If you are working, or aspiring to work, in a position of influence across the wider health and social care community, this MSc is for you. The programme is targeted at aspiring healthcare professionals who wish to apply for leadership and management positions within health and social care, as well as those already working as allied health professionals, clinical scientists, nurses or doctors. The course is also suitable for those working in a variety of non-clinical roles, for example commissioners, quality improvement managers, clinical auditors, risk management, team leaders, social workers, patient advocates, or in the voluntary sector.

Three specialist pathways are available which enable you to tailor the programme to meet your individual needs:

  • MSc Leadership Development (Clinical Leadership) is ideal if you work as a clinician and wish to focus on clinical leadership;
  • MSc Leadership Development (Leadership and Management) is for those who are working, or aspire to work, in a leadership or management role;
  • MSc Leadership Development (Medical Leadership and Management) is suitable for doctors, offering bespoke modules which provide a medical content and a business focus.

The Leadership and Management pathway can be studied on a full-time or part-time basis. Other pathways are available on a part-time basis only.

What will I study?

The programme will provide you with opportunities for in-depth self awareness, critical reflection on your own style of leadership, and the opportunity to develop the qualities and decision-making skills of an effective change-agent.

You will gain insight into your personality traits and type, influencing style, emotional intelligence, team role, learning style, resilience and how to use this understanding to build a team. Developing the skills and knowledge required to effectively implement change and inform your actions with an evidence base, you will gain a range of pragmatic tools to enable you to apply theory to practice.

There will also be an opportunity to learn about research methodologies and undertake a project utilising your leadership and change management skills.

How will I study?

The programme will be delivered through lead lectures, workshops, seminars, master classes, Action Learning Sets, group work and critical debates to provide a framework to underpin the development of critical thinking and sharing in the learning process. The approach will be ‘flexible’ – blended learning where face-to-face sessions are the predominant delivery method supported by the University’s Virtual Learning Environment.

The aim across all pathways is to promote a values-driven, authentic approach to leadership and to develop effective change agents who are able to improve the quality of care. Throughout each pathway, reflection will be applied to determine the type of leader you are; the type of leader you aspire to be (and why); and the action that will be taken to further your leadership development. This will be supported by group work, debate, action learning sets, coaching, self-awareness tools, work shadowing opportunities, master-classes, coaching and student-led seminars. The aim is to create a learning community conducive to critical reflection.

The attendance is daytime, approximately three hours per module, however some modules incorporate online units of study. In addition we provide work shadowing and one-to-one coaching opportunities.

How will I be assessed?

The assessment strategy will focus on the synthesis and critical application of theory to practice in relation to your current or future leadership role. A variety of assessment strategies will be utilised to provide balance including essays, presentations, portfolios, a leadership development plan, reflective diaries, seminars, online discussion and the undertaking of a project. You will be assessed both formatively to support your development and summatively to demonstrate achievement of learning outcomes.

Who will be teaching me?

The programme team comprises staff from the Faculty of Health and Social Care, the Evidence Based Practice Research Centre and Edge Hill Business School, many of whom publish in international journals and present at national and international conferences.

An additional network of executive/senior professionals within health and social care will provide you with opportunities to learn from their experience through coaching and work shadowing opportunities.

What are my career prospects?

In an increasingly competitive health service, health and social care staff need to continually seek opportunities to add to their portfolio of qualifications in order to advance their careers. This is especially true for allied health professionals, clinical scientists, doctors, nurses and social workers where a postgraduate qualification is increasingly deemed desirable and essential.

For those students aspiring to work in leadership and management roles within health and social care, the programme will equip with you with essential transferable skills that will enable you to apply for a wide variety of roles within service improvement, project management, audit, governance, quality, commissioning, business operations, risk and patient safety.

This MSc Leadership Development programme will equip you with a range of leadership and change management skills. It provides a highly relevant qualification which demonstrates a commitment to continuous professional development and also gives you an advantage over your peers.

The Department of Indigenous Studies (formerly the Aboriginal Governance Program) is grounded in the intellectual and cultural heritage of Indigenous peoples in Canada and around the globe. We welcome students from all backgrounds and disciplines to explore the unique complexities and broad, diverse cultures associated with Indigenous studies which include natural resources, economic development and Indigenous knowledge. The Department of Indigenous Studies is proud to offer its students the opportunity to pursue a Master of Arts in Indigenous Governance degree, which was established in 2008.

Join us as we examine Indigenous governance through Indigenous wisdom and multidisciplinary coursework in Indigenous/Aboriginal governance and disciplines like politics, anthropology, human ecology, sociology, law, history, religious studies, and conflict resolution studies. We recognize and honor the central role of language as carrier of culture, conveyor of tradition and knowledge, and signifier of individual and community identity by supporting the teaching of the Indigenous languages Ojibwe and Cree.

Graduate students will earn a Master of Arts in Indigenous Governance, preparing them for leadership and management positions within Indigenous governmental and non-governmental organizations, and in urban and other community-based organizations; or to further their educations in a variety of Ph.D. programs.

About the Program

The two-year program Master of Arts (MA) in Indigenous Governance offers students an innovative and unique indigenous-centered, graduate level education.

The MA in Indigenous Governance is a multidisciplinary program grounded in an understanding of Indigenous peoples' values, principles, and philosophies. The approach we foster is one that combines a supportive environment for students of all backgrounds, while modeling and fostering the highest standards of excellence inside and outside of the classroom. We recognize and honor the central role of language as carrier of culture, conveyor of tradition and knowledge, and signifier of individual and community identity by requiring the study of an indigenous language, for example, Ojibwe or Cree. An international focus will prepare students to take leadership positions in the private and public sectors, to create and influence policy, to creatively approach development and governance from an indigenous perspective, and to promote the visibility and recognition of sovereign Indigenous peoples and communities in Canada and abroad.

The MA in Indigenous Governance pursues the enhancement of higher learning and advanced research for students and faculty while striving to contribute to the social, political, economic and intellectual aspirations and interests of Indigenous people, communities and nations in Canada and in the international sphere. Its uniqueness and innovative character derives primarily from the historical, political and legal context of Manitoba and Treaty One Territory, while making the intellectual heritage of Indigenous peoples a dynamic feature and extending its scholarly inquire to the broader domestic and international context. Required courses include topics of Indigenous self-determination and self-government, Indigenous Knowledge and Wisdom, languages, and specialized research methods and ethics.

The program’s specific objectives are to:
-Provide studies in matters of good governance grounded in indigenous thought and values.
-Provide an in-depth understanding of the human, environmental and financial issues and processes relevant to indigenous self-determination.
-Promote leadership and skills in areas of policy development and professional practice relevant to indigenous governance and public service organizations working with Indigenous peoples.
-Create an intellectual space of excellence to engage indigenous and non-indigenous scholars in the gathering, application and evolution of indigenous knowledges, philosophies and governance models.

The focus of the degree is on the theory and practice of the distinctive cultural, social, economic, political and legal environments of Indigenous governance. MA in Indigenous Governance offers a thesis-based or practicum-based program.

- Industry endorsements
“Today’s students need to have a perspective on critical global issues. This MSc programme provides knowledge on issues like human rights, good workplace and environmental standards and governance which are based on key United Nations norms and conventions. It is an innovative programme which I have not seen in this form at many other higher education institutions. I would recommend this to students who intend to become future organizational and business leaders.”
Jonas Haertle, Head, Principles of Responsible Management Education Secretariat, United Nations Global Compact Office

“Governance is becoming an increasingly important topic throughout many aspects of the world we live in today. It’s not any longer just the preserve of the Corporate or Banking world, it applies equally to pan continental and global organisations and agreements. The trick is to show that governance can enhance the effectiveness and efficiency of an organisation or programme and not just add a layer of bureaucracy or become ineffective because of compromise. The course content at the University of South Wales looks like a good mix of theory and practical applications that will be both interesting and fun to learn and will allow an individual to evaluate world and corporate events from a more informed standpoint."
Geoff Cousins, former Global Director of Jaguar Cars

Assessment methods

Formal examinations are not a feature of the course, each module will be typically assessed through coursework and presentations.

The supervised research project will take the form of a written report. Some modules will require you to develop podcasts as part of your assessments, which will become part of a collection of online educational resources. Full training and support will be given to ensure that you have appropriate levels of digital literacy to undertake all assessments.

The Masters in Christian Education and Leadership is a new part-time programme which enables education practitioners to carry out M level study that is clearly linked to developing their professional practice in schools, academies or colleges in order to support their journey as Christian educators and school leaders. The programme will facilitate students in integrating Christian philosophy and theology of education with the principles and practices of school leadership and will provide the opportunity to research and improve their own practice by engaging with a range of specialist themes, concepts and issues to an advanced academic level. 

Significant educational change has taken place in recent years and church schools and institutions are not immune from this change. Widespread debates around the nature, role, purpose and contribution of faith schooling in the UK challenge church schools and their leaders to adopt not only best policies and practices affecting teaching and learning, curriculum, leadership and governance but also to articulate the distinctiveness of what a church school can bring to the educational enterprise. This new postgraduate degree will equip current and future leaders in church schools with the conceptual and spiritual resources derived from the Christian tradition and provide an opportunity to discern and deploy these principles and resources in the ongoing Christian mission, ethos and priorities of their school.

The Masters’ in Professional Leadership and Management is an advanced programme of learning for professionals, managers and leaders working in public and community services who wish to develop their leadership capacities and strategic orientation. Read more
The Masters’ in Professional Leadership and Management is an advanced programme of learning for professionals, managers and leaders working in public and community services who wish to develop their leadership capacities and strategic orientation. It is intellectually rigorous, critically examining the relationship between relevant theory, traditions of professional practice and contexts of change and innovation.

Participants will explore the character of professionalism, the professions, challenges to the professions and ways in which – through knowledge and technology, organisational form and regulatory practices - the nature of professional practice is changing. A major and distinctive focus is upon inter-professionalism and both ‘the new governance’ and new ways of working which require inter-professional models of service. The programme examines leadership and management in (and for) these new contexts and the knowledge and skills required to perform what are changing and demanding professional leadership and management roles. It is expected that professionals from health, education and social work will be strongly represented and, so, mutual and shared learning among participants is a core aim of the programme.

Aims of the Programme
The aim of this course is to offer a broad, multi-disciplinary understanding of leadership and management for the public service professions, by bringing together academic insight and research into the professions and public leadership and management with participant and tutor experience of the contexts and character of professional practice. Through this, the wider aim is to promote greater understanding among professionals of the challenges involved in leadership and management of public service organisations, and to stimulate improved practice.

The course therefore aims to:

1) Survey, review and analyse the changing public services context in which professional practice is set
2) Examine, assess and apply ideas of leadership and management in professional and inter-professional contexts
3) Develop participants’ personal awareness, confidence and skills in managing and leading professional practice
4) Develop reflective practice, professional skills and professionals’ ability to analyse, negotiate, and make defensible judgements in complex situations.

Course Structure and Content
The MPLM is a 2 year Part-Time Master’s programme which comprises: 4 core/compulsory modules (total 90 credits: 2 @ 30 credits and 2 @ 15 credits); a further 30 credits of module(s) to be taken as option(s); and a dissertation (60 credits).

Candidates for the Masters take four core/compulsory modules: The State, Professionalism and Inter-Professionalism; Leading and Managing in Multi-agency Settings; Management of Human Resources; and Research Methods. Through their choice of electives, students will be able EITHER to deepen their learning about interprofessional leadership and management OR to ‘specialise’ in the context, form and substance of leadership and management of professional practice in their chosen sector or professional area. The electives offer opportunities variously to pursue further:

a) key aspects of leadership and management, generally;
b) understandings of the public service contexts in which professionals work; or
c) subject knowledge related to complex professional practice.

The Dissertation will normally involve a research project within or related to the work setting, a work task or the student’s management/leadership role.

Assessment
The methods of assessment selected to test achievement of the learning outcomes are intended to provide:

a) a blend of formative and summative assessment, the former intended to support progress towards the learning outcomes
b) a blend of written work and other forms of submission/presentation, the latter intended to enable productive interchange among participants and to test the range of disciplines required of professional leaders and managers
c) a set of tasks that invite participants to address one of the key learning outcomes – that is, the application of theory or method to practice
d) a set of tasks that invite participants to draw on (share) experience and to reflect critically on that experience.

Delivering excellence in health and social care at an individual, team and organisational level is not just desirable but achievable.

Course details

The philosophy of this programme is that for excellence to flourish every member of staff must be committed to, and play their part in, an integrated governance approach. This is where people-centredness and people-centred approaches to care are afforded the same esteem and recognition as finance, performance, risk management, safety and quality.

The programme is designed to develop and equip critical champions and ambassadors for quality, safety and governance in health and social care. It enables you to apply your comprehensive knowledge, understanding, expertise and advanced skills to lead evidence-based enhancement of quality, safety and governance in your health and social care settings and evaluate the impact of this. The programme is suitable for individuals from the public, independent and voluntary sectors from any professional background, including clinical and support services.

What you study

Year 1 focuses on the transition to mastery and explores the context of safety, quality and governance in terms of policy, theory and experience, at a personal, local, national and international level. You also study different types and sources of evidence. You use these to identify a quality, safety or governance issue of relevance to your role based on an in-depth study of the principles, practices and tools of safety and governance in health and social care. You then develop and justify a business case for change based on this.

The modules studied in Year 1 make up the Advancing Quality Improvement in Health and Social Care, PgCert.

In Year 2, you plan and implement a change project based on your business case presented at the end of Year 1. To help you achieve this you study topics such as a human factors approach, strategic change management, action learning and leadership and evaluation methodologies. You then develop and critique an evaluation study proposal in Year 2 which you take forward during your dissertation module in Year 3. The modules studied in Year 2 make up the Advancing Human Factors in Health and Social Care, PgCert.

Year 1 core modules

  • Principles and Practice of Safety and Governance in Health and Social Care
