Course content

Canterbury Christ Church University, in partnership with Shared Service Architecture, has established the UK’s first postgraduate qualification for developing Public Purpose Collaborations. For example, Combined Authorities, City Regions, Health & Social Care, Blue Light Collaborations, Systems­Wide Transformations and back­office, or front­office, Shared Services.

This course provides you with the knowledge and skills to initiate and develop public purpose collaborations and shared service projects, whilst also giving you a valuable postgraduate qualification. You will become a skilled and valuable in-house resource, able to cascade your learned skills across colleagues in collaboration activities and reduce or negate the necessity to pay for external consultancy on projects.
