Graduate Certificate in Leadership – Organisational Leadership stream
All learning material including lectures, interviews, reading material and links to other referencing and learning resources, quizzes and activities will be available online via ARK the University’s Learning Management System. The materials will be accessible at your convenience during each unit’s teaching period.
Webinars will be held weekly on a mid-week evening. These sessions will allow you to meet with your tutor and other participants, discuss the learning material and prepare for assignments.
At the end of either the second or third week of each unit, a day long intensive will be held for all participants to gather for a face-to-face workshop, learning, and networking. Intensives will be held in different locations simultaneously, depending on the numbers of participants in the various national hubs. Hub locations include Melbourne, Adelaide, and Brisbane.
Assignments are designed to help you put your learnings into practice.
The course will be taught by the School of Professional Practice, with onsite delivery supported by Colleges of the University located in Adelaide in Brisbane.
Each unit will run for a 5-week period, that include 4-weeks of teaching and 1-week in which you will complete an assignment for that unit.
