Diploma in Management (RQF) Level 3

If you're a born leader with a keenness to learn, then developing a career in management could be for you. The best thing about management is that there are opportunities within a huge majority of sectors and industries, whether it's retail, sales, HR, recruitment, finance or even business. Whatever your area of expertise, you're bound to find something to suit you and provide the opportunity to utilise your existing skill set, as well as acquiring new skills.

Our NCFE Level 3 Diploma in Management RQF Qualification (601/4032/X) is a fully recognised qualification listed on the RQF (Regulated Qualifications Framework). It’s ideal for current and perspective managers across any sector or industry. The distance learning course aims to cover the skills and knowledge needed to be a competent and successful manager.

As well as being financially rewarding, becoming a successful manager can be the start of a new direction in your career. It's important to carry on developing and improving yourself, therefore a distance learning course may be the perfect option for you.

The key to becoming a successful manager is being an all-rounder and having the second-to-none ability to turn your hands to absolutely anything within an often demanding but extremely dynamic environment.

A Diploma in Management RQF Qualification will allow you to become multi-skilled and establish your own strengths as a manager. It will develop the skills and qualities you need and which are valued by employees in employers.

Who can enrol?

This qualification is ideal for both current and soon-to-be managers who are interested in developing their skills and knowledge in order to become a competent and successful manager.

This knowledge-based course contains practical aspects that will need to be demonstrated. You'll be assessed on the tasks you do at work and create a portfolio of evidence to show what you've achieved. You'll need to be working in a managerial role in any sector or industry in order to begin this course.

What qualification will you get?

You'll receive the NCFE Level 3 Diploma in Management RQF Qualification (601/4032/X) after you’ve successfully finished the course.

The NCFE Level 3 Diploma in Management is designed to develop your understanding of business markets and the management of individuals' performance within a workplace environment. This course will cover all of the fundamental skills needed for becoming a successful manager, including communication, organisational, presentation skills and project management.

What will you study?

Studying our management course will allow you to develop skills in a range of areas relevant to managerial roles, including:

  • Understanding team building and dynamics
  • Managing individuals' performance and team performance
  • Identifying and managing personal and professional development
  • Negotiating in a business environment
  • Managing and supporting the delivery of a project

Understanding a team and dynamics is important because it plays a vital role in the day-to-day operations within a company, regardless of the industry and sector, and will help with developing your own skills and establishing the difference between leading and managing.

People have different strengths, amounts of experience, and ways of working but will all have to work together. Understanding this makes a difference to managing time, people and it's an essential part of building an effective team.

What can I do once I have successfully completed the Diploma in Management RQF Level 3 Course?

The Diploma in Management RQF Level 3 carries 55 credits which can be transferred to progress onto further study, for example, a degree. You’ll also be able to progress onto the Level 4 NVQ in Management or the NVQ Level 5 in Management and Leadership, where you'll learn the key differences between management and leadership.

We also offer a Management and Leadership Course, Management Support Systems Course and Management Accounting Course

Besides a huge sense of achievement, a manager will be given the power to carry out certain duties as such as set work schedules, evaluate staff, organise training and even play a part in the growth and direction of the business. The opportunity to manage people and the added responsibility provides a sparkling new challenge. 

What is the average salary for a managerial position?

Income will vary based on the industry or sector you're working in. Newly appointed managers can typically earn anything from £18,000 - £20,000+

Current managers with a few years' experience under their belt hoping for a promotion can earn anything from £30,000 onwards.

More senior managers can expect to earn anything between £40,000 - 100,000 depending on size, type of company and location.

Other benefits may include life insurance, childcare vouchers, pension scheme, car allowance and interest-free season ticket loans.

All figures are intended as a guideline. (Source: National Careers Service)
