To be a great manager, you need to be able to motivate and inspire your team while juggling the complexities of helping to run a business and interpret complex financial information.

So if you’ve been newly promoted to a managerial or team leader role or you’re looking to take your career to the next level, our Management diploma will give you the skills needed to be highly effective. You’ll develop an understanding of how to get the most out of your team, alongside learning what you need to know to flourish in your role and drive your organisation forward.

The skills you need to be an effective Manager or Team Leader

The Management diploma is the ideal diploma if you want to take the next step up and prove you have the skills to succeed.

You’ll learn how a business works, gain essential accounts understanding, advanced software skills, time management, leadership attributes, and good communication in an organisation.

To complement your diploma, you’ll also have the option to add two elective courses, including Sage 50 Accounts, Marketing Essentials, and Costing and Pricing, to name just a few.

What will you get in return?

Upon successful completion of the programme, you will receive the widely recognised and respected Pitman Training diploma. Businesses throughout the UK and Ireland recognise the Pitman Training name as a sign that you have been trained to the highest level.
