The Operations/Departmental Management qualification is a Foundation Degree equivalent and is ideal for someone who manages teams or projects from a senior and operational position. The government estimates that the UK wastes £84 Billion per year due to inadequate management and many businesses are utilising these qualifications to improve productivity.
This 24 month long qualification covers; creating and delivering operational plans, managing projects, leading and managing teams, managing change, financial and resource management, talent management, coaching and mentoring. Often these qualifications are undertaken by existing mangers but can be a progression from lower level management qualifications.
In addition to the qualification, many managers who undertake this course value the opportunity to share good practice and overcome common issues they face with likeminded managers from other local companies.
