This program is suited to people who have substantial experience in a senior management role and are seeking to enhance their leadership skills to progress their career.
If you oversee the work of others or have a specialised role in providing strategic leadership, are responsible for implement effective changes or improve organisational performance, this program will be particularly relevant.
One year (blended delivery).
The Advanced Diploma in Leadership and Management has been specifically designed to suit current workers and people who are unable to attend full-time study or daytime classes.
The blended-delivery mode allows flexibility around how and when learning occurs and includes interactive workshops as well as placing a strong emphasis on completion of structured, self-paced learning activities undertaken online. Blended delivery may include:
- face-to-face workshops that involve course instruction, and allow group-based interaction and activities
- one-on-one workplace visits to assist you in applying your learning in the workplace and ensuring assessment projects add value to the organisation
- structured self-study activities online which will allow you to further enhance your research skills, participate in online forums as well as providing structured opportunities for practice and application in your workplace
- facilitator support through workshops, email, online interaction and telephone.
You will be required to undertake self-paced learning (facilitator supported) in-between workshops via an online learning environment. If you are currently working, you will also be required to practise the skills and knowledge gained in your workplace.
This program has been developed in consultation with industry leaders and governing bodies. Industry professionals are members of our Program Advisory Committee and are committed to the ongoing improvement of this program to ensure that it remains relevant to your needs.
