Management Skills is based on the premise that how you act in a business setting is often as important as what you know. Because management requires such a wide range of skills, all managers need to regularly assess their skill competency. Through self-assessment exercises and a learning journal, this module will encourage you to begin a process of self-evaluation that should continue throughout your career.

Closing date for applications: 4 Jan

Although they are called ‘management’ skills, many of these are ‘social’ skills. To be a good manager, you need to work well with colleagues at various levels within your organisation.

This module will encourage you to evaluate your behaviour, to change your behaviour and to assess the impact of that change. Management skills can be developed in a variety of ways. Within work, you may seek additional training or changes to your job so that you can acquire and practise different skills. Further education provides opportunities to improve your analytical, communication and team skills, to name but a few. Outside of work, you may pursue voluntary activities that require skills that you do not use on your job. This module will encourage you to design strategies that you can use to develop your skills inside and outside of work.

On successful completion of this module the learner will be able to:

Use methods of self-reflection to evaluate personal performance and professional development

Assess personal strengths, characteristics and skills that impact on workplace performance

Design strategies to build on strengths and continue skill development

Use skills to resolve real and case-study problems

Constructively engage with classroom colleagues to understand, accommodate and manage individual differences

Demonstrate your progress through the assignments developed by your tutor

 Assessed by continuous assessment

Prerequisite for admission: Principles of Management - or a minimum of 1 year of experience in a management role.
