Whether you’re just starting out in your professional career or looking to take the next step up the career ladder, this course will help you build your confidence through a greater understanding of what’s needed from a leader in today’s workplace.
This course will draw on both academic concepts and own experiences to consider areas such as:
- definitions of leadership
- leadership styles
- performance management
- organisation structures
In addition, the course will encourage candidates to self-reflect on such topics as
- personal brand
- different communication styles
- the ability to reflect on our actions and experiences
- continued professional development (CPD)
You are not expected to possess any existing business knowledge, but you will be expected to openly share your ideas and experiences.

From the course leader
“Students get so much more value out of interactive courses where, as well as learning what the research says, they are also asked to reflect on their own experiences. We will be using virtual meeting technology to ensure these perspectives are shared and discussed. While we can’t possibly hope to cover everything needed from leaders on this course, we cover the basics and get students thinking about what their own leadership journey might look like. As a result of this course, previous cohorts have reported higher confidence in both their knowledge of the topic and their knowledge of their own strengths. I hope you experience the same.”
