“The L5 leadership and management course has really encouraged me to reflect on and evaluate my experiences of management, learn and understand new methods and apply what I’ve learnt into my current practices. I have been encouraged to work at my own pace and the support and knowledge from the tutor has been excellent and really challenged my thought processes. Not only this but doing my job and evidencing new/existing processes has counted towards my portfolio which has made some criteria easy to achieve! I definitely recommend this course to anyone wanting to take on, or improve within, a management role.”Level 5 Operations/Departmental Manager standard learner
