Leading with Influence (SCQF Level 7)

Leading with Influence is a Professional Development Award (PDA) which is an introduction to leadership and management.  It is  for first-line management roles to develop competence and knowledge in leadership and practice.  The programme will support managers to set and realise their vision in line with organisational objectives and to bring their team on a journey with them. 

How is it delivered? 

Leading with Influence is delivered over 6 face-to-face sessions and will be assessed via self-directed work and assessments delivered within the face-to-face sessions.  In addition, support sessions will be available throughout the course.  

All our sessions involve a mix of content, discussion and interactive activities to cater to different learning styles.  Participants will have the opportunity to hear thought-provoking leadership insights from a variety of experienced guest speakers throughout the course.  This allows participants a safe space to explore how the theory can play out in practice in a multitude of settings.  

On successful completion of the course, you will gain an SCQF Level 7 qualification which is jointly certified by the Scottish Qualification Authority (SQA) and the Chartered Management Institute (CMI).  

Learners registered on the PDA are eligible for 12 months of free studying membership of CMI.   

On achievement of the PDA, learners can apply for membership in CMI which means that  they can become part of the professional community of managers.
