“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/Department Manager standard learner

One of our Time to Listen tutors Wendy McNeil reflects on her experience of delivering the workshop.
"The Sports Structures in conjunction with NSPCC online Time to Listen online workshop provides an opportunity for different sports to meet virtually and share experiences using some great thought provoking material. The pre and post-course material provides pointers for different sports and can be used as an aide memoire. I really enjoy delivering the workshop, especially being able to share my knowledge and give real life examples of my time in the sports world. It is very rewarding when you receive positive feedback from those who have attended the workshop" Wendy McNeil
