BSB61015 Advanced Diploma of Leadership and Management

Advanced Diploma of Leadership and Management is an 18-month on-the- job training program. The program involves workplace based training and assessment. This qualification reflects the role of individuals who apply specialised knowledge and skills, together with experience in leadership and management, across a range of enterprise and industry contexts. Individuals at this level use initiative and judgement to plan and implement a range of leadership and management functions, with accountability for personal and team outcomes within broad parameters. They use cognitive and communication skills to identify, analyse and synthesise information from a variety of sources and transfer their knowledge to others, and creative or conceptual skills to express ideas and perspectives or respond to complex problems.

Program Outline

Training is delivered as a workplace based delivery combined with self-paced learning (we recommend 5- 6 hours per week) and regular visits in the workplace by the workplace trainer. Written learning activities will reinforce theoretical knowledge, and skills will be practiced in the workplace where learning will be placed into context. Visits by Ausphin Institute workplace trainers to the student’s workplace will be undertaken minimum once a month. The primary purpose of workplace visits is to undertake assessment and collect workplace evidence as student progresses throughout the course. The units of competency are sequenced in a way that allows a logical progression.

Duration: 18 months

( Ausphin Institute are able to support participants that need additional time. Alternatively, participants who have pre-existing skills and knowledge may be able to complete the course in a shorter duration. )
