We will share our programme, designed to enable NHS organisations to draw down the Apprentice Levy funding for clinical leadership and support place-based change.

LSBU is prototyping this programme with the Kingston health system, working together to establish the first Strategic Clinical Leadership Programme, which addresses the requirements of the NHS Long Term Plan utilising the Apprentice Levy.

Masters Leading Social Change

MA Leading Social Change 2019-20
Download the brochure (PDF File 590 KB) or for more information, email healthlab@lsbu.ac.uk.

“Leadership is becoming increasingly complex with a growing need to deal confidently with volatility, uncertainty, chaos and ambiguity” (Ghate et al 2013).

The Masters Leading Social Change aims to equip leaders in health, social care, criminal justice, third sector, clergy/faith leaders, community development, and education sectors to lead social change in an age of heightening complexity and disruption.

Increasingly, leaders in the field of social change are finding that traditional approaches are not sufficient for integration and collaboration between services and sectors to meet social need in a highly connected world.

The generators of need are now complex and interrelated. No one organisation can either meet need or solve social problems. Leaders are finding themselves in a new world of peer-based collaboration and interdependency.

Duration

Two years, part-time leadership programme. Workshops take place at LSBU and Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP), Euston Square, London NW1 2FB.

Participants

Leaders of Health and Social Care, community leaders who come to the Masters with a local social change programme which forms the application work.

Approach

This innovative degree offers both face-to-face and blended learning experiences. It is delivered using a mixture of workshops, online seminars, group discussions with other students, including a regular learning circle co-consulting group, and learning journey visits and immersions.

Learning takes place through reflective practice and inquiry, both in terms of the lived experience in the learning environment and application to the community or workplace. The highly participative nature of the workshops and groups enables students to experience collaborative leadership and peer learning, exchanging ideas and experiences with the group, and immediately applying new approaches and methodologies to practice. Students are exposed to examples of innovation and have the opportunity to expand their network of like-minded communities and people committed to social change.

The learning experience is enriched with a Social Change Grand Challenge unique to the student’s system/ community, which is agreed prior to commencement on the Masters Programme. This a complex social change issue the student is leading locally, that forms the focus for application of knowledge and skills. The course covers Advanced Systemic Principles and Practices, Research Methods for Social Change Inquiry and a Dissertation (traditional or journal article) on the Grand Challenge.

This course is aimed at leaders from both community and citizen leadership backgrounds as well as professionals. We expect this course to particularly appeal to people working in primary and community health settings.

Approach

This innovative degree offers both face–to- face and blended learning experiences. The degree is experiential, innovative, ground breaking and open to people who are making a contribution to change in systems with communities. It builds skills in effective collaboration through a combination of taught modules, experiential learning and the completion of a co-produced service change.

The highly participative nature of the workshops and groups enables students to experience collaborative leadership and peer learning, exchanging ideas and experiences with the group, and immediately applying new approaches and methodologies to practice.

Students are exposed to examples of innovation and have the opportunity to expand their network. Modules cover Innovating in Collaborative Systems; Core Concepts of Quality and Leading Systems Change Programmes. Assessment is varied and innovative playing to the strengths of a diverse student community.
