BA (Hons) Leadership and Management Skills for the Workplace

The BA (Hons) Leadership and Management Skills for the Workplace has been developed in response to student demand for an appropriate progression route following successful completion of the Certificate of Higher Education Skills for the Workplace programme.

This course is only available to our progressing students who have completed CertHE Business Skills for the Workplace.

Course Overview

This programme complements the portfolio currently offered through the Faculty of Business and Management and can lead to further progression onto the extensive postgraduate suite of programmes offered both locally and via distance learning.

In terms of subject content, the title “for the workplace” reflects the contextualisation of each module to the personal workplace experiences of the learners. This project based, discursive approach to study ensures that generic theoretical models are consistently explored within a workplace context ensuring continued relevance to the needs of employers and career progression.

This course is available to apply as a weekday or weekend study option.

After successful completion of this programme, students are welcome to continue to study with us onto one of our MBA pathways.

Successful completion of studies on the Cert HE Skills for the Workplace will enable learners to progress straight into Level 5 of this degree programme which follows a similar pattern of flexible delivery as the Certificate, being delivered with discrete modules, studied consecutively, with face-to-face tuition at a convenient community location. This programme will facilitate student study into management theory and practice, firmly contextualized within workplace experience.
This programme is only available to Home applicants.

Key Features

This programme is taught via a mixture of seminar presentations, interactive group discussions and individual and group activities. The teaching is front-loaded at the beginning of each module in terms of face-to-face contact with a carefully structured series of learner exercises progressing into each assessment task.

In every module the learning, teaching and assessment task reflects the basic philosophy of the programme as a whole, focussing on the relationship between theory and practice, developing critical self-awareness and bridging the gap between “knowing” and “doing”.


The summative assessment for each module takes the form of a single assignment the exact nature of which varies according to module content and learning outcomes. Students engage with individual and group presentations, mock interviews, short tests, research and problem-solving exercises and role-play situations as part of the coursework activities and formative assessment.

Whilst the final summative task might have a fairly traditional format of a written assignment or report, the formative tasks enable students to explore other activities fundamental to good practice within the workplace. Critical reflection on personal performance is a key part of each module and is integral to all aspects of the programme.

Each assessment task is linked to student interest or experience, so for a student with an interest in physical fitness, a project might be linked to the business and management of running a Health Club.
