Accelerated Graduate Development Programme

This course has been specifically designed for small and medium sized employers who take on graduates but don't have an in-house graduate development programme. It provides a comprehensive training package to develop leadership, project management and finance skills to attract, retain and get the best from direct entry graduates, accelerating their progression into more senior roles.

For graduates, particularly those who haven't studied business at university, it provides comprehensive development package to accelerate early career progression and gain a Diploma in Management and Leadership, which is the benchmark qualification for full Chartered Management Institute (CMI) membership and progression to Chartered Manager status.

The programme includes a fast moving leadership business simulation from Profitability to increase self-awareness and develop leadership skills which is used by many large corporates for talent development. We also focus on the 'soft-skills' of influence, presence and decision-making which, we believe, are essential qualities for excellent team players and successful employees in today's competitive business environment. Access is also provided to Association for Project Management (APM) and PRINCE2® introductory e-learning courses, as well as an APMG-International Finance for Non-Financial Managers™ e-learning course to develop and embed core skills in these area, in parallel with study for the CMI Diploma.

The course is open to employers of all sizes and graduates from any discipline, including graduates who are unemployed.

Suitability - Who should attend?

Participants must have graduated from university within the past 3 years from any subject area.
