This qualification is for people in supervisory roles within sport and recreation workplaces, who want to up their management game.
First line managers are confident, capable and encouraging, and they have a passion for helping staff to achieve and shine. They can think on their feet, and use their keen decision-making and problem-solving skills to spur their team on in tackling big goals.
This full-service qualification is delivered and assessed completely online, making it suitable for a wide range of trainees, no matter the size of their organisation or where they are located.
The programme will be run using a cohort system. Trainees will be placed within a cohort of their peers, so they can progress through the training together. These online-based groups will be supported by a dedicated facilitator.
