This programme is primarily designed to meet the management development needs of managers already in post. This includes supervisors, team leaders, first line managers, middle and senior managers. However experienced professionals who aspire to a management career may also access the programme as long as they have supervisory responsibilities that allow them to complete the practice assessments. As this programme offers a good grounding in strategic management it is suitable for managers currently in first line and middle manager positions who may be seeking promotion to a senior position.
