We provide post graduate educational opportunities in which participants, stand back from their busy high pressure jobs, listen to themselves and others so they can then take actions that will deliver compassionate care for patients and service users.
The expectations of those delivering and commissioning services in Health, Social Care and associated sectors are more complex and more challenging than ever before and the potential impact of brexit on private and public sector spending is unknown.
We offer a range of training and educational opportunities including accredited and non-accredited workshops and programmes. On all of our programmes, participants work together to learn from real, practical, work-based problems and create new strategies and opportunities for themselves.
The corner stone of our educational offerings are two post graduate certificates programmes that build to an MSc Leadership for Social Care validated by the University of Northampton with whom we have been a partner organisation for over 10 years.
Our work-based learning (WBL) approach delivers practical benefits to individuals and organisations and opens up new ways of thinking and working.
The programme has been designed to give you a personalised learning experience, excellent opportunities to develop your academic knowledge and apply this to real life problems during the life of the MSc .
We have an increased focus on seminars or tutorials that allow closer interaction between students and members of our tutorial team.
You will be part of a small cohort of students whose learning will take the form of activity based workshops involving one-to-one or small group discussions, allowing for experimentation, exchange of ideas, teamwork and feedback.
For some students this style of learning reflects current work role for others it is much more like what you’ll find within the world of work and supports you on the Work Placement Opportunity module and following graduation.
Between face to face sessions your learning will be supported through the use of email, online discussion groups or learning environments and other technology-enabled means.
This active blended learning approach puts you at the centre of your own learning by giving you more opportunity to ask questions, delve deeper into leadership in health and social care, and ultimately give you the experience that will benefit you during the programme and after you graduate.
Clinicians, managers,patients, local communities and partner organisations all need to work together to achieve both their own and shared goals. Our programmes are geared towards promoting thinking that engages people and teams at all levels across within your own and your partner organisations.
Participants will gain particular insight into how to build opportunities for collaborative working inside and outside their organisations.
