Course description

Who should attend?

This course is suitable for managers and supervisors who are responsible for managing resources and risk, in any sector, and any organisation.

Candidates need a basic command of English (defined as Level 2). While we are often able to provide support to people who do not have English as a first language, our ability to do so is limited by the time available and the number of people who require assistance. We may be able to make special arrangements if requested in advance. Please contact us if you need any guidance.
