Why apply for our PGDip Leadership Development?

  • Shift from manager to leader: At this point in your career, you know how to manage. But can you lead? This PGDip will help you unlock the insight and nurture the skills you need to show up as a leader. •    Make a significant impact by consciously developing your leadership skills: Discover and grow your leadership skills over the period of one year and establish the grounding you need to confidently take on leadership positions.
  • Invest in your career: Acquire leadership skills without doing a comprehensive degree like an MBA. At the same time, this PGDip can give you access to a Master’s degree as it’s presented at NQF level 8 - the equivalent of an Honours degree.
  • Study while you work: The study format allows for dedicated, focused block weeks to immerse in the learning experience. In-between the blocks, learning is continuously reflected upon and applied in the context of your work environment.
