‘The University of Stirling acknowledges and welcomes the professional work undertaken by FIOR in the development and delivery of the Diploma in Integrated Emergency Management and recognises the high quality learning and teaching experienced by students on the programme.
The Diploma represents a theory informed and practiced focused response to the Scottish Government’s strategy for dealing with emergency situations. Risk management, emergency planning and business continuity have become increasingly important responsibilities for senior managers across the public, private and third sectors, and this award goes some considerable way towards addressing these emerging developmental needs. As such, the School of Education at the University of Stirling is happy to recognise the successful completion of the DipIEM and grant students 30 master’s level (SCQF 11) credits on admission to the MSc in Professional Learning and Leadership.’
