This qualification reflects the role of individuals who are engaged to manage the work of others or to add value to or review management practices. Their role may be in any industry or organisational setting.
Typically people in these roles will have considerable experience in their respective industries or vocational areas and couple an informed perspective of the specific work requirements with their managerial approaches. The Diploma of Leadership and Management requires a sound theoretical knowledge base and managerial competence to plan, carry out and evaluate own work and/or the work of a team. AbSec Learning and Development Centre has tailored the course to apply particularly to serving Aboriginal families and communities.
Completion of this diploma provides up to one year’s credit into relevant degree courses offered by our partner, Southern Cross University.
Prior completion of the Certificate IV in Leadership and Management or Certificate IV in Business, or vocational experience in a management or supervisory role is preferred but not compulsory.
We are offering this course for people currently employed in the community sector, either as team members or managers, and interested in expanding their leadership and management skills. Part of the course will consist of on-the-job learning at your workplace.
We hope to offer this course in the near future for people not currently employed in the sector. Please join our mailing list (available on the homepage) to receive our updates.
