BSB51918

Diploma of Leadership and Management

Are you interested in earning the BSB51918 Diploma of Leadership and Management through Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)? Are you in a role of responsibility? You may be eligible to receive this qualification based on the work you’ve already done. And, you could do it without having to complete any additional study.

  • Have you worked as a supervisor or team leader for some time?
  • Do you feel like you’ve reached your potential in your current role?
  • Would you like to stay at a management level but move into a different industry?

Then how about a qualification that showcases your transferable skills!

When you’ve worked in a team leader, supervisory or equivalent capacity over a year or more, you’ve done a lot. The more that you did things, the better you got at them. You built skills and knowledge, and you gained experience that has given you a deeper understanding.

In short- you learnt a lot.

This learning is just as important and valid as classroom learning – some would say more so. But, it can be hard to communicate. That’s where getting qualified through RPL (or Recognition of Prior Learning) comes in.

In the employment market, qualifications are important. They’re the method by which we communicate our level of understanding. When you already understand something, there’s no need to study it. RPL means you don’t have to.

Find out if you are eligible for this qualification by calling us on 1300 793 002, or through the Get Started button above.

Leadership and Management Industry

Leadership and Management opportunities are in high demand in every sector of the workforce from government and corporate, to mining, retail, construction and everything in between.

There are 1,581,600 Managers currently employed in Australia. One in four are aged 55 years or older, that’s roughly 395,400 managers who are 55+.

This means that in the next decade, we will have hundreds of thousands of managers reaching retirement age and creating an opportunity for promotions, as younger supervisors are coming through the ranks.

In addition, the Future of Work Report forecasts 109,900 more managerial positions by 2023.
