The BSB50420 Diploma of Leadership and Management is a program aimed to assist you to develop both theoretical and practical aspects of being a manager. As we know, being a manager is a tough job and it must include the qualities of leadership in order to develop a high performing team in your business.


The Australian College of Professionals has designed a delivery method that values the individual and your busy work and life schedules. The twelve units in the Diploma of Leadership and Management qualification have been divided into stand-alone training modules. You can enter the program at any stage and then simply work through the program until you have completed all twelve units. Naturally, if you are completing the program online, you can start at any unit and work your way through the program.

You can choose whether to attend our webinar tutorials (conducted every second Tuesday evening from 5.30pm to 8.30pm) or complete the program online. You may even choose to combine some webinar tutorials and some online modules…..it’s your choice. Face-to-face training will recommence when our world returns to some semblance of “normal”.

You may even like to take the bespoke course route, and simply choose to undertake one or a few of the training modules, and exit the program with a Statement of Attainment, and re-enter at a later time if you choose to complete the full Diploma. Your life will dictate your study needs and capabilities. ACOP will work with you to best meet your individual needs.

The twelve units contained in the Diploma of Leadership and Management offered through ACOP are:

    1. Communicate with influence
    2. Develop critical thinking in others
    3. Lead and manage effective workplace relationships
    4. Manage business operational plans
    5. Develop and use emotional intelligence
    6. Manage team effectiveness

    8. Manage people performance
    9. Lead communication in the workplace
    10. Manage business resources

As you can see from the units incorporated into the qualification, the skills and knowledge addressed in this program, will assist you to become a confident leader and manager in your work environment. The program will challenge you to challenge yourself and to become the best version of yourself that you can achieve.

“I have just completed my Diploma in Leadership and Management. I have really enjoyed the flexible learning environment, some face to face and some distance learning. The invaluable “real life’ knowledge of facilitators was a great opportunity to be given scenarios in which to learn from. Thank you ACOP for all your support.”
