Management Development [5 days] Programme Outcomes

1) A working plan - describing the future of the facility you manage with clear personal priorities

2) A business Improvement /development project - which at least identifies tangible results

3) Agreed assignments - personal action points in three critical areas

The BIFM Training 5-day management course is accredited by the Institute of Leadership & Management and with successful completion of reflective reviews throughout the course, and one work-based assignment after the course; it leads to the nationally recognised ILM Level 3 Award in Leadership & Management qualification.

As well as exploring varied, yet inter-related topics, there are exercises, discussions, even time to reflect, and practice techniques in a 'safe' setting. Work based assignments give you an opportunity to apply those techniques in your own working environment. This means you learn from experience, and can share those experiences with fellow delegates.

13-17 October, Central London, for further information or to book please call 020 7404 4440 or click here for more information
