PDA in Management
The PDA in Management at SCQF Level 6, offers you the opportunity to develop knowledge and understanding of fundamental principles of management and to apply them in a context relevant to you. There are no specific entry requirements for the PDA in Management at SCQF Level 6. However, it will help you if you already have some experience of taking management responsibility within a team or expect to undertake such responsibility in the future. The PDA is jointly certificated by SQA and The Chartered Management Institute (CMI).
The PDA in Management at SCQF Level 6 is a qualification in its own right but it will also help you to progress to further management awards such as HNC Management and Leadership. It will be suitable for you if you are currently in a management position or if you hope to take up a managerial post in the future.
The award consists of two mandatory Units at SCQF 20 credits. You must successfully complete both of them to achieve the PDA in Management at SCQF Level 6:
- F3XP 33 Managing Self and Resources
- F3XR 33 Working in a Team
The benefits of the award are that it will give you the basic tools that you need to function effectively in the managerial roles you will be expected to fulfil. It is a practical award and, wherever possible, learning and assessment will be based on your own experience either as a manger or of being managed.
The course is taught with a mixture of independent and guided learning. This means you must be able to attend a half day workshop in our training centre once a fortnight for a minimum of 5-6 sessions. In between these sessions you will have some research/study/assignment work. Assessment is ongoing and will take the form of written reflective accounts and observation in the workplace. This award should take no more than 3-4 months but this depends on the amount of time a candidate is willing/able to spend on the work. It is a practical award and you will be required to provide evidence to show that you can contribute to the managing of a task and working in a team.
