Managing change M-level module – book now for June 2019

Our Managing Change M-level module is running again from the 10th to the 14th June 2019 on our Brighton (Falmer) campus.  The module is designed to help students, practitioners and managers develop insight and critical awareness of change management theories and frameworks and their application to the organisational setting in leading and managing change.  

The students’ practice settings and experience will provide the context for learning.

Teaching Strategies

Staff facilitating the sessions will utilise a range of teaching and learning methods specific to the topic being taught. These are intended to reflect and enhance the main learning outcomes.

The overall programme will therefore provide students with the opportunity to develop critical skills in change management via a combination of lectures and facilitated discussion.

Students have access to a range of study materials and resources via our Online Learning platform.

Topics Include

  • Perspectives on Leading and managing change from both the public, independent and voluntary sectors
  • Leading and managing change in complex and uncertain environments
  • Project Management; organising the change process
  • Use of Systems approach in managing change
  • Organisational Culture and its inextricable link to Leadership
  • Change models and their underlying philosophiesAssessment.3000 words essay.

    The assignment provides students with an opportunity to demonstrate wide reading, in-depth understanding and the ability to synthesize issues/arguments and theories that have been studied in the module.

    The assessment may be either a critical analysis of a planned change or retrospective analysis of a change that has already taken place in the work or organisational contexts. If the writer is to play (or has played) a key role in the change process this role needs to be included and critically analysed. Details of the assignment will be individually negotiated during the course of the module and will reflect the student’s needs and interests.

    Who can apply?

    Open to all health and social care professionals, for example Doctors, nurses, social workers, paramedics and paramedic practitioners, midwives, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, podiatrists and health visitors. International students and those wishing to study a one –off module at Level 7 can also apply.
