Continuing Professional Development (short course)
Module level: 6
Module credits: 30 credits
Study the theory and practice of leadership and gain the skills to become a facilitator and motivator of change in your workplace.
Effective leadership is essential to providing high-quality care delivery. Staff morale and motivation, retention and recruitment, professional development, quality improvements, service efficiency and effectiveness all depend significantly on the style and quality of leadership.
On our short course, you'll be able to examine leadership concepts, models and theories in general terms and evaluate them with respect to their application in health care delivery. You'll also develop your ability to better assimilate the components of the NHS Plan under the umbrella of clinicall governance into your practice.
We expect students to undertake approximately 300 learning hours to complete this module, including tutorials, literature review, professional development, web-based activities using our Virtual Learning Environment (VLE), and the development of your assignment.
If you require NHS contract funding for this course, please speak to your manager before applying.
Our course is open to practitioners in the field of health and social care with the necessary qualifications or experience.
The Faculty of Health, Education, Medicine and Social Care is the largest in ARU, with over 7,000 students. Our Faculty is teeming with expertise and primed to meet the demand for creating health professionals, teachers, doctors, scientists and educators for the three districts we serve: Chelmsford, Cambridge and Peterborough.
We have been training undergraduates for professional roles for over 25 years, with a reputation for quality, dedication and ambition balanced with student satisfaction.
We know that to give our students the very best experiential learning, prior to getting into the workplace, simulation is second to none, for safe, realistic, learning environments. We have invested heavily in purpose built simulated wards, science labs and skills space, to support or students through their learning.
