The latest leadership techniques

Our leadership development programme takes your knowledge to the next level, applying cutting edge concepts to professional contexts.

You will explore current thinking surrounding issues from recruiting staff to developing a marketing plan.

Made to measure

We don’t offer cookie-cutter leadership development programmes. Instead, we tailor your learning to your own experiences and behaviours.

In discussions with your tutor, you will explore the way you lead a team, and discuss ways to adapt your approach.

Learning around your role

We make it easy for you to learn around your job. Flexible distance learning means you don’t need to take days off work or miss vital meetings.

You won’t have to spend evenings and weekends writing assignments, either. We keep assessments practical, with professional discussions and reflective pieces where you can demonstrate your progression at your own pace.
