The Postgraduate Certificate in Leadership and Change, offered by Chevron College in conjunction with its academic partner, the University of Sunderland, focuses on participants’ personal, professional and academic development needs and their ability to engage in transformational learning and change.
This course has been designed to help you develop your skills and become a better leader. You will learn how to recognise and apply the theories related to effective management, leadership, and change management.
