The BA (Hons) Leadership and Management Skills for the Workplace is designed both for progression from the Level 4 Certificate of Higher Education Skills for the Workplace and for credit transfer from other business related programmes.
Successful completion of studies on the Cert HE Skills for the Workplace will enable learners to progress straight into Level 5 of this degree programme which follows a similar pattern of flexible delivery as the Certificate, being delivered with discrete modules, studied consecutively, with face-to-face tuition at a convenient community location.
This programme complements the portfolio currently offered through the Faculty of Business and Management and can lead to further progression onto the extensive postgraduate suite of programmes offered both locally and via distance learning.
In terms of subject content, the title “for the workplace” reflects the contextualisation of each module to the personal workplace experiences of the learners. This project based, discursive approach to study ensures that generic theoretical models are consistently explored within a workplace context ensuring continued relevance to the needs of employers and career progression.
The curriculum content of the BA (Hons) Leadership and Management Skills for the Workplace has been carefully developed to provide a series of discrete 20 credit modules. Each module focuses on a key generic aspect of management and leadership capable of being contextualized to specific workplace experiences.
The modules can be studied in any order within the Level, with the exception of EMPL5001 Developing Workplace Critical thinking and EMPL6001 Emergent Leadership Skills for the Workplace which will always begin each new level of study and provide a contextual introduction.
In general terms Level 5 study focuses upon areas relating to business and management i.e.
Developing Workplace Critical Thinking
Developing Relationships and Workplace Achievement
Understanding and Engaging in the Customer Experience
