The ability to lead and manage effectively is highly sought after by industry, as employers seek to produce and develop managers who can motivate, enthuse and build respect throughout their workforce. The hard and soft skills required by leaders and managers are frequently highlighted by employers as skills gaps in recruitment. Developing these skills will help students to meet career aspirations in leadership and management.

The aim of this course is to help students to understand the difference between the function of a manager and the role of a leader. Students will consider the characteristics, behaviours and traits that support effective management and leadership. Students will learn about the theories that have shaped the understanding of leadership and management and how these have provided a guide to action for managers and leaders who want to secure success for their businesses. Students will look at leadership styles, how and why they are used and the extent to which they are effective.

This course also gives students an understanding of motivational strategies. They will develop motivational strategies covering intrinsic and extrinsic aspects of motivation. Finally, students will evaluate the importance of managing performance in achieving continuous improvement.

By the end of this course a student will be able to:

  1. Examine leadership and management theories and principles, and their impact on the effectiveness of an organisation.
  2. Review the influence of different leadership and management styles on the culture of organisations.
  3. Develop a motivational strategy to optimise organisational performance.
  4. Apply leadership and management approaches to managing performance to ensure continuous improvement.

There are no formal prerequisites or qualifications required to enroll. Here are a few things to keep in mind:

  • As the course is conducted entirely in English, we recommend that learners have a good grasp of the English language, both written and spoken, to gain maximum benefit.
  • Since this is an online course, you’ll need a computer, tablet, or smartphone with internet access. Familiarity with basic computer skills would be advantageous.
  • While you can learn at your own pace, dedicating consistent time to the course will help you understand and retain the material better.

              Registration process:

              • Based on course settings, students might be requested to fill in an application (online) and provide us with correct information about themselves before being able to proceed with the course.
              • We will contact you by email if we need more details after submitting your application.
              • After approval, you can proceed with payment and start the course.

              Materials are organized under different lessons. The lessons consist of self-study contents including reading-texts, practical activity, assignment and quizzes in which students can engage and learn.

              The course has supervisors and instructors; they are available online to support students by answering their questions or explain different topics to them. This will be managed under discussion section, forums, direct contact or by online meetings.

              When student successfully completes all lessons, quizzes and pass assignment, he/she will be offered a certificate.

              The Course is available as an individual course or under Pearson Qualifications (HNC/HND) in Business. The price will be updated based on the selected option. The individual course fee is higher because Awarding Body applies higher fees for individual enrollment. At the same time, a discount will be automatically added when you order HNC/HND in Business or if you’re already enrolled under these qualifications.

              Courses awarded by Next Gates have no discount, and the fee is already reduced.

              * Note that prices don’t include VAT. Additional fee might be applied at checkout.
