Helping You to Obtain a Level IV Certificate in Leadership and Management

Every year, hundreds of students choose to enrol to this course, making it one of the most popular that we have to offer. Obtaining a Level IV Certificate in Leadership and Management can be a great way to enhance your knowledge and understanding of what it takes to be a world-class manager or supervisor – and at Westbourne College, it’s our priority to ensure that you get the most from your qualification.

What does this program involve?

This qualification is ideal for anyone that’s hoping to pursue a career in management; or offer their extensive knowledge when undertaking a supervisory role. It’s advanced in nature, meaning that it will require a particular skillset in order to be studied with the best results; but thanks to the friendly approach and professional attitude afforded by our tutors – you’ll be able to rest assured that whatever your capabilities, you will certainly stand the best chance at obtaining this certificate with us.

How long does the course take?

Most of our students find that the course, including all of its online assessments, can take anywhere between one and two years to complete. That’s not to say that you couldn’t have the certificate in your hands in just under a year – especially if you plan on knuckling down and getting your education done as quickly and efficiently as possible.

In the majority of cases however, we’d suggest between one and two years for full completion and this can be done by studying online entirely, or by using your current career as leverage when tackling particular core units within the course itself. If you aren’t employed, then you might find the freedom to study at your own pace even more appealing.

What can students go on to achieve?

Many of our students go on to take on high-earning roles within the management field and these can include positions as:

  • Supervisors
  • Managers
  • Team Leaders
  • Specialists in Customer Care
  • And many, many more possibilities

Which types of assessments does this course feature?

Our curriculum has been specially developed to ensure that our students receive the most from their education. To ensure quality and progress, we extend a range of assessments that can take place throughout the duration of the course itself. These can include projects and research that can be undertaken in groups or as individuals, case studies and written assignments that will be marked by your tutor, as well as metaphorical scenarios to gauge the progression of your knowledge and expertise.

Which options are available for studying?

Although here at Westbourne College we specialise in online studying, that doesn’t mean that we aren’t able to accommodate physical education with one of our trusted sponsors, or in the workplace. Our students are able to take full advantage of the online working environment and blended studies which can offer the best of both worlds – but there’s no obligation to pursue any of them unless you want to.

What can be done with the qualification once it has been achieved?

The Certificate Level IV in Leadership and Management, or as it is commonly referred to within the educational and professional industry – the BSB42015, can go on to be used in a variety of sectors and for a range of purposes. As mentioned above, the majority of certified students will go on to offer their services within management and leadership roles – but this can literally be applied to any sector.

Some of these sectors include customer services, construction, retail, digital, project management and many more alternatives.

Why trust us?

There is a reason why we are considered one of the leading online colleges in Australia – and that’s because we offer world-class results at affordable prices.

Our students come to us to enhance their knowledge, improve their skillsets and maximise their expertise; when it comes to leadership and management we genuinely know our stuff.
