Developed in conjunction with the North East Chamber of Commerce, this award-winning foundation course is designed specifically for people in full- or part-time employment. You require the support of your employer, and on completion you can progress to a one-year honours degree top-up programme.
You develop relevant, practical skills for the real world and study topics such as managing finance, people and change, critical thinking and problem solving, quality and operations management, and enterprise and leadership.
What you study
This degree aims to develop relevant and practical skills in leadership and management so that you can make a real and immediate contribution to an organisation.
Each module is delivered over a period of approximately eight weeks, in three phases:-
- A preparation week where you undertake directed learning in your own time, as specified by the module leaders, and supported through on-line materials, including access to the extensive University library resources.
- A two-day masterclass to be held at the Teesside University Middlesbrough or Darlington Campuses, which includes guest speakers, group activities, applications in the workplace and work-based learning.
- A period of approximately six weeks, during which you will prepare, complete and submit your assignment for the module, supported by your tutor and the on-line resources, with key opportunities to reflect on the application of your learning to your own workplace.
How you learn
As well as developing core skills and understanding based on national benchmark skills in leadership and management, there is a strong focus on developing those skills which increase personal effectiveness, for example communication and team skills. Much of the learning is based in the workplace where you can apply your learning and work on real problems.
How you are assessed
Emphasis is placed on work-related assessment and work-based reports, but we recognise the need for a wide range of assessment methods. In most modules, you need to be able to apply the assessment to the subject area and your workplace.
This degree will be of great value in terms of personal and career development in any organisation. On completion of the programme you have a number of options in terms of topping up your award to an honours degree such as the BA (Hons) Business Management. You will have the opportunity to discuss progression opportunities, personal and career development issues.
You're expected to have five GCSEs including English and maths (grade C or above), or at least three years' supervisory management experience.
