Course Overview:

 As your management and leadership experience increases, so do the challenges and responsibilities involved. While much can be learned ‘on the job,’ there are many tried-and-tested techniques that can support you as you progress through your career, and you can learn these through effective management training.

We help you understand the roles and responsibilities of a middle manager, looking at the differences between management and leadership and the behavioural skills that will make you an effective leader in a modern organisation.

If you’re an experienced middle manager looking to build upon your existing management skills, the tools and knowledge learned on this course will help boost your success as a leader.

This programme builds upon the fundamentals of management. You’ll have the opportunity to complete an assessment for an ILD L5 Award in Management. We can also suggest a range of resources for further learning.
