Course Overview

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.

Core Modules

Advanced Professional Decision Making

Advance your decision making skills through critical reflection and the help of a “critical friend”. This is a specialist module designated for our Management and Leadership in Health and Social Care course.

Current health and social care policy, along with the modernisation of the NHS and other international models, demands new ways of working across traditional boundaries and the implementation of national targets at local level.

This requires the development of roles for confident, autonomous practitioners, who possess the knowledge and skills to implement complex decisions in a rapidly changing environment, and to play key roles in service development.

You’ll need to be able to utilise practical decision making skills within an area of professional knowledge and develop strategies to facilitate the implementation of the outcomes of the decision making process into practice. This can be individually or within a team or organisation. In addition, management of change and service development are seen as core elements of the module, together with the enhancement of professional judgement and leadership.

Organisational Transformation in Health and Social Care

Here, you’ll critically explore change theory in relation to your own field of practice, and demonstrate understanding of the theoretical and philosophical components of organisational transformation.

This module encourages the synthesis of strategic discourse with operational application as modes of organisational structures thereby forming strong links between theory and practice. You’ll be expected to demonstrate an ability to isolate and focus on the significant features of problems and offer synthetic and coherent solutions.

It’s expected you’ll produce original or innovative work relating to your specialism that’s worthy of publication, public performance or display.

Research Studies

This module is designed to provide you with a critical overview of the main methodologies and designs applied to research within health and social care, professional practice, regulation and policy.

It provides you with an opportunity to explore the theoretical dilemmas that lie beneath the process of inquiry and its relationship to practice. The module will provide a framework within which to select, evaluate and justify the research methods chosen for your research project.

Major Project

The major project is of central importance to the Masters award. You’ll be expected to bring together aspects of learning from previous modules, as well as using the learning as the basis for planning, conducting and writing a research or work-based project.

This module will support you in your preparation and submission of a Masters level major project (either a research project or work-based project). There will be eight hours of workshop support available to you during the module. This will be delivered as four, two-hour workshops. In addition, there’ll be a full-day introductory workshop before the module commences.

You’ll be allocated a minimum of six hours individual supervisory support, with additional supervisory support negotiated between you and your supervisor.

Optional Modules

You’ll also choose from ONE of the following 30 credit modules...

Global Leadership (30 credits)

Businesses, whether private, public or third sector, operate in a world facing a range of urgent global issues. This module examines the fitness of businesses and individuals to tackle such issues, based on the Global Leadership model developed by lecturers at this university.

This module consists of four elements:

Effective decision making
Adoption of a global approach
Creation of a new business paradigm
Creation of a contemporary mission.

It also considers the related concept of mis-leadership, which looks at how leaders have often failed to achieve the optimum outcomes for those they lead. Leaders predominantly create context and this module will explore the skills required to successfully mould and develop the context in a chaotic environment.

Law and Ethics in Social Care (30 credits)

This module will give you a detailed and critical understanding of the generic ethical and legal theories and principles that underpin health and social care (e.g. consent, confidentiality, duty of care, human rights).

You’ll also have the opportunity to focus on particular aspects of law and ethics that have relevance to your practice or personal interest (e.g. mental health, data protection, negligence, resource allocation, and medical research). This module is particularly relevant to health and social care professionals looking to develop crucial insights into legal and ethical issues in practice.

Collaborative Practice in Integrated Care (30 credits)

The role of individuals is a central part of the government's agenda for modernisation, as evidenced by the creation of consultant practitioners posts (e.g. consultant nurse and consultant therapist). These posts function across professional and organisational boundaries, and provide strategic direction to their particular area of expertise.

Equally, in social work, closer links are being forged in terms of policy, practice and organisations. Implementing this policy is often fraught with difficulties. This module seeks to address some of the most salient issues.

Assessment

How you’re assessed will vary between modules. This is in order to assist you in developing submission evidence for Management and Leadership professional recognition later. Assignments include the production of report, essays and portfolio. For the Masters, a major project of no more than 18,000 words is also required.

Course overview

Careers in Sport and Exercise Science can develop in at least two directions. Firstly you can help elite athletes reach their optimum sports performance. Secondly you can help the general population to improve fitness through exercise referral and community programmes.

This course allows you to specialise in both those areas, by providing you with a solid grounding in measurement, evaluation, research methods, data analysis, and sport and exercise psychology. Additionally, you will get the chance to study applied physiology, applied biomechanics or complete a personal project. The final stage is a research project that reflects your developed knowledge and skills.

Compared to undergraduate studies, this Masters has more emphasis on self-directed lab work, data collection and analysis. We encourage you to undertake real-world internships and build up experience with external clients and sports clubs. This practical experience will complement the rigorous research elements of the course.

By the end of the course you will have a portfolio of work, feedback from clients/employers, and a record of practical and academic projects. This will give you a clear advantage when it comes to applying for jobs.
