This Institute of Leadership and Management (ILM) accredited level 3 course has been designed for working professionals, specifically for people who have leadership or management responsibilities but none or very few formal qualifications. These qualifications can help upskill potential or practicing leaders and managers and become more efficient in their roles.
The mode of delivery has been designed so students can share experiences and have hands-on expert advice in real-time.

All classes will be held in our newly-opened Academy in the business quarter of Liverpool, on Old Hall Street.
Performance management is vital to the success of all organisations, regardless of their size, industry sector or internal culture. Each organisation should design a performance management system to suit its specific needs. Above all, the approach should aim to align strategic, department and individual objectives. Also, performance management should be as simple as possible, command visible, involvement from senior management and be implemented consistently across the organisation.

"You are provided with all the resources you need and the support is fantastic. I would recommend Unicourse to anyone looking for distance learning at their own pace."
"I have enjoyed my course so far with Unicourse, I have found it a lot more flexible and can fit it around my hectic lifestyle a lot easier than attending college with assignment deadlines. Any problem I have had with the course have been answered very quickly. I would recommend Unicourse to others who are busy but want to carry on with education."
"From the start of the enrolment phase, UniCourse admin team made everything simple and clear how the course would be laid out with the program ‘Moodle’ I would be using. The course is a very convenient way to study even if you are already fully employed like myself and lecturers were easily contactable and friendly. Overall I had pleasant experience with unicourse and would recommend them to anyone looking to improve on their education"
"My dream of finishing my studies has been possible only because of Unicourse, they have given me the opportunity to be flexible with my studies and hold a full time job all at the same time. I would highly recommend them for anyone looking to study and work at the same time. I have found them to be very helpful with all my queries and they are quick to help me solve my problems. This is so convenient for me I can study in my own time and in my own home no need to travel to college at a certain time. After finishing my current HNC course I hope to start HND with Unicourse they are fantastic i am very pleased with them."
"With a full time Job and 2 very young kids a normal 9-5 course was not an option. It was becoming increasingly difficult to better my career options. Finding Unicourse on the internet has really opened up my learning potential. Their professionalism, knowledge and flexibility are really first class. To sum them up in one word.... Awesome!"
"I have found Unicourse to not only be a very convenient way to study as I am a self employed full time electrician, but also the course tutor to be very helpful. Whether I require help by phone, email or a live web session he is always available. The tutor also returns marked work very quickly allowing me plenty of time to make any adjustments. I have found Unicourse to afford me the best opportunity to progress my career whilst also continuing to work full time. "
"I have really enjoyed my experience so far with Unicourse.org even obtaining a Distinction on my first module. The staff and lecturers are quick and helpful with their responses to any and all enquiries and the video conferencing platform is very helpful when discussing intricate subject matter. I would highly recommend the course to anyone wishing to broaden their horizons whilst holding down a full time job."
"Great tutors, easy to follow workbooks, great support, would highly recommend."
"Time and place were severe obstacles to me achieving a HND in Electrical and Electronic Engineering. Thankfully, the flexible options offered by Unicourse have allowed me to undertake my HND from home with them while working full-time. They have personalised my HND, allowing me to choose from many optional units. The traditional colleges I looked up did not offer option choices at all. I have also managed to complete my HND with Unicourse in a fraction of the time that would have been necessary at other colleges. I am really pleased that I made the right choice. The support I got was fantastic."
"The flexibility of the courses and the professionalism of the staff make UniCourse a great way to improve your personal skills with a chance of a future career."
"If you want to succeed I personally suggest you apply to UniCourse. Why? After many years away from study I did my HNC. It was hard work but with superb help and guidance I obtained 8 Distinctions. This year I am doing my HND in Electrical & Electronic Engineering with UniCourse. Again, UniCourse are pulling out all the stops with high quality assignments, a one-to-one videoconferencing platform, incredible feedback and comprehensive support when needed."
You will study 2 units over the course of the six 90 minute lessons on this pathway. The classroom delivery format will run over six weeks and provide expert tutor support throughout. This ILM Level 3 Award pathway is broken down into two units.
This unit is designed for anyone who is ready to take the necessary steps towards learning and growth. It is also a guide for leaders and managers on how to support the development of their team members. This unit, and the tasks within it, will introduce you to principles and practices associated with managing personal development and will enable you to tackle your own development confidently and efficiently. The exercises/assignment will require you to consider theories and models that align with each topic but, importantly, you will be expected to make parallels with your own experience of personal development in the workplace.
Employers are increasingly aware of the importance of investing in their staff and often have structures and processes in place to provide opportunities for the training and development of their employees. Managers also need to take personal responsibility for renewing and updating their skills and knowledge throughout their working lives. Personal development is a continuous lifelong process of nurturing, shaping, and improving skills and knowledge to ensure maximum effectiveness and ongoing employability. Performance management is vital to the success of all organisations, regardless of their size, industry sector, or internal culture. Each organisation should design a performance management system to suit its specific needs. Above all, the approach should aim to align strategic, department, and individual objectives. Furthermore, performance management should be as simple as possible, command visible, involvement from senior management, and be implemented consistently across the organisation.

Performance management is one of the most hotly debated areas of management thought, more importantly how to achieve an effective performance management programme. This is largely because employee performance is recognised as the backbone of organisational success. A well-executed performance management framework can encourage the development of a high-performance culture and provide a clear link between individual goals and organisational objectives. This unit outlines the evolution of contemporary performance management and examines some of its most influential models and concepts. It also considers the critical link between individual and organisational performance and looks at how different performance management tools can be combined to create an effective performance management system.
Some experience as a practising or aspiring leader or manager is desired but not essential - no formal entry requirements.
Once approved onto the course, you or your employer should either phone us up or request an invoice to be paid via BACS before the course start date.
Credits gained can be used towards an L3 Certificate or Diploma in Leadership and Management and the different pathways, including Introduction to Leadership, Introduction to Coaching and Mentoring, Introduction to Conflict Management, and many more.
