University of Birmingham    School of Social Sciences

Part time September PGDip, Other 2 Years

About the course

Our aim at the University of Birmingham is to support you with the practical knowledge and understanding required for leading across a range of social care systems.

Drawing on theory, research, and comparative analysis of international health and care systems, this apprenticeship programme will provide you with a unique opportunity to develop the values and skills necessary for impactful leadership. These focus on the ‘building blocks’ of high-quality care: well-trained and motivated staff, efficient use of resources, a culture of improvement, and an ability to integrate care. Learners are supported to develop a community of practice with others from the social work and social care sector and to engage directly with senior figures from policy and practice.
