Course summary

The programme is designed to provide opportunities for aspiring and existing leaders to explore and expand understanding of leadership as it relates to a number of organisational settings.

For aspiring and existing leaders in various professional settings, the programme will provide a framework for leadership development which takes account of the circumstances generated by changes in social and economic conditions and by policy affairs and external forces. Participants will:

  • extend their knowledge and understanding of leadership and management theory
  • link theory to practice in their role or aspirant role
  • engage in critical reflection on their own practice by analysing critically evidence and arguments to support professional judgements in complex and sometimes ambiguous situations
  • enhance their skills to lead improvement in professional settings (including education, social services, nursing, other caring agencies and the police)
  • frame enquiries into practice to make an informed contribution to current professional debates
  • work towards, and demonstrate competence against, a range of professional Standards

By providing a flexible programme of modules, the programme will:

  • show how research generates different perspectives on professional knowledge
  • enable participants to gain a deeper understanding of a range of theoretical approaches and how these can be applied to improve professional practice
  • facilitate the generation, leading and evaluation of change solutions in a variety of practice settings.

There are many opportunities at the University of Aberdeen to develop your knowledge, gain experience and build a competitive set of skills to enhance your employability. This is essential for your future career success. The Careers and Employability Service can help you to plan your career and support your choices throughout your time with us, from first to final year – and beyond. Students can progress into the MSc after successful completion of the PgCert and PgDip.
