Now, more than ever, businesses need dynamic strategic direction at board level. Qualified directors can help you stay ahead of the competition, recognise and create opportunities, remain composed throughout periods of challenge and lead your organisation to success.

The IoD’s award-winning Company Direction Programme covers the main essentials of directing a company and reflects the overall knowledge, understanding and experience necessary to be a professionally competent Director. Whether you are an experienced, newly appointed or prospective Director, the programme will ensure you clearly understand what your role as a director is (and is not), and equip you to successfully direct your organisation from a strategic perspective.

It also provides you with a route to Chartered Director status. In short, it has become the recognised boardroom qualification.

See the website http://www.lboro.ac.uk/departments/sbe/executive-education/programmes/accredited/iod/

About the Programme

A dynamic and professional board of directors has a collective responsibility to ensure that each member is contributing positively, able to perform effectively and ready to help lead the organisation. New directors will need to understand their role and how to be more effective, established directors will need to keep up to date with the latest thinking and trends, and the whole board will need to understand the implications and relevance of corporate governance in order to operate effectively.

Delivered at Loughborough University, the IoD’s chosen institution to deliver the Company Direction Programme for the East Midlands, this programme is delivered through a series of short business-orientated modules, combined with e-learning. This allows you to benefit from superb teaching from experts in their field, excellent networking opportunities with other directors and minimum disruption to your business.

All teaching is designed by directors to ensure it is strategically focussed and geared towards application in the real world, maximising your return on investment. Modules can also be taken individually as short courses, if that suits your needs better.

Our staff are especially experienced at working in partnership with the business community, offering advice and guidance throughout your training. Learning is action based and participative, and your ideas and experiences are shared with other Directors. Each course provides a forum for discussion and interchange of ideas among the participants.

Recent IoD participants include:
- Aarsleff Piling
- Checkprint Ltd
- Finesse Hotels
- Greenbank Group UK Ltd
- Hammonds Furniture Ltd
- Merck Chemicals Ltd
- Mortons Media Group
- Nottingham Emergency Medical Services

The Certificate and Diploma in Company Direction (Chartered Director, stages 1 & 2) are based on a blended learning principle, making them the most time-efficient way to keep you up-to-date with your changing responsibilities as a director. Individuals are supported along a continuous development path from knowledge acquisition through to exploring the application of this knowledge in a realistic and relevant environment.

IoD development programmes will equip you, as a director, with the key skills, knowledge and understanding essential for successfully directing an organisation from a strategic perspective. They lead to recognised qualifications: the Certificate and Diploma in Company Direction, and ultimately, to Chartered Director status.

The Certificate in Company Direction (Chartered Director, stage 1) consists of four mandatory modules, via 10 taught days. The programme encompasses the knowledge and understanding necessary to function effectively as a director. To be awarded this qualification you must successfully complete all the modules and the Certificate examination. Once you have completed the Certificate in Company Direction, the Diploma in Company Direction is the next step.

The Diploma in Company Direction (Chartered Director, stage 2) provides the opportunity to put into practice the knowledge and understanding gained from the Certificate with a 3-day ‘Developing Board Performance’ module followed by the Diploma examination. The Diploma Programme is designed to encourage peer group support and provides challenging and stimulating scenarios, mirroring in many ways the operation of a board.

The Certificate and Diploma programmes provide the route to those directors wishing to achieve Chartered Director status, a unique qualification available to directors who have demonstrated the requisite knowledge and experience to act in this professional capacity.

This exciting and unique Masters degree in Behaviour Analysis and Therapy equips students with skills in behaviour analysis and therapy relevant to a range of educational and clinical settings.

Behaviour analysts focus on understanding how a person’s interactions with the environment influence behaviour. They use this information to design effective interventions that will help people learn more appropriate behaviours, as well as reducing challenging behaviour.

This MSc Behaviour Analysis and Therapy course provides a solid understanding of the scientific principles that underpin behaviour analysis, and the therapeutic techniques derived from those principles. You will be taught by a team of Board Certified Behaviour Analysts who are internationally-recognised for their research and clinical work in the field.

Our MSc is approved by the Behaviour Analysis Certification Board (BACB), which is the international regulatory body for the practice of behaviour analysis. Students who successfully complete the course will meet the degree and module requirements for certification as a Board Certified Behaviour Analyst (BCBA). Certification also requires supervised practice and a passing score on the international certification exam.

See the website http://courses.southwales.ac.uk/courses/841-msc-behaviour-analysis-and-therapy

What you will study

You will study the following modules:
- Principles of Behaviour Analysis (20 credits)
- Research Methods in Behaviour Analysis (20 credits)
- Behavioural Assessment (20 credits)
- Behavioural Intervention (20 credits)
- Applications of Behaviour Analysis (20 credits)
- Ethical and Professional Issues in Behaviour Analysis (20 credits)
- Dissertation (60 credits)

The MSc Behaviour Analysis and Therapy has been designed to reflect certification standards and covers a full range of topics in Behaviour Analysis. However, it is possible for students to complete our Postgraduate Certificate programme which allows students to complete supervised practice in addition to this MSc. Students may either choose to start this qualification after completion of the MSc or may begin work towards their supervised practice alongside their MSc studies.

Learning and teaching methods

You will be taught through face-to-face delivery in the form of lectures, seminars and practical workshops. Additionally you will develop your research skills through the completion of a supervised dissertation component. The teaching delivery will be blocked into two days per week for full-time students.

Work Experience and Employment Prospects

Professionals trained in behaviour analysis are in increasing demand in the UK, particularly those who are BACB-certified.

Behaviour analysts are employed in a variety of contexts, including service providers for people with autism and/or learning disabilities, the NHS, schools, and residential treatment facilities for people with challenging behaviour. Some behaviour analysts also work as independent consultants in their areas of expertise.

Assessment methods

Assessments include examinations, practical assignments, and essays. You will also complete a dissertation, which allows you to analyse behaviour systematically and evaluate the success of treatment under the close supervision of a Board Certified Behaviour Analyst.

The MSc in Applied Behaviour Analysis is a highly interactive blended learning programme providing professionals from a wide range of backgrounds with scientifically validated expertise that is applicable to mainstream and special needs education, inclusion, curriculum, learning, and pedagogy. The programme includes a Behavior Analyst Certification Board (BACB®) approved course sequence (4th Edition Tasklist) (practice element not included).
This programme should be of interest to professionals wishing to become Board Certified Behavior Analysts, to those in the ‘helping’ professions (e.g. teachers, speech/language therapists, occupational therapists, psychologists) and students preparing for PhD studies.
The Centre for Behaviour Analysis is well connected both locally and internationally and unique project and employment opportunities arise on a regular basis.

What is Applied Behaviour Analysis?

"Applied Behavior Analysis is a well-developed discipline among the helping professions, with a mature body of scientific knowledge, established standards for evidence-based practice, distinct methods of service, recognized experience and educational requirements for practice, and identified sources of requisite education in universities." – Behavior Analyst Certification Board (BACB)
Behaviour Analysis is the science of behaviour. This means that we are interested in everything a person does, including what we feel (emotional behaviour) and think (cognitive behaviour). When this science is applied to enhance or develop socially relevant behaviours we call it Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA). There are many applications, for example, to enhance or teach communication and language skills, social skills, reading and other academic skills, life skills, business or classroom management, and many more. In other words, ABA is utilised to help many people in many situations.
Due to the effectiveness of the intervention methods and teaching techniques based on ABA, the demand for behaviour analytic services has increased worldwide, not only for individuals with autism and other special educational needs, but also for application in the mainstream inclusive classroom and many other educational, clinical, or general life contexts.

BACB Recognition

Professionals who are Board Certified Behaviour Analysts (BCBA) have the skills and knowledge to develop, implement and evaluate quality interventions that help to produce positive behavioural changes in a range of settings. The six modules of the MSc ABA cover the required academic curriculum. The programme presently does not include BACB practice requirements, but we have many national and international affiliate organisations who welcome our students and offer placements (some are paid, some unpaid) and supervision (in person or online). Supervised practice requirements can be undertaken while you are studying on the MSc ABA.

Career Opportunities

The majority of students are already in relevant jobs and the job market is healthy for BCBAs at present. Professionals who are certified BCBAs have the skills and knowledge to develop, implement and evaluate quality interventions that help to produce positive behavioural changes in a range of settings. Typically, behaviour analysts work in the ‘helping’ professions (e.g. teachers, speech/language therapists, occupational therapists, psychologists). Increasingly, jobs advertised for behaviour managers or specialists require BCBA status.
There is an increasing demand for BCBAs in Europe and worldwide, especially in North America. Teachers as well as allied health professionals should find this degree beneficial in their workplace.

Student Quotes

“I decided to study at the College of Engineering as it is a highly reputable engineering department.

My favourite memories of the course are the practical aspects and the lab work. Group projects have given me the opportunity to work in a team to overcome engineering-based problems. Studying at the College of Engineering has given me a good knowledge of engineering principles and has helped me to apply this to real life problems.

As part of my time here, I took part in the IAESTE programme. I worked with the Department of Civil Engineering at the University of Manipal, Southern India, on a development project involving an irrigation system.

My future plan is to get some experience in an engineering firm, and hopefully, this experience will allow me to work abroad for an NGO on further development projects."
