This book aims to provide the knowledge and tools required to enable healthcare workers to study at foundation degree level, including practical skills such as time management and reading for assignments. It also encompasses wider issues such as coping with change, considering values and ethics, and enlisting family support to help you meet the demands of your course. The book includes many activities to help you develop the skills you need for study and self-development. Use them fully, write out your answers, think deeply about the suggestions, and record your responses. If you revisit the activities throughout your programme of study, you will notice the changes and will be able to track your progress. Written by an author with long experience of teaching on the Foundation Degree in Health and Social Care Practice, this little book could make a huge difference to the way you approach your course, and your eventual result.
