This course is delivered through monthly workshops, tutorials and e-learning and is the industry standard for the early professional development of aspiring and practising operational managers and graduates. It provides high- quality learning and development based on candidate needs and is designed to develop and refine day-to-day, operational, foundation level managerial knowledge and skills. The balance between the needs of the manager and organisation is achieved by the negotiation of an individually tailored approach. This course is carefully linked to the requirements of NQF Level 5 Diplomas and ultimately a masters degree such as an MBA. It also links to the requirements of chartered manager status.
This course is designed for aspiring and practising operational managers and graduates. Potential candidates should apply via the HCT application form and will attend a suitability interview.
