All of our professional courses have a practical, work-based focus. This means you have the opportunity to try out new tools and techniques learnt in the classroom before you take them back into your workplace and apply them for real.

We don’t take a one size fits all approach – you not only get the chance to network with forward-thinking, dynamic individuals who are committed to continuous professional development, but also benefit from learning how different techniques and approaches are applied in different organisational and industry environments.

Management Programmes

We offer a range of flexible professional management and leadership courses which are awarded by Professional Management Bodies. These qualifications are designed for managers and/or aspiring managers, to support the development of their leadership and management skills in personal development, leadership, management resources, information and performance, as well as customer and market awareness.Image result for online

You can select both the level of the qualification and its size depending on the number of modules taken and number of credits achieved. Management courses can lead to an award, certificate or diploma.

Study modes

Whether you want to study in a classroom environment, via a blended (virtual) learning environment or as a distance learning student we have something for you. Courses don’t just start in September, you can join us at different points in the year and you don’t have to study all year. You can pick and mix the subjects, length of time you spend studying, size of the qualification and where you actually want to study. Our flexible course offering means that busy professionals like you really can balance work, life and study commitments while improving your knowledge and skills to help you progress your career.

Experienced trainers and facilitators

All of our tutors have considerable practical experience, having worked in middle and senior management positions across a range of private, public and charitable organisations in the UK and abroad. They also have experience working as trainers, lecturers and facilitators across a range of courses and levels, and hold either a Certificate in Education or a Postgraduate Certificate in Education along with a masters or other higher level qualification in their subject specialism.
