Description

This pathway of units provides experienced health and social care professionals with the opportunity to develop and extend their knowledge of management theory and enhance their practice.

This course is primarily designed to meet the management and leadership development needs of leaders or managers already in post. This includes supervisors, team leaders, first line managers, middle and senior managers/leaders. However, experienced professionals who aspire to a management career/leadership role may also access the course as long as they have supervisory responsibilities that allow them to complete the practice assessments. As this course offers a good grounding in strategic management, it is suitable for managers currently in first line and middle manager positions who may be seeking promotion to a senior position.
 
The structure of this award is such that you do not apply for the whole award at once but instead undertake ‘bite sized chunks’ of study according to your needs. You choose the CPD Leadership and Management units from the list below that meet your specific requirements/needs and build up to one of the Leading & Developing Services awards unit by unit, paying for each individual unit as you undertake it. You have the option to either exit with an interim award or continue for a the full MA award. The award options are:

Post Graduate Diploma Leading & Developing Services (interim award)
When you have completed a minimum of 120 level 7 credits (20 credits must be from the mandatory Leading for Change unit) you can opt to exit the programme and be awarded a Post Graduate Diploma Leading & Developing Services.
