Project Description

BSB61015 Advanced Diploma of Leadership and Management

CRICOS Course Code: 0100063

The target group for the BSB61015 Advanced Diploma of Leadership and Management are those who may be:

  • Seeking to pursue a career in management and executive positions in organization.
  • Seeking to progress in their career in the business, leadership and management
  • Seeking a pathway into Graduate Certificate or Graduate Diploma or higher education qualifications.

This qualification reflects the role of individuals who apply specialised knowledge and skills, together with experience in leadership and management, across a range of enterprise and industry contexts.

Individuals at this level use initiative and judgement to plan and implement a range of leadership and management functions, with accountability for personal and team outcomes within broad parameters.

They use cognitive and communication skills to identify, analyse and synthesise information from a variety of sources and transfer their knowledge to others, and creative or conceptual skills to express ideas and perspectives or respond to complex problems. Typically, they would have responsibility for the work of other staff and lead teams.

A mixed delivery mode is implemented including face to face training and training in simulated work environment. Training will take place at the Melbourne Education Institute facility at Level 1, 310 King Street, Melbourne VIC Australia 3000.

The following techniques are employed during face to face delivery depending on the subject matter:  trainer presentations and demonstrations, power point presentations, individual tasks, case studies, research, role plays, practical demonstrations and group work.

During independent study time, students will be provided with text books to develop knowledge and understanding. This includes a mixture of theoretical information and tasks.  Text books include sufficient information for the students to learn the topic, undertake practice activities and complete tasks.  Students will also be directed to undertake research tasks and access reference materials. Students will be supported by their trainers outside of class contact time.

Students may be provided opportunities for formative assessment during delivery. Trainers provide feedback to students on areas for improvements to facilitate the development of appropriate knowledge and skills and prepare them for summative assessment.
