Free Level 7 Manager Development Programme

Free Level 7 Manager Development Programme

Four fists over jarAround 80% of UK managers are untrained in people-management. Just think about the improvement in firms if it were the other way. Just think about the improvement in employee job satisfaction, organisational effectiveness, profit and reduced manager stress that such a shift would give! As you read this, you can probably think of managers in your own firm who don’t have the skills and knowledge to effectively manage people. They need to engage with this programme.

Level 7 Training

All managers need to use management science - and not just replicate out-of-context 'best practice' or implement the suggestions of untrained gurus. Levels 5 and 6 teach 'best practice' and 'how to...'. Level 7 teaches you to think and to challenge. Managers need to manage at Level 7. You shouldn't put up with less.

Let TimelessTime train you at NQF/EQF Level 7. We offer a nine-month rolling programme covering three central disciplines - hiring, managing and developing people. The whole programme is at Level 7. It's designed for managers who want the Level 7 knowledge and skills without the onerous assessment that comes from university-based or ILM/CMI courses. It focusses only on managing people - but it covers the whole topic.

And it's provided COMPLETELY FREE OF CHARGE. Book now!

The programme comprises three topics delivered as six 30-minute webinars and one two hour workshop per topic. You can dip in and out as your time allows. There's no need to attend all webinars or workshops. And the whole course is delivered online - though for those attendees within travelling distance of Haywards Heath, we run a face-to-face workshop alongside the online workshop.

All the webinars are availble to 'listen again'. You can access them on our forum site. The advantage of course of attending the webinar in person is the ability to listen and ask questions as the session progresses and at the end. Check out the information below for future dates.

Who is the programme for?

The programme is for any manager in any organisation, though the programme is designed for managers of organisations in the United Kingdom. It's for any manager managing teams of any size in the public, private or charity sectors.

Programme history

We're management consultants. We'd been running workshops for clients since 2010 covering pretty much the same content as now offered in this programme. Our marketing was traditional, with web site, email campaigns and networking. But we constantly lamented that the marketing of our consulting services would be a lot easier if managers knew the science behind management. Our sales would progress more fluidly if the client manager understood what we were talking about.

Then one day, following a stint lecturing people-management at the University of Sussex on the MSc course in management, the programme was born. The idea was simple. We'd provide the background free. We'd educate managers. After all, that was what our other marketing vehicles like our web site and email campaigns did. The programme would just concentrate the knowledge. So, our training activities would become our marketing.

The programme sits alongside our recent book titled Because Your People Matter, ISBN 978-1-78623-417-9 available from Foyles, Waterstones and Amazon from early January 2019.

Our terms

The programme comprising webinars and workshops is provided COMPLETELY FREE OF CHARGE. Book now!

We are providing this programme in order to show managers our knowledge and understanding as consultants - it is therefore a form of marketing for us.

Our agreement to provide the programme is with the manager's organisation. In return for delivery of the programme, the manager's organisation agrees to us sending the manager informational emails from time to time on management topics. We will ask the manager to sign up, on the organisation's behalf, to receive those emails before commencing the programme. Those emails contain information on management techniques, skills and knowledge - they are not sales emails. The manager can unsubscribe from the email list at any time.

We reserve the right to refuse to deliver the programme to anyone using a Gmail or other personal or generic email address or anyone who, on investigation, is not a manager in a bona fide organisation. We will also refuse to provide the programme to anyone from an organisation that, on investigation, appears to be in competition with TimelessTime.

Otherwise, our standard terms and conditions of sale will apply and a copy is available on request.
