Leadership and Management in Health and Social Care

The Open University

Course Information

The Leadership and Management in Health and Social Care programme offered by The Open University will help you develop the necessary knowledge and analytical skills, as well as providing an overview of the organisational, legal and policy contexts within which managers operate, focusing on the challenges and opportunities faced in this sector. Throughout the module you apply learning to real-life examples, developing evidence-based strategies for good outcomes for service users.

Following an online learning guide, you will work with a combination of print, online resources and audio-visual materials designed to get you thinking and to build your understanding and skills. You will be encouraged and supported to bring together core themes and ideas in a way that is relevant to you and your specific interests. You will be taught quickly and simply how to use ICT to access, analyse and communicate current issues, as well as going online to communicate with other students.

Vocational relevance

This module has been designed for people in health and social care working in frontline, administrative and leadership positions. However, you do not have to work in health and social care to take this module as it recognises the interests of those who are not in paid positions hoping to enter the sector or are working in voluntary roles, providing care to friends and families or using services.

Building your career in health and social care is addressed by content that draws from current policy imperatives and reflects employer expectations around skills, knowledge and understanding.
