Management Curriculum

The management curriculum offers a coherent focus in delivering on the Workforce Strategy 'to develop a talented workforce fit for the future' and is for anyone who manages people, teams or delivery, from any job family and at any level.

The curriculum offers a modular, blended learning approach, utilising face to face delivery, digital learning, curated resources, facilitated peer learning and signposting to 1 to 1 support (e.g. coaching, mentoring) to provide a bite-sized learning and training which can be tailored to individual needs.

Our online courses use blended learning to make the most of your time, focusing the live sessions on interaction, knowledge sharing and practice, and ensuring you have plenty of opportunities to embed learning on the job. Please note that you will need to complete all accompanying work and come to the session prepared and ready to engage with your colleagues.
