    Where will this take me?


    Research shows that undertaking leadership training early in an individual’s career can positively influence their leadership skills at every level of an organisation. We also know that management and leadership skills are most effectively learned through structured or formal programs, which integrate problem-based projects.

The integrated problem-based projects that are offered as part of this course align with investigations which indicate that management and leadership skills are most effectively learned through structured or formal programs. The research also suggests that undertaking leadership training in the early stages of career progression allows individuals to confidently seek and perform leadership roles and have a positive influence on their organisation.
