The Management Development Programme has been developed to match institutional needs, by engaging managers in development activities that encourage strategic thinking to foster business improvement.
As the M.D.P. is a part-time in-service programme, we require confirmation from your Head of Department or line manager that they support your registration. It is important that this support recognises the time commitment required for successful completion of the M.D.P. and enables you to fully engage in the development sessions.
The programme runs over a 6 month period and includes the completion of two written reflective assignments. Successful completion of the programme and assignments leads to an Institute of Leadership & Management (ILM) level 5 accredited award.
