PDA in Planning and Implementing Change
The Professional Development Award (PDA) in Planning and Implementing Change offers you the opportunity to develop your competence, knowledge and skills in planning and implementing change. The award has been developed through rigorous research involving employers, centres, and potential candidates of the qualification. The award makes use of the National Occupational Standards (NOS) for management as specified by the Council for Administration (CfA). It means that by doing the award you will be able to demonstrate that, in your work as a manager, you are able to operate in accordance with these national standards. Success in the award will mean that you will have proof that your work is up to the national standards. In this way you can contribute to your own future and to that of the organisation you work for.
This PDA will help you to progress to further management awards such as the full SVQ Management at Level 3, 4 or 5, depending on the management position you occupy and your experience as a manager. There is a related PDA to this one, PDA in Leading Change at SCQF Level 9. It focuses on the vision for change and innovation in the organisation. It complements this PDA and you may wish to consider attempting both of them if you have a suitable management role in your organisation.
The PDA in Planning and Implementing Change at SCQF Level 9 is made up of two mandatory Units:
- C5 Plan Change
- C6 Implement Change
Success in the award will mean that you will have proof that your work is up to the national standards. In this way you can contribute to your own future and to that of the organisation you work for.
This award 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.
