"Highly recommended to anyone looking to set out/just started in a career in leadership & management."

Holly decided to study this course as part of her professional development, and she found that having a booklet, as well as the option to answer questions online was really helpful. Since completing this course, Holly has been successful in applying for an IT role, and says that this course has given her the foundations to start a career in leadership & management.

'As part of my career development I wanted to learn some skills in leadership & management to allow me to apply for jobs in this area as they came up.'
'The course content was really relevant and I learnt a lot. It gave me food for thought and enabled me to apply some of the skills even though I wasn't in a management type role. Since completing the course I went on to apply for a leadership role in IT and was successful. I have now been in post for a year and absolutely love my job and have to credit this course for giving me the foundations to start a career in leadership & management.'
'I really liked having a physical book as well as been able to type the answers online rather than hand write. The tutors gave good feedback quickly and helped when I was stuck or didn't understand a question. I have completed an NCFE through a 3rd party provider and the online experience was terrible compared to the one I did through the University. Highly recommended to anyone looking to set out/just started in a career in leadership & management.'
