Course summary

What is special about this course?

It is acknowledged that the development of resilience within organisations is a key priority and a mainstream business function. It is critical that organisations are equipped to build resilience into every aspect of their operations ensuring their ability to function fully, meet stakeholder needs and maintain the required level of service.

Organisations face constant challenges from both external and internal environments and need managers who are able to deal with this appropriately. This can be achieved by understanding the importance of resilience while planning and executing suitable strategies.

This new PgCert Resilience Leadership and Management will provide those working within a resilience context a meaningful and contextual continuing professional development (CPD) award.

You will be introduced to the concepts of resilience in a UK and wider context and develop a critical understanding of legislation as well as theoretical models and tools. You will reflect on the tensions between planning to be crisis prepared, and the realities of managing an actual crisis. Integrated emergency management philosophy is key to managing resilience and this is explored in depth enabling you to apply this to your own context.

The programme also explores key theories of leadership and management and allows for reflection of your own practice through different perspectives. A further key element of the programme is the module focusing on managing cyber risk. This is designed to provide you with an understanding and deeper knowledge of how institutional cyber resilience is improved using established communications, leadership and management frameworks.
