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.
