Current development programme areas include Leadership and Management, Professional and Personal Development, Training and Development, Project Management and Organisational Learning and Change. We have a unique blend of expertise in biomedical, medical, social science, organisational development and work based learning. Programmes lead to University accreditation if required. We don't have a fixed portfolio, we design programmes in partnership; here are some examples.
Internal partnership working and our links with industry have resulted in programmes such as Applied Bioscience and Business Management. External partnerships with NHS Trusts have resulted in an NMC approved inter-professional mentorship programme for Nurse Mentors.
For organisational, business and workforce development we can work with you to deliver change initiatives such as the Clinical Leadership development programme for 40 Ward Managers in Blackpool Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.
Our Postgraduate Negotiated Work Based Learning (NWBL) framework enables individuals to gain academic credit for prior experience, learning and achievement and achieve 'tailor-made' Masters Degrees based around work place agendas and projects.
We can facilitate team development with Action learning sets using skilled facilitators who can enable small groups to learn from each other as they work on real problems and implement solutions. We use Action Research to support work related research in order to diagnose issues, engage key stakeholders, prompt actions and find solutions to work place problems and we can develop Organisational Learning and knowledge management by facilitating and accrediting collaborative projects.
