In conjunction with its established learning development partner Perpetuity Training, The Security Institute is now set to introduce a Level 7 Advanced Diploma in Security Management via the distance learning route.
The new Diploma is targeted at Master’s Degree level and specifically designed to benefit those wishing to take their professional development to the highest levels within both The Security Institute and the security profession in general.
The Level 7 Advanced Diploma in Security Management is delivered by the distance learning method and takes around nine months to complete. Assessment is conducted by way of three written assignments, the third of which is focused solely on a security management topic of the learner’s choice. This arrangement allows the learner to produce a high level body of work that’s of direct relevance to their own organisation. It’s a move that will prove to be of considerable value to employers.
The written assignments are completed as part of three modules (as follows):
*Critical Thinking and Critical Writing Skills
In the first module, learners will study critical thinking and writing skills. The assignment will be based on conducting a critical analysis and review of a security, policing or crime-related report. This particular assessment runs to 1,500 words.
*Research Methods and Project Proposals
Here, learners will study security research methods and project proposals. For its part, the assignment is based on creating and submitting a project proposal. That proposal will form the basis of the work undertaken in the next module. Again, the assessment here will be 1,500 words.
*Conducting Research and Projects
For the final module, learners study how research projects are written (including the presentation of findings). Learners will then undertake a security research-based project and submit their completed research report as the final course assessment.
Commenting on this educational development, David Thorp – managing director at The Security Institute – told Risk UK: “Perpetuity Training has been our training partner since 2007 and, across the last eight years, has excelled in providing training to large numbers of security professionals. This has resulted in those professionals achieving a BTEC Level 3 Certificate and/or a BTEC Level 5 Diploma in Security Management. I’m confident that this new Level 7 Advanced Diploma will prove to be hugely popular. Undoubtedly, it takes The Security Institute’s qualifications to the next level and meets a definite demand exhibited by higher stratas of the security profession.”
Ken Livingstone, managing director of Perpetuity Training, added: “We appreciate that security professionals have to carefully plan how they spend their precious time, which is exactly why we’re offering the Level 7 Advanced Diploma in Security Management as a distance learning course. The Diploma affords learners the advantage of being able to study from anywhere in the world and acquire a significant career-enhancing qualification.”
