On completion of the course you will have developed your understanding of a range of approaches to leading others through times of change. You will have developed your ability to understanding how to engage and influence others and how to take into account different individual’s responses to change. This learning will enhance your own capacity to lead and manage people through change.

For those interested in further development opportunities for working with change we also offer the following courses to enhance and complement your learning:

Duration, attendance and delivery

The course usually lasts approximately 10 weeks. The blended learning structure consists of online learning, workshops, tutorials, self-study, reflection, application of learning at work and the completion of assessment tasks.

In 2016/17 we are transforming our courses to enable us to offer them all by online+ so you may be able to complete your course fully online. Contact us to enquire whether this course is now available via online+.


At the end of the course you will undertake an assessment. This is a work based assessment rather than a theory based essay. Typically you will be required to apply what you have learnt to your practice, evaluating concepts for their applicability and usefulness.

The assessment format may be a written exercise, in-class presentation, project report or another appropriate method. To give you an indication, a written piece would be around 2000 words in length.

Entry requirements

You will need to be in a work role (paid or unpaid) which allows you the scope to put the concepts learned into practice. There are no formal qualification requirements for entry; we assess suitability on each individual application.
