What our students say about our Management and Leadership courses
SBS’s level of support and my tutor’s attention and advice has really encouraged me to be the best I can be in my practice. My management performance, conflict resolution, and communication skills have all improved dramatically. I would recommend this school without hesitation to anyone looking for professional development courses.
I have been an experienced manager in healthcare and education settings for a number of years and partly due to the business of the roles it isn’t always possible to reflect on your leadership/management practice and in my case what time i have had has been utilised to complete a variety of other qualifications. The…
I was pleasantly surprised by the quick and efficient setup of my student virtual space so that I could progress with my studies. Monica from Support patiently took me through a somewhat steep learning curve associated with my trying to figure out the approach, process, results of my studies. Monica was awesome, sweet, and polite,…
I loved my L5 OTHM course in Business Management! My tutor was really patient and helpful to progress through the course, can’t wait till September when I am starting the final year in Uni for a degree I wanted! Thanks again SBS 🙂
I wanted a quicker way to get an MBA and to learn from home entirely. Your Level 6 OTHM Course was my ticket to get straight onto an MBA top-up online course with Arden. Looking forward to the day I can add those letters to my name 🙂 nearly there. Thank you guys!
Although I had good experience of consultancy projects, the Level 7 Professional Consulting course made me realise that there were many more aspects to being an effective consultant. My clients now comment on how much time I take in learning about their business environment, and how well I involve their own people – both approaches…
I was nervous about the course – the Level 5 Professional Consulting – but it was well-structured and the content was relevant to all of the businesses here in my country which I am aiming for. Very useful which I’m already making use of – thank you!
My change of career into coaching and mentoring is now much more likely to be successful, due to the learning from your CMI Coaching and Mentoring course. The online format was ideal for my personal circumstances, the study materials were high quality, as was the support and guidance from my Tutor.
After studying the Coaching and Mentoring course with you, I realised that I needed to be much more focused on the broader circumstances and needs of those I mentor. This has had a significant impact on the effectiveness of my mentoring, and as a result my MD has now asked me to run a workshop…
My employer wouldn’t allow time off to study, nor pay for it, so the online method was the only way I could get a better qualification. It was much more enjoyable than I thought it would be – good support and excellent materials made it manageable, and although I studied alone, I didn’t feel isolated.…
A great course! Enrolment was straightforward, the study materials easily accessible, support from support services always helpful, good advice about the assignments from the tutor – I was a bit worried about it being Online, but it worked well. I will recommend your management and leadership courses to other managers in my organisation.
I’ve just been promoted to Operations Manager – and I’m sure that gaining the postgraduate Level 6 M and L qualification was a big help. For sure what I learned will help me perform well in my new role.
Finished! Thanks for all the support your team gave me in studying for the Strategic Management and Leadership qualification. I’m now going to use it to enrol on a fast-tract MBA, and then my aim is to start my own business. It’s all looking more possible now thanks to you guys.
The unit by unit approach was good, it was very motivating to see progress being made as each assignment was successful. I was concerned that I wouldn’t manage such a high-level qualification as I was a relatively new senior manager but worked well, and I feel I have gained substantial knowledge which will be useful…
Thanks again for your help with the Strategic Management and Leadership Course – I’ve just completed an MSc in Project Management which your qualification enabled me to start, and was a good foundation of knowledge which I used on the Masters.
