This module encompasses the development of leadership and management at all levels ranging from first line to senior managers and draws on the established body of knowledge and theory in both leadership and management and learning and development, in addition to the growing body of specialist knowledge in leadership and management development. The course will enable learners to develop a critical understanding of the complexities and contested nature of leadership and management and the contextual opportunities for development. It will enable learners to develop a range of personal and professional skills associated with the development of leadership and management strategies to facilitate organisational development and change. The course requires learners to reflect critically on theory and practice from an ethical and professional standpoint and provides opportunities for applied learning and continuous professional development.
