Who is this course for?
This module complements Professional Leadership and Personal Management I, and provides a range of insights and critical evaluation of leadership and management types and practices which can be applied into different organisational contexts.
Learning and Teaching
Topics covered include: How can we critically appraise professional leadership?; leadership formation; leadership ethics; as well as case studies in leadership and power; culture and leadership; and critical leadership development.
Coursework and Assessment
To award credits we need to have evidence of the knowledge and skills you have gained or improved. Some of this has to be in a form that can be shown to external examiners so that we can be absolutely sure that standards are met across all courses and subjects.
The students will be required to provide a written response to a leadership situation which either focuses on (i) new enterprise development, (ii) a change management situation or (iii) a not-for-profit organisation. This will take the form of a critical analysis which will draw on leadership and management theory and will be no longer than 3000 words. This will be accompanied by a poster presentation.
The most important element of assessment is that it should enhance your learning. Our methods are designed to increase your confidence and we try very hard to devise ways of assessing you that are enjoyable and suitable for adults with busy lives.
