Course Details

The course is taught by experienced leaders, practitioners and academics from the field of leadership, service transformation and CYP Mental Health. It may also include young people with lived experience of mental health services, service improvement specialists and other colleagues from either the research field, business, health and care sectors or transformational leadership arenas. This allows students to engage with a diverse range of perspectives.

The course is made up of two modules that explore the theoretical basis of transformation and leadership and how they work in practice. The course is highly interactive and encourages the sharing of learning and the development of strategies around transformational change. It also focuses on developing the student’s leadership skills and reflecting on their own practice as a transformational leader.
