Basic Course III: Leadership and Career Development

The third course will provide participants with an opportunity to look ahead and build their understanding, skills and confidence in the key areas of career planning, career development and the further development of their leadership style. Using the participants' skills and expertise, the course will explore what is important for them in terms of ongoing career development. Working individually and in groups participants will be encouraged to build a clear picture of what they want to do, who they want to be, and how they want to get there. They will also build on their understanding of personal leadership, career planning and the skills and competencies organisations require when recruiting and developing employees.
