Certificate in brain injury studies

The Headway Certificate in Brain Injury Studies is currently running annually with the first module started in September and the second module following in January. Upon successful completion of the course, students will be awarded 40 credits at university level four.

Each module will have four workshops covering the theoretical aspects, which students will have to attend, in two blocks of two days per module. This will be consolidated with self directed distance learning through online resources.

The first module is 'Understanding Brain Injury' and is aimed at professionals, carers and anyone interested in the issues related to sustaining an acquired or traumatic brain injury. The module will cover how injury is often sustained, the anatomy and physiology of the brain, the physical, cognitive, behavioural and social consequences for brain injured individuals, families and carers. It will also indentify relevant legal and statutory factors which may impact following a brain injury.

The second module is 'Promoting Recovery after Brain Injury' and covers the rehabilitation approaches used to facilitate recovery of the physical, cognitive, behavioural, psychological and social consequences following a brain injury.

Each module has 5,000 word assessments which are divided into a case study and an essay.

We run the course from Headway - the brain injury association head office in Nottingham and the course costs £1100+VAT per person.

Numbers are limited to 20 per cohort and places are allocated on a first come, first served basis from the initial declaration of interest.
