Managing Health and Social Care

This programme is designed to meet the needs of existing or aspiring managers in a wide variety of health or social care organisations (including the voluntary or independent sector) who wish to develop strategic management skills. Participants come from a wide range of organisations and backgrounds, and this facilitates learning with and from other managers. The content allows you to explore a number of management areas depending on your development needs and role in the organisation. You may be a first line manager such as a team leader or you may be in a more senior role but may not previously have undertaken a formal management development programme. The programme equips you to manage effectively within your organisation and offers you the opportunity to further your career in a management field. The applied nature of the programme provides flexible opportunities to integrate theoretical learning with application to your management practice, developing your skills and knowledge in order to add value within your organisation in today's rapidly changing environment. You will critically evaluate strategic and operational approaches to management and reflect critically on management practice within your organisation. You will be able to directly apply your learning to your current and future roles. All modules can be selected for study as standalone modules if you do not wish to complete the whole programme. The programme aligns with the principles within the University's curriculum framework, and also with the Healthcare Leadership Model. The programme is delivered by blended learning with four one-day workshops for each module where you can learn with and from other managers. This approach aims to fit with increasingly busy working lives of managers in health and social care sectors.
