About this Course

This Level 7 Certificate in Management and Leadership has been designed to equip participants with the core knowledge, skills and competencies to develop as a manager and leader. It aims to support those in a supervisory or management role who may be experts in their field (eg manufacturing, science, engineering, ICT etc), but have no prior exposure to management and leadership teachings.

This one-year part-time programme has been developed in collaboration with key employers both in the region and nationally. It will provide a practical learning experience to managers and those tasked with managing people. Participants will be provided with the foundation for examining and developing their own individual leadership style.

Key Features:

Having successfully completed the Certificate in Management and Leadership participants will be able to anticipate how environmental factors impact on management practice; evaluate their own leadership style and understand the impact of this style on others; set performance objectives, integrating and co-ordinating the work of individuals and teams through appropriate collaboration in pursuit of these business objectives and, evaluate business outcomes to enhance future decision making through identifying performance and skills gaps.

An online model of delivery, using LYIT's Virtual Learning Environment platform, will be used for this programme, allowing both those in employment and those currently not in employment to participate in the programme.

Applied Project

Ireland's National Skills Strategy 2025 stated that the level of general management skills in Irish businesses was relatively poor and that highly proficient leadership, with ambition, vision and strong management teams, is fundamental if a firm is to identify and anticipate changing market dynamics and to fully understand its customer. Having successfully completed the Certificate in Management and Leadership participants will be able to anticipate how environmental factors impact on management practice; evaluate their own leadership style and understand the impact of this style on others; set performance objectives, integrating and co-ordinating the work of individuals and teams through appropriate collaboration in pursuit of these business objectives and, evaluate business outcomes to enhance future decision making through identifying performance and skills gaps.
