Focus on Management Course 2013

03 June 2013
09:00 - 18:00

Delivered by: Sponsored by Barclays (and including case studies by Barclays, Sainsbury’s, Capco and the Civil Service)

We have now opened bookings for our prestigious "Focus on Management" course which this year is being sponsored by Barclays.


Focus on Management is a demanding, but rewarding, 2 day course aimed at testing your team-working, problem solving and presentation skills, as well as developing your Commercial Awareness.


Over the two days you will work in small teams, facilitated by a team manager working within industry, tackling business case studies from four employers. This year the companies providing case studies include Barclays (Banking), Sainsbury's (Retail), Capco (Management Consultancy) and the Civil Service (British Government). You'll also get the chance to network with employer representatives including Barclays, Cancer Research, Getty Images and Accenture as well as our case study providers and other organisations to be confirmed.


Your team manager will trial different leadership and management styles over the two days and you will have the chance to observe which prove most effective, and which might work for you. You may even have the chance to lead yourself, on part or all of an assignment. As well as providing an opportunity to develop some important transferable skills, this event will give you some great examples to use when filling out application forms and during interviews.


Deadline for applications is Friday, 22nd March 2013
