Management and leadership in the health and social care sector is increasingly important worldwide, with The World Health Organization highlighting the need for managers to have appropriate competencies (WHO, 2007) and the NHS promoting specific values and principles of care (Department of Health, 2010).

Our course is designed to make sure you gain the knowledge, skills and emotional tools you need to meet these requirements and develop your full potential as a manager.
