Training Matters - PDAs - Individual Units (Strategic Leadership and Management / Change Management)

The PDAs in Leadership and Management are part of a suite of Professional Development Awards (PDAs) at SCQF level 6 to SCQF level 9 which have been developed under the SQA Design Principles for Professional Development Awards.

The Leadership and Management PDAs are in line with the others in the suite in that they all consist of two units. This means that they retain the benefits of being short and sharp while providing learners with the opportunity to develop specific managerial skills and capabilities.

The Leadership and Management PDAs are made up of a wide range of leadership and management units (both SVQ units and HN units), eg the PDA in Team Leadership and Management at SCQF level 7 contains over 50 optional units. Learners must achieve two of the units to successfully complete the PDA (one leadership unit from a restricted mandatory section and one other unit from the optional section). The wide range of optional units allows centres and learners the flexibility to choose the unit which is most appropriate for their situation.

The award is a developmental award and is designed to help participants achieve their full potential. The award will also be tailored to compliment all other leadership and development programmes within the organisation.
