Some preparation is required for the workshops, enabling you to come prepared to take an active part in group discussions and increase the value of the workshops. You will also be encouraged to carry out further reading and apply what you have learned in the workplace in preparation for the reflective review at the next workshop.
There are no formal entry requirements for this qualification. This programme is suitable for anyone who is a junior manager, supervisor or aspiring manager. Although you do not need any previous qualifications, to fully benefit from the programme, it is recommended that you have a level 2, or equivalent, in literacy and numeracy.
Each unit is assessed through the completion of a bite-sized assignment of approximately 1200 words. These short, regular assignments are a fantastic way of checking your progress throughout the course.
