This professional development programme is part of a framework of awards which enables you to address your individual learning requirements and to reflect your individual or your employer's needs, while offering you the opportunity to gain a recognisable academic award. Read more
This professional development programme is part of a framework of awards which enables you to address your individual learning requirements and to reflect your individual or your employer's needs, while offering you the opportunity to gain a recognisable academic award.

Based on the principles of credit accumulation and transfer, the Professional Development Award framework allows you to negotiate your own programme of study and to gain a University of the West of England (UWE) qualification with the title Professional Development. Uniquely, you can choose from learning opportunities from within and outside UWE (subject to availability) to maintain, improve and broaden your knowledge and skills and to develop the personal qualities required in your professional life.

In addition to a compulsory UWE work-based learning project module you can negotiate a study route to meet your requirements, which will be assessed and allow you to accumulate the credits you need for your target award. These can be made up of a combination of taught academic modules, work-based learning and different forms of enquiry.

Course detail

The Award Framework allows you to use a larger amount of blended learning than you can on more traditional courses as it will allow for the acceptance of credit from other awarding bodies and enable the integration of short courses, CPD and experiential learning into the qualification.

UWE work-based learning project modules provide a means of assessing experiential and other non-credit rated learning. Further study to extend your knowledge and skills can be negotiated from within and outside UWE in the context of your specific professional and personal development. The different learning opportunities can be consolidated within your personal programme.

From an employer's perspective this programme could be a way of addressing skill shortages by re-skilling existing employees and meeting overall objectives of staff development. One of its advantages is that it could be tailored to provide a bespoke qualification addressing the specific needs of an organisation, whilst also offering a University award as an outcome which would be valued by employers and employees alike. We can also work with you to accredit your in-house training programmes so contact us to discuss your workforce development needs.

Format

There are no common pathways through the Professional Development (PD) programmes. Other than completion of the compulsory UWE work-based learning project module the content will reflect individual choice. You can choose taught modules from a wide range of UWE courses, as well as bringing credits obtained from other Higher Education Institutions, which UWE will assess and accredit to your award.

There is also the opportunity to achieve a bespoke award consisting of a number of focused work-based learning modules, based on your employment needs.

Assessment

Assessment for the work-based learning elements of the programme is carried out through coursework, which typically comprises reflective essays and interviews, and work-based projects. Assessment methods are used which reflect both the practical and applied nature of the programme. Assessment should include formative assessment of learning in context.

Assessment of more formally taught modules and modules for the assessment of experiential learning will use a range of approaches, negotiated between the academic facilitator, learner and the workplace.

This award provides an opportunity for practitioners and managers in a diversity of social professional settings to engage in substantial continuing professional development at Masters level, and in relation to complex and changing practice environments. Read more
This award provides an opportunity for practitioners and managers in a diversity of social professional settings to engage in substantial continuing professional development at Masters level, and in relation to complex and changing practice environments.

In a context of significant shifts in education, health and welfare services, professional enquiry is based on the idea that questions about direction and purpose ‘come with the territory’ of practice. Developing knowledge and understanding, using judgement in reflective, responsive and responsible ways, and an orientation to values of social justice, are all part of being an engaged and active(ist) professional at a time of great change and as we all, in different ways, think about how best we might proceed.

MA Professional Development and Enquiry challenges students to think deeply about their own professional contexts and settings, their place and role within this, and the possibilities for development, change, and generating practice knowledge and innovations. The award draws widely on (inter)disciplinary perspectives to think, and think forward, for practice.

We encourage applications from practitioners, professionals and leaders who might be working (or volunteering) in a diverse range of roles in education, health, social welfare/care, community, and other settings, and in the public, private, and voluntary or social enterprise sectors. We aim for an inter- and multi-professional student group on the award for the cross-fertilisation of knowledge, experience and expertise that can be brought to bear, and as it reflects complex challenges in practice and collaborative imperatives.

This award is part of the Manchester Met Faculty of Education postgraduate Professional Development Programme.

Features and benefits of the course

-Masters level continuing professional development tailored for your own context, priorities and interests, drawing on multi/interdisciplinary perspectives
-A multi-professional student group for the cross-fertilisation of ideas, collaborative approaches and working with difference
-Places enquiry and purpose at the heart of professional practice
-Flexible award structure and three starting points (October, February, June)
-Participation in a large, dynamic and forward-thinking taught postgraduate community
-Course design and delivery to fit with busy work, and other, commitments
-Possibility of accrediting prior experiential learning (APEL)

This MSc in Sustainability, Entrepreneurship and Design blends a core training in sustainability with design and business, such that our postgraduates can be leaders and entrepreneurs involved in shaping a sustainable economy for the future. Read more
This MSc in Sustainability, Entrepreneurship and Design blends a core training in sustainability with design and business, such that our postgraduates can be leaders and entrepreneurs involved in shaping a sustainable economy for the future. Practical-based professional development programme is designed to enable individuals to become leaders in environmentally sustainable enterprises - either as entrepreneurial new business owners, inventors or as change-makers in existing businesses.

The programme has a number of innovative features. For example:

- The fusion of environmental education with design, entrepreneurial and business skills.

- The programme will be affiliated with Blekinge (Sweden) University's MSc in Leadership for Sustainable Development, and offered with visiting lectures from this market leader. These will include those by Professor Göran Broman (founder of the Framework for Strategic Sustainable Development) and Professor Karl-Henrich Robért (Blue Planet Award winner and founder of the Natural Step - a global alliance centred around sustainability). Professor Terry Collins (Institute of Green Chemistry, Carnegie Mellon University, USA) will deliver programme material on green chemistry.

- Structural flexibility - so that the needs and desires of individuals can be met through offering optional modules within various themes relevant to sustainable enterprise (in the Business or Design Schools or in the Institute for the Environment).

- Practice based assessments - for example, the development of a detailed business plan for those who wish to start their own business, a product design for those taking the inventors route, or a research (PhD) proposal (for those eventually wishing to pursue a doctorate.

- Professional development activities - following the multidisciplinary learning programme, students will undertake a six month professional development activity in which - for example - they can undertake an internship or start their own business. (The provision of incubator space for these students will be an integral part of the MSc and is another distinctive feature of the programme. The students will also be equipped with pitching skills and a business mentor).

Compulsory modules

Introduction to Strategic Sustainable Development
Entrepreneurship
Business Planning
International Business Ethics, Sustainability and Corporate Governance
Sustainable Design
Professional Design Studio

The Professional Development (Coaching Science) programme is designed to allow coaches from all sporting environments to develop their practice and professional network by completing a range of portfolio projects negotiated in partnership with personal tutors from Hartpury College’s HE Sport department. Read more
The Professional Development (Coaching Science) programme is designed to allow coaches from all sporting environments to develop their practice and professional network by completing a range of portfolio projects negotiated in partnership with personal tutors from Hartpury College’s HE Sport department. Portfolio projects can be completed by individuals or may form a component of a group effort with coaches working together to investigate an aspect of personal practice before creating an output, such as a report or presentation, that can be published to the wider coaching community. These portfolios can therefore focus on part of the learner’s current workplace responsibilities or be used to plan future ventures directly linked to the coach’s environment and career progression plans.

This innovative approach to postgraduate study allows coaches to focus their research on a number of possible coaching contexts including teaching, coach education and supporting high performance athletes, and therefore to design their own powerful professional development experiences. Core coaching modules are studied alongside students completing the MSc Coaching Science programme, allowing valuable sharing of perspectives and resources across and amongst two related courses that each have individual development needs and group collaboration as their key concern.

All students complete three core modules that focus on the craft of coaching practice, and related areas of concern such as coach philosophy, language, behaviour and planning. Whilst involved in these key debates coaches will also be developing a personal learning plan via an appreciation of reflective practice. These experiences are collated in a Professional Development Portfolio with discussions amongst learning peers and with personal tutors central to this course component. Upon completion of the programme’s core modules students qualify for a Postgraduate Certificate and may choose to continue their studies via focused research into a single coaching context (perhaps due to it mirroring their current workplace or career aspirations) or through study of a broader range of topics, each negotiated by themselves and their tutor. Completion of this phase of the programme sees students eligible for a Postgraduate Diploma and able to carry out an extended final project that once successfully completed results in the award of a Master’s degree.

Module delivery will be supported by a range of student-centred approaches (e.g. distance learning and practice-based activities) and will include peer learning sets which could be face-to-face and/or supported electronically. The programme design team is committed to adult learning approaches that include the development of learning contracts and critical and independent enquiry for the coaching practice-based elements. Assessment methods reflect adult learning principles also, allowing students to shape and develop academic work that focuses on current coaching practice and personal development. Students will benefit from an enhanced learning experience by engaging in a variety of creative teaching mediums such as mentorship, peer modelling, reflective discussion, video observation feedback and experiments in practice.

The programme can be completed full time in one year; part time routes are available and should be planned with the Programme Manager.

The Professional Development Programme offers the individual practitioner or an organisation the opportunity to tailor make a programme of accredited study to meet the specific needs of themselves and the organisation.

For the individual the programme starts with a conversation about their journey so far and the directions they want to take. A plan to reach that destination is created exploring both the learning needs that emerge and results they want to achieve. This can also be linked to specific organisational objectives. The link between personal development and organisational results is such that frequently these programmes are funded by an employing organisation.

The programme can lead to academic and or professional awards and these are negotiated as part of the development of the learning plan.

For an organisation the process might include the development needs of the whole organisation or key teams within it. It starts with an analysis of needs and the creation of an organisational learning plan. A structure is put in place to support the delivery of the plan. The scheme can be linked to awards where required.

As this is a bespoke programme a learning conversation is the staring point for the relationship with PDF. We will advise on the best route forward, which includes introducing you to other organisations where they are best fitted to meet your needs.

A programme in Professional Development with the Leadership of Management is available.

This programme is unique in that it enables students to embark on a personal 'spiritual' journey, which incorporates all three facets of life: Mind, Body and Spirit. It will examine the challenge of successfully re-integrating these aspects into everyday life including your professional work.

It will question rationality and seek to develop integral non-linear methods. The programme will explore the study of consciousness and the transpersonal as well as the different aspects of spirituality, bodywork, meditation and breathwork.

You will be looking for transformation, expansion of thinking, self-discovery, personal growth, development of creativity and formation of new perspectives.

During the first two years there will be residential workshops, to enable you to explore deeper with others to support exploration of self. And in the third year there will be an opportunity to carry out your own research study.

This degree does not orientate participants in anyone particular direction but enables the student to seek 'their own path' through a 'transpersonal learning experience'. The main areas covered include transpersonal psychology, eco-psychology, emerging spirituality, consciousness’ studies, positive and humanistic psychology plus exploration into bodywork, breathe work and meditation studies.

We hope that graduates will see themselves and the world in a bigger perspective, with valuable skills and knowledge to advance their chosen field and be part of a possible paradigm shift.
