About the course

This course is delivered through monthly attendance, tutorials and e-learning and is the industry standard for the early professional development of aspiring and practising operational managers and graduates. It provides high-quality learning and development based on candidate needs and is designed to develop and refine day-to-day, operational, foundation level managerial knowledge and skills. The balance between the needs of the manager and organisation is achieved by the negotiation of an individually tailored approach.

The course operates on a flexible basis to suit both student and employer needs. Students attend monthly workshops at the College, access e-learning at a time that suits them and receive online and tutorial support.

This course is carefully linked to the requirements of NQF Level 5 Diplomas and ultimately a master’s degree such as an MBA. It also links to the requirements of chartered manager status.
