own leadership and mentoring practice.

Case Scenario:

An 89-year-old female resident with Alzheimer’s disease has been living at the nursing home for many years. The family decides they no longer want aggressive measures taken and request that the resident’s code status be changed to Do Not Resuscitate (DNR). The evening shift documents in the progress note that the family (and designated health care agent) requested that the resident’s status be made DNR. The evening shift does not relay the information during shift change or on the 24-hour report or notify the attending physician. The day shift does not read the night shift’s notes because of several immediate emergencies. The family, who had been keeping vigil at her bedside, leaves to go home to shower and eat. Upon return, they find the staff attempting cardio-pulmonary resuscitation (CPR). The resident is successfully resuscitated but now lies in a vegetative state. The family is very unhappy and considering legal action.

Activity:

As the ward manager, to avoid such incident in the future, you decided to work with other ward managers by making strategic plan on mentoring and coaching new nurses and healthcare assistants and reflecting on own leadership and mentoring practice. To attain these objectives, you shall write a report composed of the following sections:

Section 1 – In this section, you should be focusing on reviewing theories and principles of team and individual leadership, mentoring and coaching in health and social care. You will be assessing the impact of theories, and principles of team and individual leadership, on own style of coaching and mentoring as applied in practice. To add value to the assessment done by you, you will also be analysing own approach to coaching or mentoring other workers in a care environment in a leadership role. Your analysis should be supported by discussing models of coaching and mentoring in relation to supporting practice in care environments and comparing relevant theories of team and individual leadership in relation to practice in care environments.

Section 2 – In this section, you will explore how mentorship, through mentoring and coaching practices, can benefit individuals and organisations in care environments by applying mentoring and coaching techniques to support mentorship of individuals. You should do this by critically reviewing the effectiveness of own leadership and mentoring practice in supporting the development of workers in own care setting. To support your review, you should include a debate about the benefits of coaching and mentoring for individuals and organisations in different care environment by discussing the impact of mentorship strategies on practice in organisations and on workers receiving this support. You will also demonstrate implementation of a series of planned, informal mentoring sessions to support care assistants in own setting, using different theories of communication and reflect on the impact of barriers on the experience of care assistants being mentored. By creating a plan for the delivery of a series of practical mentoring sessions within own work setting to support care assistants you will also discuss how communication theories are reflected in the plan to provide effective support to care assistants.

Section 3 – In this section of your report, ensure you review own leadership and mentoring practice in a care environment by critically reflecting on the effectiveness of own leadership and mentoring practice in improving own development and the quality of provision in own workplace setting. You will also be reviewing the impact of own leadership and mentoring style on own practice and that of others. To support your arguments and reflection in your report, you should also discuss own leadership and or mentoring styles as applied in practice within own workplace setting and examine the impact of own leadership and mentoring on the practice of own mentee.

Extension and Late Submission

 

If an extension is necessary for a valid reason, requests must be made in writing using a course work extension request form to the head of the department. Please note that the lecturers do not have the authority to extend the coursework deadlines and therefore do not ask them to award a coursework extension.

The completed form must be accompanied by evidence such as a medical certificate in the event of you being sick.

As per Pearson policy, you are only allowed two submissions per module. One for final submission and another one for a referral. Failure to achieve a grade pass after a second submission will result in you having to repeat the module in the next term.

Any re-submission or late submission (unless authorised due to mitigating circumstances) will be capped at a PASS grade only.

ASSESSMENT RESUBMISSION POLICY

As per Pearson policy, you are only allowed two submissions per module. One for final submission and another one for referral. Failure to achieve a grade pass after a second submission will result in you having to repeat the teaching, learning, and assessment/s of the unit/module in the next term.

Any re-submission or late submission (unless authorised due to mitigating circumstances) will be capped at a PASS grade only if meets the minimum pass grade requirements.

Plagiarism and Collusion

Any act of plagiarism and collusion will be seriously dealt with according to the regulations. In this context, the definition and scope of plagiarism are presented below:

Plagiarism occurs when a student misrepresents, as his/her own work, the work, written or otherwise, of any other person (including another student) or of any institution.

Examples of forms of plagiarism include:

The verbatim (word for word) copying of another’s work without appropriate and correctly presented acknowledgement;

The close paraphrasing of another’s work by simply changing a few words or altering the order of presentation, without appropriate and correctly presented acknowledgement;

Unacknowledged quotation of phrases from another’s work;

The deliberate and detailed presentation of another’s concept as one’s own.

All types of work submitted by students are covered by this definition, including, written work, diagrams, designs, engineering drawings, and pictures.

Collusion occurs when, unless with official approval (e.g. in the case of group projects), two or more students consciously collaborate in the preparation and production of work which is ultimately submitted by each in an identical, or substantially similar, form and/or is represented by each to be the product of his or her individual efforts. Collusion also occurs where there is unauthorised co-operation between a student and another person in the preparation and production of work which is presented as the student’s own.’ (Carroll, J. and Appleton, J. (2001). Plagiarism – A Good Practice Guide. Oxford Brookes University/JISC: Oxford)).

All submissions for assessment must be submitted on the Moodle in order to generate a Turnitin Report on plagiarism. The maximum Turnitin score admissible is 15% (after deduction of 1% to 2% records). Assignments with more than this adjusted 15% score will be automatically referred for reworking and resubmission. However, a submission may be referred with a lower score depending on the size of the submission and size of the text highlighted for similarity. Assignments with high similarity will be automatically referred for reworking and resubmission.

If Turnitin ratio is below 15% but a significant section or paragraph in the assignment depicts high similarity ratio and/or evidence of direct copying and pasting from other sources (even if a reference is given) and/or a figure/diagram is used in the work from another source without giving appropriate reference/acknowledgement then such issues may be suspected as a possible case of plagiarism and the submitted work may be penalised.

Any student might be called to seat through a viva with the lecturer to confirm any parts of the module through an interview which will then form part of the summative assessment.

Including text by converting it into image/picture in the assignment/essay/report/final submission (submitted for formative and/or summative assessment) may result into a referral grade.

To access any feedback (formative/summative), the student will have to access Moodle to open the submitted work. The student will have to click on the blue comment box in the right-hand side and the feedback will appear within the text. You might have to click on the blue bubbles to see the feedback.

Whether to penalise a submission for plagiarism or collusion will be decided for each case separately and on individual bases. Decision for one case may not be applicable for another case as different assignments or submissions are submitted under different assessment requirements. Therefore, the assessor, internal verifier, and lead internal verifier may collaborate to make a final decision for individual cases whether to penalise the work for collusion or plagiarism if suspected. This decision will subject to change until endorsed by the external examiner on behalf of Pearson.

ALL GRADES ARE PROVISIONAL UNTIL INTERNALLY VERIFIED AND EXTERNALLY CERTIFIED BY THE EXTERNAL EXAMINER ON BEHALF OF PEARSON. THIS MEANS THAT A GRADE MAY BE CHANGED AT ANY POINT UNTIL EDEXCEL CERTIFIES IT.
