The Postgraduate Certificate in Leadership and Change is a part-time blended learning (90% online) course and a FREE* Springboard+ programme (Eligibility and entry requirements apply. Government funded Springboard+ programme). Offered by Chevron College in conjunction with its academic partner, the University of Sunderland, this programme focuses on participants’ personal, professional and academic development needs and their ability to engage in transformational learning and change.
This course has been designed to help you develop your skills and become a better leader. You will learn how to recognise and apply the theories related to effective management, leadership, and change management.
Study is part-time through blended learning (90% online). Online delivery is supported by an induction day at the beginning of the programme. The informative live webinars (7pm-9pm every Tuesday and Thursday) will aim to develop participants’ ability to apply knowledge and understanding of business and management to complex issues, both systematically and creatively. Participants will attend 5 interactive group sessions (Saturdays). These sessions facilitate discussion and debate and promote the transference of skills and knowledge into the workplace and explore the workplace of the future, with guest lectures contributing to these important workshop sessions.
Acquire key knowledge and skills
Teaching is delivered through a mix of lectures, interactive sessions and role playing; directed reading, which will involve reference being made to course texts, journal articles and websites; web-based discussion forums and activities; personal development planning related to personality profile analysis; researching and compiling individual presentations for contribution to group discussions to stimulate action learning.
You will be assessed by one assignment and will draw upon the learning gained through the module integrated with your work-based development. There are two parts to the assignment, which are designed to complement one another and to test and evidence your professional and practical development journey.
