University of Westminster

Course Introduction

This course is designed for people in employment in leadership and management roles in the health and social care sectors and also in relevant third sector organisations, social enterprises and private sector companies. Most students on the course will be sponsored by employers and, where there are sufficient numbers, will undertake the course in work cohorts. The course can be built up from a post graduate certificate to diploma and finally the MSc. You can register for any of these three awards and continue or step off as required at each stage depending on your own circumstances. It is our intention to apply to have the Certificate, Diploma and Masters awards approved as Continuing Professional Development courses by the College of Social Work for those students who are Registered Social Workers.
