Practice-based Action Learning Sets (PALS)
A safe space to be brave
We learn by doing, and in the safe, supportive and challenging space of the small group Practice-based action learning set (PALS), you can reflect with others, push yourself and deepen your learning. Then, when it comes to making change happen in the real-world, you can apply yourself to the best effect.
Tune-in and deepen insight
Available live and recorded to fit around your schedule, the Masters (MA) in People and Organisations is delivered in-part through a suite of in-depth webinars. Evolve your Critical Thinking, Critical Writing and Artful Skills, all of which will form the foundation of your fresh approach to issues in Organisation Development and Change.
Develop a key leadership skill
Learn how to be at the centre of your own learning. Define your own research questions, determine your approach, achieve your own goals and assess your own performance. As part of a supportive community of faculty, peers and your Masters cohort, you will be driving your own growth and managing your own development journey.
Acquire real-world experience
Deliver a real piece of change work in a different organisation or team to the one in which you are normally based. Formulate a Practice-based Learning Question, reflect on your own learning, and develop your consultancy, facilitation, and leadership and management skills, as well as your overarching understanding of contemporary, personal and organisational change.
