Postgraduate Diploma in Organisational Learning
Apply now to start in January 2023
Organisations must learn more now than ever before in order to overcome and respond to the challenges faced by increasing competition, digitisation, hybrid working and alternative models of work as well as shifts in consumer demands. Learning organisations are built from employees adept at creating, acquiring and transferring knowledge. This results in organisations that cultivate tolerance, encourage open dialogue and think holistically and systemically. As organisations adapt and change to reflect both post-pandemic and technology-driven work practices, how organisations think about learning will be central to talent strategy and sustainability.
The Postgraduate Diploma in Organisational Learning takes a system-level perspective to a learning organisation. The Postgraduate Diploma in Organisational Learning is designed to support you in exploring relevant organisational and leadership questions relating to change and transformation. This course will enable you to understand the fundamental principles, challenges and opportunities of organisational learning from applied and theoretical perspectives. You will be designing your lens through research questions and an approach to data collection that will help you and other practitioners gain a deeper understanding of organisational dynamics and variables, whether that relates to people or processes. Throughout the programme, you will discover concepts and think about how these relate to your context. The focus of development on this programme is on your skills and behaviour around the subject of organisational learning so that you can create impact and sustainable positive change within your own context.
