Course content

“Commissioning for Quality, Caring for People”

We've worked closely with senior NHS and Local Government Commissioning staff to develop this work-based, relevant applied course for staff working in or with public services. Designed with current practitioners in mind the course is a mixture of blended and face-to-face learning delivered around the needs of the individual and their employer.

This MSc Commissioning for Health and Social Care aims to provide you with a master’s level education in the concepts, theories, academic and practical skills that you will require to be an effective and efficient commissioner. The course offers a flexible approach to learning with options to study a module at a time or as a whole course.

You will develop a sound working knowledge of the principles and practice of commissioning for health and social care and the underpinning policy. You will develop valuable skills in communication and strategic leadership. You will also develop a wide range of inter-personal skills for effective use in multi-agency teams. There will be opportunities to take part in module activities with a wide range of professional and other key stakeholders and organisations involved in the commissioning process.
