Course summary

The Strategic Leadership (Health and Social Care) is an innovative Masters course that caters for the educational needs of those in, or aspiring to be in leadership roles, with a distinct focus on leadership in challenging arenas.

Available to study on a part time or full time basis, this postgraduate qualification will develop effective, dynamic and creative leaders, in health and social care, as well as critical thinking practitioners who have the ability, knowledge and practical skills to influence at a local and strategic level. With this in mind, it includes one module on the 7 Questions, a decision-making tool widely used within the British Armed Forces to formulate a plan.

With its flexible delivery and multidisciplinary approach, the MSc Strategic Leadership programme will appeal to those working in professional organisations such as the NHS, Defence Medical Services and the third, public and private sector who wish to improve their competence and practice in readiness for operational and strategic leadership roles.

There are three exit points, so you can study for a Postgraduate Certificate; Postgraduate Diploma or the full Masters qualification in Strategic Leadership.

Assessment

Assessment will be driven by the specific learning outcomes of individual modules. Methods employed may include online discussions and reflection upon discussion threads, essays, reports, presentations, and portfolios.

Each assessment component within modules will permit development and demonstration of intellectual skills, and this will be one of the assessment criteria. Evidence of assimilation of conceptual elements of the course will be sought and a balance achieved between practical relevance and the ability to critically reflect on course materials and the wider leadership environment. The research module will be assessed via a summative assessment. The third year (MSc) will require completion of a project.

Careers

The MSc Strategic Leadership course will equip students with a range of knowledge and transferable skills that will benefit any modern/future working environment, thus improving quality of service. Graduates of this course will, with continued practitioner experience, become more skilled in strategic leadership techniques and have opportunities to tailor their practice to their professional requirements with special interest and enhanced skills.
