Management and leadership has recently been identified in research as one of the key skills that employers look for when recruiting. This learning pathway is a structured programme to help you develop people management and leadership excellence to go alongside your technical skills.

Sooner or later almost every accountant will need to lead and manage people, teams, and organisations as a whole. You will be expected to understand how to provide strategic direction, to help improve performance and align it with the organisations goals, and to deal with difficult situations. This learning pathway will ensure that you take as professional an approach to these challenges as you have done to developing your technical skills.

Along with your fellow participants, you will learn how to operate as a leader, as a coach and as a member of a team you may also manage. The learning pathways also focuses on the skills you need to be an effective leader and looks specifically at the challenges of managing in unusual circumstances.
