You can choose to undertake a single module as part of your Continuing Professional Development (CPD) or you can work towards a range of aggregating awards – Postgraduate Certificate, Postgraduate Diploma and Masters of Science. There are four core modules (the enquiring leader, developing self and others, contemporary issues in leadership and leadership in action) within the programme, research methods; preparation and planning and the dissertation are core modules for those wishing to complete to masters level. There are a number of optional modules, these will become available where there is demand.

The programme has been specifically developed to attract those who find themselves in leadership roles within the professional caring sector; health education, social care and the third sector.

Entry Requirements

Applicants will normally have a first degree or European first cycle equivalent. People without a first degree but with appropriate experience related to leadership are strongly encouraged to apply. We value the learning that you bring from your experiences. As the programme encourages learners to draw on their experiences of leadership, it is expected that applicants will have recent and significant leadership experience. However, this is not an excluding factor and applicants without this experience may be eligible to apply. Those with credits from prior learning may be able to gain Accreditation for Prior Experience and Learning.
