This is a practical, professional and academic course in consultancy for experienced headteachers, LEA advisers and independent consultants.
The course is delivered in 2 day blocks and can be delivered to teams of LEA advisers and headteachers in their home base in the North West of England. Successful students on the Postgraduate Certificate can go on to complete a Masters in Process Consultancy. This involves further taught units and a dissertation.

This course addresses all the competencies within this national framework.
