Course Overview

A vast array of opportunities exists across all facets of business and government for people with professional managerial and leadership skills.

This nationally recognised qualification reflects the role of individuals who have senior or managerial responsibilities. They may be in any industry or organisational setting and overseeing the work of others or having specialised roles where they do not supervise others but provide strategic leadership.

Typically, people in managerial roles will have considerable experience in their respective industries or vocational areas and combine an informed perspective of the specific work requirements with their managerial approaches.

The Advanced Diploma of Leadership and Management offered by ANIBT will enable you achieve what you’ve always wanted to in the world of management. It will equip you with the skills and knowledge to manage strategic and operational areas of any organisation.

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.
