Course Summary

Effective practice requires you to develop an ability to interpret and influence policy, as well as work in partnership with others to lead and develop services. This short course will equip you with the knowledge and skills to target resources, lead and manage health and/or social care practice.

  • Practitioners within or aspiring to a leadership role will have the opportunity to further develop knowledge of leadership and management theories and strategies, enabling you to ethically manage people and resources and effect change.
  • You will explore how services are developed and commissioned, as well as evaluate the role of the leader lobbying and influencing change in the care arena.
  • You will study alongside a diverse range of students from both clinical and non-clinical backgrounds, bringing a richness to the course which will enhance your learning.

Teaching and assessment

In order to ensure flexibility, a blended learning approach will be used where students are expected to complete directed learning activities, directed reading exercises and a variety of Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) activities. This will be supplemented by classroom-based seminars.

You will be assessed through submission of an essay. Your module specification/course handbook will provide full details of the assessment criteria applying to your course.
