WelTec celebrates Master of Professional Practice Graduates

WelTec celebrates first Master of Professional Practice Graduates.

Mumtaz Parker Dalwai and fellow graduate Robert Nelson celebrated a special event last week. Not only did they each graduate with the Master of Professional Practice, but they were the first WelTec graduates who successfully completed the level 9 Masters programme with an endorsement in leadership.

“The information and knowledge I gained has helped me in my current role as Manager, Trainee Education Programs for the Royal Australasian College of Physicians,” says Mumtaz Parker Dalwai.

“I studied leadership and undertook my research, which is a component of the Master of Professional Practice, on employees’ perspectives of management communication practices in the Tertiary Education Sector. My employer was very interested in the research I completed and I have been able to apply my studies to the benefit of my organisation,” says Mumtaz.

For Robert Nelson, senior academic in the School of Business at WelTec and Whitireia the Masters has “opened my eyes.” Robert’s thesis focused on techniques for effective student conflict resolution. “The Masters validated my work over many years.” Robert has taught at WelTec for the past five years and was delighted to have the opportunity to complete the leading edge Masters programme.

“The Master of Professional Practice is very flexible with online learning and face-to-face tutorials. The programme provides students with the skills to be effective leaders of inter-professional teams,” says Robert.

Head of Social Services at WelTec and Whitireia Kendra Beri is thrilled to see the first graduates of WelTec with the Master of Professional Practice, which was launched in 2016.

“The collaborative approach of this Masters is evident in the overall curriculum design for the suite of post graduate programmes we offer in this field which also includes a Postgraduate Certificate and Postgraduate Diploma in Professional Practice.

“These qualifications are applicable to people from a broad cross-section including educators, team leaders and managers in the state and private sectors, and health and social service professionals wanting to further their skills of working in interdisciplinary teams. Graduates like Mumtaz and Robert have developed leadership skills and enhanced their knowledge in their chosen discipline,” says Kendra Beri.
