You’ll learn how to plan, execute and evaluate your work and your team, to become the most effective manager you can be across a range of enterprise and industry contexts. You’ll also gain both broad and specific knowledge relating to how you interact with people and upskill in your specific industry.

Taught on campus over an 18-month period, we want this course to be as flexible as possible to easily fit in with your life. Theoretical classes will be condensed into one day of learning, while workshops will be taught every second week, making learning stress free and manageable.

At the end of this course, you’ll be able to put your skills into action, gaining hands-on experience as a Business Manager, HR Manager, Sales Team Manager, Program Consultant, Business Owner and so many more – the possibilities really are endless.

You’ll also be able to take your leaning further by studying an Advanced Diploma Leadership & Management (not offered at TAFE Gippsland) or a Bachelor Applied Management (not offered at TAFE Gippsland). Both of these qualifications are designed to enhance your employment opportunities and further your skills as a leader.

So, if you’re wanting to inspire your team, upskill as a leader and add to your knowledge bank, TAFE Gippsland is here to work with you in becoming the best leader possible, so you can put everything you learn into practise in your workplace.
