We believe that effective Leadership and Management programme development requires us to work flexibly within the guiding principles set out below.
The second is to ensure that the benefits of accreditation for prior learning and experience, is also fully realised and accumulated as academic credit.
Our programmes are developed and delivered to meet the requirements of the new Professional Capabilities Framework (PCF) which replaces the PQ framework and the experienced programme team will closely monitor developments and respond by ensuring that the programmes are updated to meet all relevant professional benchmarks at the earliest opportunity. We have received endorsement by The College of Social Work, which signals that that our organisation and programmes have been scrutinised and evaluated by TCSW, and meet appropriate quality criteria.
Our programmes are also validated against the universities’ nationally agreed quality assurance agency for higher education guidance and benchmarked standards
Aligning leadership programmes with wider organisational leadership strategies and development plans, crucially matches learning requirements to the underlying management model and needs. This principle is important to maximise the systemic impact of planned leadership development.
We have developed a framework which allows the student to build on previous learning and ultimately achieve a Masters level award, accumulating academic credits as they progress through the levels.
However, this focus is not simply about ‘self’ and recognises the importance and power of collective leadership , the ability and significance of systemic relationships but starts with self as an integral foundation to work upon.
