If you're already, or would like to be, a leader or manager in a health or social care setting, our Masters course will develop and polish the skills you need to progress and be highly effective in your role.
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. You'll explore the important social and other factors which influence managing and leading both organisations and individuals, learning with other current and aspiring managers and leaders from a range of health and social care organisations from around the world.
Course Leader: Dr Nebil Achour
This course is a good grounding for careers in public services or global non-governmental organisations.
Your work is assessed in a variety of ways for different modules - this will help you later when you need to develop submission evidence for management and leadership professional recognition. Assignments include reports, essays, a portfolio, and a Major Project for your Masters.
Modules are subject to change and availability.
