Course summary

Overview

This programme draws on the experience of people who are securing change in communities through collaborative methods and relationships. Those who do this from an institutional perspective usually recognise this as a leadership role, but in communities the language of leadership is often alien.

People making a real difference in communities may have a history of volunteering or have a more explicit role as a community champion. This course is aimed at people coming from both perspectives. It is aimed at leaders from both community and citizen leadership backgrounds, as well as professionals.

We expect this course to particularly appeal to people working in primary and community health settings. It addresses the emerging need for new knowledge and practice in effecting change in collaborative health and care systems.

Employability

The context for leading social change is rapidly changing. The world of leadership is moving from a rational, deterministic approach, with expertise at the top and market-driven solutions, to a collaborative and networked future, where knowledge is distrusted and progress requires a relational approach.

In this emerging context, leaders focus on the collective rather than the individual, using evidence to inform decision-making, securing collective responsibility against a shared purpose, and taking an asset-based approach to emergent change. These leaders work as collaborators and partners, leading highly autonomous accountable teams that develop emergent responses to complex environments.

Students on the PGCert Systems Change are able to progress onto the Master Leading Social Change
