The Master of Professional Practice and Postgraduate Diploma of Professional Practice programmes create a safe, but challenging space focused on ‘being and becoming’ confident Christ-following professionals whose practice is research-informed. The learning experiences within the programme equip and enable participants to engage with research and reflective inquiry into their professional practice in order to improve understanding of that practice and increase its intentionality and strategic alignment with the biblical narrative and the idea of the Kingdom of God on earth.
