Dont take our word for it – check out Lynne’s story and see what she thinks of our online management courses.

This is Lynne’s story.


Lynne studied the Level 5 Extended Diploma in Management.

Like so many managers Lynne has a busy life and had to fit studying in with looking after her family and a busy job. That’s why she choose to study her management course by distance learning as it offered her the flexibility she needed.

Watch the video to find out what Lynne thought about her course and how she has now been promoted.

Completing the Level 7 Strategic Management qualification has given me a broader and deeper understanding of the strategic drivers for the business as a whole as well as a greater understanding of the different models and techniques and this has enhanced my performance.

The units studied greatly assisted me in being able to act as a strategic partner and consultant to executive Directors when reviewing strategy. The quality of the learning materials was excellent as was my tutor.

Completing the diploma has enabled me to significantly progress in my career achieving considerable promotions and an appointment to a senior management role.

HR Development Partner, Virgin Media

As a new line manager I have found the Certificate in First Line Management extremely useful in developing my confidence.

The course allowed me to delve into my own organisation’s policies and processes so that I was not just learning theory – it was actually applicable to my job! This motivated me when completing my assignments.

My knowledge and skills of management have improved dramatically, I am also empathetic towards those I am managing.

The course was very flexible and I found it easy to fit into my busy schedule. My tutor was very supportive and approachable.

I would recommend this course.

Jennifer Smith

School Manager, Level 3 First Line Management

I really enjoyed the flexibility and freedom of distance learning. I really appreciated the support from my tutors, the quick  responses and their ability to keep me focused and on track. As I would consider myself a practical learner, rather than an academic learner, I particularly appreciated and benefited from the supportive documentation / materials provided. Thank you so much.

Julie Foster

Clinical Team Manager, Level 5 Diploma Leadership and Management

I have to admit I was slightly dubious about doing a management course as I have now been managing for over ten years and didn’t really expect to learn anything new that would benefit me.

It was very clear even during the first unit that it was going to be very beneficial and I would in fact learn quite a lot more than what I first thought I would.

It has given me more to think about in terms of been a manager, not just about turning up to work and “Managing”. There are so many other aspects to my role that I probably never thought or realised I needed to do or have skills in, such as people skills, employment laws & regulations and also finance, all of which are very important to not only my own success but that of the organisation.

After doing the course it is clear that not only have I benefited from gaining the qualification, but I am also confident that I can use some of the skills I have learned on a day-to-day basis which will also benefit the organisation in the long run.
