Overview

Principles of Management and Leadership

Being equipped with the knowledge, skills and behaviours to manage and lead effectively is essential if an individual and their organisation are to succeed. Evaluating the application of management and leadership principles and approaches, how these can positively impact on own role, lead to improved performance, and support teams, colleagues and customers.

 

Managing a Team to Achieve Results

The ability to manage teams, which are able to communicate effectively and overcome barriers to achievement, is a critical skill for any manager. High performing cohesive teams are created in an environment where there is a collective understanding of values, goals and objectives. This unit has been developed to support managers in understanding the nature of teams in the workplace, and how these can be managed to achieve results.

 

Building Stakeholder Relationships using Effective Communication

Developing relationships with internal and external stakeholders is an essential management skill. Stakeholders can have a positive or negative impact on the success of an organisation. The aim of this unit is to equip managers to identify and understand stakeholder’s needs, know the purpose and benefits of building relationships with different stakeholder groups, and the methods of communicating with them to achieve results.

 

Contributing to the Delivery of a Project

Whilst the scale, significance and complexity of a project will vary, the principles of carrying out a project will ultimately be the same. This unit aims to equip managers with the knowledge, tools, and techniques for managing and monitoring projects. It also identifies approaches to managing risk and responding to the needs and expectations of stakeholders. The skills a manager will learn, will not only enable them to improve own working practice, but will affect the achievement of project outcomes.

 

Managing Daily Activities to Achieve Results

Working efficiently is essential if a business is to remain competitive. A well-structured workload is key to individual and team success. The aims of the unit are to equip managers with the knowledge to identify priorities and set measurable objectives. Managers will know how to organise and allocate daily work activities, monitor outcomes, and respond practically to problems in a manner that supports the achievement of results. Managing Budgets and Resources Budgets and resources are crucial to the functioning of any organisation. Organisations need to plan and manage money and resources to remain operational. The aim of this unit is to equip managers with the knowledge that they need to manage budgets and other resources. This allows them to remain efficient and effective.

 

Managing Data and Information

The ability to solve problems, make timely business decisions and respond to customers’ needs is all dependent on the ability to access good quality data and information. With growing volumes of data, this challenge has become increasingly difficult to manage. The aim of this unit is to equip managers with the knowledge of how to gather, assess and analyse different types of data and information, and how to report findings for different business purposes within legal and organisational guidelines.

 

Managing Own Personal and Professional Development (Apprenticeship)

In order to meet the demands of an ever-changing workplace, individuals need to ensure they continue to update and develop their knowledge and skills. Planning for personal and professional development ensures greater opportunities for success.

The business course is very versatile so it can help with lots of job options after college. My dream career is something in finance, maybe a Chartered Accountant, so everything I’m learning now on my course about Business will help me to reach that goal. I would encourage everyone who’s thinking of applying to GC to just do it, it’s been the best decision for me and I’m looking forward to what comes next in my education and career.“

I’m not sure what sort of career I want after the course yet but the college offers lots of career advice and guidance to help me. I applied for Gloucestershire College because there is better transport links and access for me and my wheelchair. I also thought the new campus looked really cool. I chose to study Business as my sister did the course previously and said it was really good, helping her get a job now. The course is very flexible and not too many hours a week so I can do other things like work experience around it.

I would tell someone who is thinking of applying to the College to go for it as it will open doors to lots of great opportunities. When I finish the course I want to go to University – with Oxford as my first choice. I wanted to study at Gloucestershire College because of the new facilities and new Forest of Dean campus, I think it looks really impressive. I am studying Business as I think it will lead me to a lot of other new career opportunities."
