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.

Summary

This postgraduate programme is designed to offer professionals the opportunity to engage in systematic and analytical enquiry into the theory and practice of leadership and management in education. Students will use the knowledge and skills gained to improve their own practice, in leadership and management roles, across the whole range of educational institutions and related organisations.

While keeping a concern for people and human flourishing at its forefront, the course will strengthen your understanding of advanced scholarship in educational leadership and management, and of how the established techniques of research and enquiry are used to create and interpret knowledge. Using this approach, you will be able to critically examine the organisations and systems in which you work, and achieve outcomes for stakeholders.

This course will encourage you to specialise in your particular areas of interest, reflecting your professional role and future career goals in education leadership and management.

Modules are normally taught at early evening sessions. Full time students usually attend between three and four days a week. Part time students in full time employment usually take three years to complete the full MA and they normally attend one evening in the autumn semester and two in the spring/summer semester.

The programme provides opportunities to engage with current research covering a broad range of issues and recent thinking, and is informed by active research and scholarship in the development of educational leadership and management theory and practice.

The MA programme has been designed to achieve a close connection between the learning environment and the workplace. Emphasis is placed on face to face delivery of the programme with student participation and experience being central to the facilitation of learning and teaching. The use of professional specialists to provide input where required is also a key feature of the learning approach.

The programme examines the practice of leadership and management informed by an analysis of wider management theory, in a changing organisational context.

You will attend our Bognor Regis campus for 1 day per month for 10 months in the first 2 years. The final year is more flexible and focuses on producing a dissertation topic supported by your tutors. We predominantly use small group learning and Action Learning Sets to deliver the content of the programme. Assessment is via assignment/presentations and report completion.

You will create a detailed, transformational Personal Development Plan in your first year alongside a study into ‘Managing a Department’. In the second year you will study Strategic Leadership and High Performance Team Management. In the final year you will attend research methods workshops, decide on a specific area to investigate and report on what is relevant to you, your career or your employer.

Contemplating taking on a masters-level programme whilst maintaining a demanding full-time position and a young family is a scary thought. This worry, however, was quickly removed when starting on the University of Chichester’s part-time MA in Leadership and Management. It would appear to me that this programme is specifically designed for people in my situation. The self-directed teaching style, complemented with monthly taught sessions, creates the excellent balance to fit post-graduate study into an already busy schedule.

The flexibility of course content and focus on work-based learning has allowed me to bring my studies into the workplace and has already helped to deepen my understanding of my role as a manager. Learning and sharing with others professionals seeking to also broaden their perception of management practice is a real asset and allows for further insight through supportive challenges and encouragement.

I would certainly recommend this course to others wishing to develop themselves as a leader, to bridge the gap between management theory and practice and to deepen their understanding of the role they play in their respective teams."

Vito Mastrolonardo, Head of Support & Customer Experience:

"There are a number of organisational developments where I work and with development comes change and opportunity. I want to put myself in the best place possible for the career developments that may arise.

Furthering my education in a practical and hands on way looked like the best option. And that is exactly what the MA Leadership and Management does.

I had a degree in Business Studies and the next logical progression route was a professional qualification or a masters level degree. However a Masters or MBA appear on the face of it very expensive and require a major time commitment. That is, until I found the University of Chichester MA in Leadership and Management. It is still a long term commitment, it still has a commitment to work hard and be very self-directed but, it is over three years. One day a month. And I can jump off at the end of each of those three years with a post graduate qualification.

What’s more, it was a ‘hands on’ course. All the assignments must be relevant and applicable to your job. This is even better. I need to manage a department, I have a team to lead, what better than to directly and immediately apply that knowledge.

I’m now 5 months in to the programme. 5 sessions that have included developing my knowledge in creating vision, objectives, strategy and change management. In additional to the directed learning, action learning sets that have been invaluable in helping me to understand myself and question what we have learnt in a facilitated, confidential group environment.

I am already applying my new found knowledge. I need to create a new strategy for my department and this has become the focus of one of my assignments. My personal journey has seen me read a number of contrasting articles on strategy and leadership, encouraging me to critically evaluate my thinking and the thinking of others. This has been especially useful when reading journals and books on leadership and applying this critical thinking to the workplace.

This is the course for me. This was the way for me to cement my knowledge in leadership and management and how to develop it further. It gives me the opportunity to advance my learning and knowledge in a practical and applied way to my work. It allows me the valuable opportunity to work on assignments during my working day as they directly relate to the work that I am currently doing. I am now on a respected, powerful journey to becoming a Master Leadership and Management enabling me to develop my career and satisfying my thirst for personal development."

As business environments become increasingly complex, strong leadership is ever more vital. Business leaders need to be equipped with a multi-faceted array of skills to be able to respond effectively to the challenges and opportunities presented by today's uncertain business world.

Our new Postgraduate Certificate in Leadership and Management is designed to enhance and develop your knowledge and skills in this area, by giving you a critical understanding of some of the contemporary theory, practice and research in this field and then challenging you to demonstrate originality in the way you lead and manage your teams and organisations.

It will be of significant value to you, whether you are already working in a leadership or management position, or seeking to take your career along that path.

Course detail

The course has a strong practical bias, so the leadership and management theories are taught in relation to the experiences of the participants on the programme. We use students' own case studies to enrich the classroom experience and encourage debate as well as drawing on the experiences of our tutors, who are all accomplished practitioners themselves.

You will develop the transferable skills that are vital to be a successful leader or manager today from creative problem solving, to understanding interpersonal dynamics at work, to leading with a strong sense of social responsibility. You will also develop valuable self-reflection skills that you can take with you, as you develop and progress as a successful leadership practitioner.

Modules

Compulsory modules:

• Leading and Managing People
• Personal Mastery in Leadership
• Principles of Change Practice
• Human Resource Management in Organisations

Students will also complete one of the two following modules:

• Principles of Change Practice
• Leading Change

Format

We use a range of different teaching styles and activities to maximise the impact of the learning on this course, including experiential activities, group exercises, tutor-led and student-led discussions, and reflective exercises.

You will have high levels of autonomy, and be encouraged to share your own experiences and ground your learning in the realities of the workplace.

We will challenge your existing perspectives, encourage creative thinking, and develop self-reflection skills and much of the material will have direct relevance to your career and lifelong learning.

Assessment

A range of assessments are used across the modules. All aim to test your ability to link the theory to current practice, and link in to your personal and professional development needs. Each assessment includes a self-reflective element, with a mix of essays, portfolio development, case study analysis and mini-presentations. You will have around six weeks to complete your assessments after the end of each module.

Careers / Further study

Once you have completed the Postgraduate Certificate, you may have the option of progressing onto a Diploma or Masters in Leadership and Management.

The Postgraduate Certificate in Leadership and Management at Bristol Business School will give you the broad-based skills, confidence and insights you need to firmly position yourself as a highly effective business leader or manager.

The course is suited to those already working at this level, who wish to consolidate their learning and keep abreast of the latest thinking in leadership and management. It is also suitable for those looking to build a management level career.

Overview

Welcome to our Leadership and Management Programme which is aimed for all healthcare professionals. For those in clinical practice, an appreciation of leadership and management skills in the health care setting is increasingly important. This part time postgraduate award is focused on developing the knowledge, skills and values to enable you to practice more confidently and to become an effective clinical leader. The three modules have been designed specifically to enable you to think creatively and to challenge how healthcare services are currently delivered.

Modules 1 and 3 utilise a mix of teaching methods, including face to face lectures, small group discussion, case studies and on-line learning through the Keele Learning Environment (KLE).

Module 2 is an independent, practice based study, conducted in your own work environment and supported by a trust based supervisor. We encourage our students to consider publication of their findings if appropriate.

Course Aims

Good and effective leadership in healthcare practice makes a very positive difference to improving patient care.

By the end of the programme, you will:

• understand how organisations work and the challenges involved in leading and managing busy clinicians and establishing effective team working in order to deliver high quality care and bring about change as required

• be better informed about current and prevailing national health policy and how they work in practice

• understand how the NHS is funded and the key issues around commissioning arrangements and how care needs to be organised and delivered

• have acquired a range of leadership and management skills and have the confidence to apply these concepts in practice by engaging and empowering others

• have had the opportunity to study in depth an element of effective leadership in healthcare practice

Course Content

Module 1: Leadership and Management for Healthcare Professionals (15 credits):
This module will provide the foundation to the award; within it, we will explore both the theoretical background to leadership and management and the practical skills which you will require to be an effective leader in the present, challenging, healthcare environment. You will leave with greater insight into your own leadership style and impact on others, together with a deeper understanding of how the new commissioning arrangements will affect your service.

Module 2: Independent Practice Based Study (30 credits):
This module is a portfolio assessment of a workplace based project. You will negotiate with a personal tutor to draw up a personalised action plan and a programme of activity to design, carry out and evaluate a leadership project with direct impact on service redesign or patient care in your workplace.

Module 3: A choice of one of the following options:-
- Leadership for Patient Safety (15 credits):
This module addresses the need for health and social care professionals to engage more effectively with the factors that fundamentally affect the provision of safe, effective, and compassionate healthcare for patients. This is an online module comprised of activities, discussions, collaboration and assessments, so making combining work, home and study easier.

- Medical Education (15 credits):
Much of a doctor’s professional life is concerned with facilitating the learning of junior medical staff, as well as contributing to the education of other health professionals and patients. This module starts with a teaching the teachers course (which you may have already completed) and continues with a virtual learning environment online to enable you to study at a time and place more convenient to you, so that no further attendance is required.

- Following the Money: Finance in the National Health Service (15 credits)
This module will explain how the NHS is funded, consider alternatives used in other systems and develop a series of financial management techniques that will enable participants to better understand, and ultimately influence, the processes.

- Clinical Effectiveness (15 credits)
This module aims to familiarise students with the methods and processes of critical evaluation of the professional literature and how this may be applied clinically and as a self-learning model.

- Advanced Leadership: Community Engagement (15 credits)
The module will allow the student to develop the knowledge, skills and attitudes to effectively engage patients and the public in healthcare decision making.

- Contemporary Challenges in Healthcare Ethics and Law (15 credits)
In this module students will gain a high quality introduction to ethical and legal issues in healthcare and the knowledge and skills to enable further work on the subject.

Module 3: Independent Practice Based Study (30 credits):
This module is a portfolio assessment of a workplace based project. You will negotiate with a personal tutor to draw up a personalised action plan and a programme of activity to design, carry out and evaluate a leadership project with direct impact on service redesign or patient care in your workplace.

Teaching & Assessment

Various forms of assessment will be used including written assignments, observation and reflection on teaching practice, case based discussions, personal portfolios and a project report.

Additional Costs

Apart from additional costs for text books, inter-library loans and potential overdue library fines we do not anticipate any additional costs for this postgraduate programme.

The data centre sector is growing and is central to our daily lives. But there’s a shortage of data centre managers who can address the rapid change and complexity faced by the industry. Our course will equip experienced professionals with the knowledge and capability to meet the demands of data centre leadership.

Data centres are fast-moving, complex businesses that need decisive, knowledgeable leaders. Our MA course aims to give practising data centre managers the opportunity to develop and advance their leadership abilities.

While our MA includes technical elements, it’s not designed to be a technical course. Rather, it takes broad-based contemporary business theory and applies it to data centre management to help you apply your learning effectively and immediately.

As all of our students continue to work while studying, you’ll have the opportunity to look at your current work and past professional experience to consider how you can apply what you’ve learnt in practice. Together we’ll analyse historical and contemporary management theory, giving you a firm understanding of how it’s evolved, while challenging current thought on business and leadership issues.

Consolidating the breadth of philosophical and theoretical concepts of leadership with the essential underpinning theories of change, risk management, finance, general management and human resources management, our MA programme offers you the opportunity to apply generic constructs to your own data centre workplace.

By the time you graduate, you’ll have the ability to consider, and then apply, leadership and management principles in a number of ways, in line with your organisation’s needs and external demands.

Our lecturers are experienced practitioners with strong professional links. What’s more, our modules are developed with input from industry specialists so you can be sure they’re current, authentic and challenging. Specialists also provide guest lectures, case study material and advice on current and emerging issues for use as ‘provocations’ on our course.

Lord Ashcroft International Business School is one of the largest business schools in the east of England. You'll benefit from state-of-the-art teaching and learning facilities, including our Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) through which you can access study resources and help.

Careers

Like many organisations, data centres are experiencing a shortage of senior staff with contemporary and robust skills in leadership and management.

Our MA programme aims to assist those who are already working in managerial roles to develop relevant capabilities to address the current skills gap, to engage with personal and continuing professional development, and to advance their knowledge and application of leadership and management abilities. Developing capability beyond a technical role is central to sound leadership and management in all businesses, and particularly so in this area.

Finance for Non-Financial Managers
Sustainable Design for High Capacity Data Centres
Data Centre Infrastructure Management, Security and Disaster Recovery
HRM and Organisational Capability Development
Decision Making in Critical Services

Postgraduate Major Project

Assessment

You’ll be assessed through a range of written assignments, portfolio assessments and report work. You’ll be encouraged to explore the application of theoretical constructs to your own workplace through the use of contextualised assessments, online discussions, and tutor-lead activities.

- This is a 3 year programme
Please note that modules are subject to change and availability.
