To do this you need to understand and evaluate the impact of the immediate and wider context on your role and be able to critically evaluate and develop the role itself. This module will be taught through a series of lectures, seminars, guided learning, independent study, group discussion and reflective practice. Your learning will be based around three areas of study: Professionalism: Critiques of theories of professionalism and professionalisation; stakeholders in professionalism; the role of knowledge and values; codes and competencies; professionalism in the context of workforce development; service modernisation and the knowledge economy. The Professional: Professionalism, managerialism, leadership and effectiveness; learning as a professional: professional development, critical reflective practice, learning from theory and practice. The Wider World: Reviewing the external environment, stakeholders, relationships with other services and organisations, policy and strategic directions in the environment, inter-agency working, developing mutual understanding and joint approaches to values, principles and directions, collaboration, competition and best value. This will include a brief introduction to the history of policy and structures of your sector with the emphasis on implications for the present and potential change and will consider the different evidence bases used in health and social care, bio-medical and other paradigms.

Course Studies in Business Studies in London in United Kingdom. This accredited course follows on the PRINCE2® Foundation course and provides an understanding of how the method works in practice. The course completes the coverage of the contents of Managing Successful Projects with PRINCE2®, the official manual of the method, which was published by the Cabinet Office (CO) in 2009. The CO's manual explains in its forward: "Today, complex projects often involve several organisations working together in partnership or through contractual agreements to achieve the objectives. PRINCE2® provides a common language between organisations and with external suppliers. It also allows a focus on the Business Case, providing a mechanism to define what the project is trying to achieve, and the rationale and business justification for it."

Course content The course is designed to put the PRINCE2® concepts into practice and to prepare for the test that leads to the PRINCE2® Practitioner certificate. The course begins where the Foundation course left off by going into more detail on each of the themes and processes that make up the method. By the end, the all-important fourth element of the method, which demands that the method is always tailored to fit the project’s environment, is explained and demonstrated. The topics covered include: overview of PRINCE2® the seven PRINCE2® themes the seven PRINCE2® processes tailoring PRINCE2® Teaching and assessment As the practitioner course follows on the PRINCE2® Foundation course, where the method, its philosophy and its terminology are introduced, it focuses on the more intricate aspects of the method. Based on a case study, the method is put into practice through a series of challenging questions that mirror the questions of the formal test. The course consists of a series of interleaved lectures and seminars, but this time the emphasis is on the seminars where the method is put into practice with the help of case studies. The lectures are designed to remind how the method operates while the seminars take on the principles and apply them to a well trodden case study. The comprehensive course handbook, containing all the course’s slides, which most students would have met in the foundation course, is used along with the case study which was also introduced prior to this course. By assuming familiarisation with the method, the course can proceed at a pace that helps the visualisation of the method’s concepts. Each seminar ends with sample multiple choice questions that prepare us for the certificate examination. Fees Fees include lectures, lecture materials, two sample examination papers and the examination. Entry Requirements The course is open to anyone with a PRINCE2 ® Foundation certificate. However, candidates should continue to familiarise themselves with the methods manual and study for around five hours before the first day of training. Study is also required between training days.
