This course has been designed to cover eight key topics, linking theories of leadership and management together with workplace experiences, thereby providing a more holistic approach to learning. Delivery is through the provision of informal active learning sessions, which are intended to develop personal and professional leadership and management skills to enhance planning and delivery of services.

Discovery learning forms a large part of this programme and as such collaboration amongst participants to discuss core concepts and reflect on current practice is actively encouraged in order to create a more tailored learning experience. We will consider communication, motivation, delegation, team roles and theories of team development affecting the efficiency of teams.

Throughout the programme you will be expected to apply the concepts and techniques taught to work-related situations in order to enhance your learning.

This course has been designed to accommodate various learning styles and to allow participants to learn from group discussions and individual reflection on the current practice. The participants will be encouraged to implement learnt skills in their work.
