Transformative Practice

The aim of this programme is to prepare students to embody transformative leadership and mobilise their creativity in many different ways, whether in organisations, social movements, or a range of activities requiring personal initiative, dedication and passion to make a difference in a changing and increasingly uncertain environment. It will provide space for practitioners engaged in the management and delivery of services to reflect and think about the changes taking place in their organisations, communities and in the wider social environment. Practitioners will gain the specialised knowledge and understanding required to initiate transformative practice in these areas.
