Our Extensive Diploma of Leadership and Management Course

Our Diploma of Leadership and Management course is by far one of the most beneficial that we offer, with hundreds of our students going on to tackle some of the most highly paid management roles in Australia. This course can be ideal to sign up to with little to no experience, but if you’ve recently been awarded your level IV certificate in Leadership and Management, then this could be the next step on your educational pathway.

What is this course about?

If you are keen to enjoy a management role within a particular industry (of which there are hundreds that can be chosen from), this diploma could be ideal for you. It’s extensive in the sense that it goes above and beyond regular training – with the majority of our students feeling more than confident enough to manage entire teams of staff, or offer their effective leadership skills to their own businesses. The options are almost endless, with countless opportunities once the qualification has been obtained.

What is the recommended duration of this course?

We recommend that anyone wishing to undertake this course allow themselves between one and two years for full completion. As the training can be undertaken from home, within the workplace, or at a physical institute – it can go on for as little or as long as you’d prefer. In our experience, most students can qualify at the end of their first year, but those with minimal spare time might want to allow themselves a little bit longer.

In any event, our highly educated tutors are always on hand to offer help and advice to those in need. If you are keen to complete your course and achieve your diploma by a particular date, they will undoubtedly do everything that they can to help you to obtain your goals.
