LOCSU’s Leadership Skills for Optical Professionals course is part of WOPEC’s MSc programme at Cardiff University and is an excellent learning and networking opportunity for optical professionals.
There are 10 funded places available for LOCs for 2021 and the deadline for applications is Mon 11 January 2021.
The course provides an excellent opportunity for optical professionals to enhance their career and past courses have produced many successful candidates who are now leading the development of primary eyecare services in LOCs as LOC Officers, in PECs as CGPLs and in Local Eye Health Networks.
This course is designed to enable the practising optical professional to become an effective leader at local and national level within the optical sector through the support and development of LOCs and LEHNs, building effective strategic networks, influencing policy makers and enhancing eye health services for patients.
It provides an understanding of current leadership models and theoretical approaches and will give delegates the background knowledge and practical skills that will equip them to provide leadership in the optical sector.
