On completion of the course you will have developed an understanding of best practice in terms of managing staff performance and will have developed a range of skills to enhance your ability to routinely lead and manage staff. You will have increased your understanding of the behaviours and motivation of others, explored a range of tactics to engage staff and improved your own ability to manage staff performance.
Duration, attendance and delivery
The course usually lasts approximately 10 weeks. The blended learning structure consists of online learning, workshops, tutorials, self-study, reflection, application of learning at work and the completion of assessment tasks.
At the end of the course you will undertake an assessment. This is a work based assessment rather than a theory based essay. Typically you will be required to apply what you have learnt to your practice, evaluating concepts for their applicability and usefulness.
The assessment format may be a written exercise, in-class presentation, project report or another appropriate method. A written piece would be around 2000 words in length.
You will need to be in a work role (paid or unpaid) which allows you the scope to put the concepts learned into practice. There are no formal qualification requirements for entry; we assess suitability on each individual application.
