Leadership and Management, Award (Virtual Classroom)

This flexible online course is designed to give an introduction to leadership and management for those aiming for or already employed in a leadership position and/or for those who are supervising employees.

The course will develop both an understanding of what it means to be a leader and the impact that leadership and management can have on individuals and teams within your organisation.

You will be asked to draw upon your own work and practice, becoming a reflective practitioner whilst developing the key skills to be a successful leader.

You are able to study this course online to fit around home and work commitments but with the support and expertise of a qualified online tutor.

The course will commence with a welcome webinar to give you an opportunity to meet your tutor and find out about how to access and navigate the system. Following this, the course can be accessed remotely through the digital platform with course materials, lessons and resources available to access at any time.
