Business Law and Management

Being a manager in an independent college is a demanding role that requires awareness of various sets of external regulations, as well as many different personal skills and competencies. We provide training in a wide range of topics in this area, focused both on the management of a college as a small-to-medium business and on individual managers' personal and professional development.

The events below include a number of carefully selected sessions delivered by our partners English UK: these will be relevant to staff at all types of institution, but may be delivered in part from an ELT perspective. Events designed specifically for independent FE and HE providers, and delivered by Study UK, are indicated below by the Study UK logo and listed under the menu on the left-hand side of the page.
