What’s Covered in the Course?

Delivered remotely through our e-learning platform over a 12-week period, each pathway has three units to complete. During the programme, learners will also have access to your own leadership & management expert who’ll support them through two one-to-one sessions.

Managing People

Your staff may already be in a role that involves managing staff. However, to accelerate into a senior position at your business and become a leader, there are new skills they’ll need to develop. In this module, we’ll focus on areas such as developing staff and being able to recruit new team members effectively.

Self Management

Business leaders should know the best ways to manage themselves as well as the people around them. This module will cover areas such as effective time management, embracing new learning styles and also teaching your staff how to avoid time bandits and other types of distractions.

Building Relationships

Whether it’s developing strong bonds within a team or building a relationship with a key stakeholder, this skill is key for anyone looking to become a senior member of a team. Here, we’ll teach candidates how to deal with difficult situations, prevent conflict and become a solution finder within your business.

Financial & Budgetary Management

In this module, we’ll explore business finance terminology, and how financial and budgetary control is paramount in planning as well as monitoring and fulfilling operational and project strategies.

Although I am not far into the course, it has already taught me about myself. I’ve learnt so much more about self-awareness and communication that I didn’t realise about. It has made me reflect on me as a person. I didn’t know what to expect from the course initially and it’s given me time to reflect and understand how to change, adapt and be more effective as a Manager.
