Description



The EnginE programme is offering taster modules linked to the Senior Leaders Masters Degree apprenticeship standards at no cost to eligible Lancashire-based SMEs in the Advanced Engineering and Manufacturing Sector


The Modules available are:

Creative Thinking:

Creative thinking is the ability to imagine or invent something new, and is a powerful skill in the work context spanning the spectrum of 'brilliant ideas' to 'better ways of doing things'. It can be closely linked to problem solving. This course will help you to develop your own abilities and also support you to develop a creative, innovative, culture in your team.


Developing Emotional Intelligence:

Emotional Intelligence (EI) is the ability to be aware of one's own and other people's emotions, to differentiate between different emotions and to use emotional information to guide thinking and behaviour. There are different perspectives on EI, including the work of Daniel Goleman who has linked it to self-awareness, self-management and the development of approaches for leading and working with others, for example developing insight and empathy.


Developing Resilience:

This Module acknowledges that modern day workplaces can be constantly changing and there are many factors that cause stress and prevent individuals maintaining high levels of performance and wellbeing. It looks at the concepts of workplace resilience as a tool to cope with modern stresses, providing students with an opportunity to build a strategy to improve their own resilience and resilience in others. It explores lessons learned from the science of positive psychology and other perspectives such as the importance of confidence, adaptability and purposefulness. The current themes around new age perspectives such as mindfulness, are critically analysed by looking at academic research and applicability of techniques to workplace practice.


Leading and Managing People:

This module focuses and the following skills:

  • Managing people for effective performance through the life cycle of employment

  • Managing day to day performance

  • Dealing with performance issues

  • Understanding individual’s motivation, personality, and behaviours

  • Developing appropriate, effective people management responses

  • Leading and developing your staff


Duration and attendance for each module

A single one to one workshop

The module then usually lasts 10 weeks.


Delivery

The delivery of each module is through our online+model for distance learning consisting of online learning, self-study, reflection, discussion and sharing learning with and from others, application of learning to your organisational context and the completion of assessment tasks. There is also the opportunity for students who value face-to-face workshops to attend optional themed workshops


Assessment

At the end of a module you will undertake an assessment. This is an applied work based assessment rather than a theory based essay. This means that typically you will be required to apply what you have learnt to your context at work, evaluating concepts for their applicability and usefulness.

The assessment format may be a reflective account, a project report, a presentation or portfolio of evidence; all being the equivalent of 2000 words in length.
