Management and Leadership
The HN awards in Leadership and Management provide recognised qualifications that are understood and respected by employers across many industry sectors. They provide the educational and experiential background that employers demand.
These qualifications contain both theoretical and practical units. The theoretical units underpin the knowledge required to gain employment and allow progression to further academic and/or professional qualifications.
The HNC in Management and Leadership (SCQF level 7) covers management principles for those gaining their first experience of management or for those who aspire to become managers in the near future. Key areas covered include: self-development; management and leadership skills; managing and working with others; planning/implementing change; managing operational resources; and customer care.
The Diploma in Management and Leadership (SCQF level 8) builds on these principles and provides strategic competences for future career and personal development in managerial and leadership activities.
