There are three separate stages in our Postgraduate Coaching and Development programme, including the Postgraduate Certificate (PgCert), Postgraduate Diploma (PgDip) and Masters (MSc). You can enter the programme at any stage, depending on your qualifications and experience. Completion of each stage enables you to continue to the next, with or without a break, in order to graduate with a full Masters degree.
Here are some routes our graduates have pursued:
* business development
* consultancy work
* health sector
This final Masters element of the programme includes research methods training through a combination of campus-delivered and distance learning to enable you to develop a research proposal as the basis for completing your final research-based investigative project/dissertation.
The unit in research methods will specifically cover the theory and application of research methodologies and consider concepts of quantitative methods and their use in organisational research.
Teaching and Assessment
Our friendly and supportive environment uses formal lectures and seminars to provide the basis for the development of relevant knowledge, further enhanced by activity-based case studies. Using these case studies youll analyse complex problems, explore the uncertainties involved, evaluate possible solutions and plan their implementation.
How are you assessed?
Assessment consists of a 3,000 word research proposal leading to a 12,000 word Investigative Project/Dissertation allowing you to pursue a topic of personal interest which may directly relate to future employment.
