LEARN MORE ABOUT THE COURSE
The Diploma of Leadership and Management is a more demanding course, designed for those who already have some years of work experience in business or admin or junior leadership roles, who may now be ready to step up to a promotion or take that higher-level job. You could start this course as an entry-level student, but you’ll need to be pretty keen and committed, as a lot of the material will be new to you. But don’t panic; if you get stuck, we’re here to help you through.
As this is a higher level, your expected answers to assessments should match the increased depth and breadth of the content. This is a highly respected qualification - and will take pride of place on your resume. It tells an employer that you have the skills, knowledge and ability to control high-level projects.
Pride. Confidence. Recognition. Skills & Knowledge. Firstly, you’ll learn how to develop strategies, operate projects, manage and delegate to others, and work to time and budgetary deadlines. Secondly, and perhaps more importantly, you’ll develop confidence in your abilities, and you’ll take pride in achieving this qualification. It’s not easy - and nor should it be - but you will earn status, ability and recognition for being a top-level Manager.
In this course, you can learn how to manage and lead a team. Feel comfortable to try a few things, get some more feedback from our Mentors, and then become really good at this before you take on the role. Or, if you have the experience, but not the qualification, then this is a perfect way to get the recognition you deserve. Then, you can then talk to your Manager - confident in your new, recognised abilities from your Qualification - and ask for that promotion, pay rise or both!
This course is a higher-level one, which means you’ll be at (or near) senior management. With some good experience, this qualification will prove and complement your skills. Some of our graduates head down these paths;
Human Resources Manager
Customer Service Manager
You’ll naturally get credit for what you do in this course. Upon completing a Diploma of Leadership and Management, you can continue your studies through the Diploma of Business. The credits you earn in this course can count towards further qualifications, which means it’s quicker and cheaper to advance to higher qualifications.
Don't just take our word for it
Listen to one of our previous students, Tarek, talk about the 3 main reasons why he thinks you should study at Edmund Barton College.
1) Affordable courses that are all AQF (Australian Qualification Framework) certified.
2) An amazing system that allows you to study in your own time. The harder you study- the faster you complete your course.
3) An excellent support system that gives you the help you need.
