Event details

Women play a huge role in business across Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire, but they are often paid less than their male counterparts. They are also more likely to miss out on career development opportunities due to factors such as part-time working to juggle responsibilities like childcare or caring for relatives.

The purpose of the Managing and Leading People in Organisations course is to develop an understanding of how to manage your own continuous professional development in order to be a more effective leader and to enable the achievement of career goals. You will access a range of learning activities designed to develop personal, professional and leadership capability.

To support businesses in the north of Nottinghamshire and the surrounding areas (where eligible), we are holding a course in Mansfield over three non-consecutive days.

The course will take place on:

  • Wednesday 18 September 2019
  • Wednesday 2 October 2019
  • Wednesday 16 October 2019

Before enrolling, take some time to read about the Priority Skills for D2N2 SMEs project, including course content and learning outcomes.


The course will run from 10am to 4pm each day and will cover the following topics:

  • Creating a supportive environment to focus on practical issues facing women in SMEs
  • Exploring gender differences in leadership tendencies, and how these impacts how women lead
  • Developing an understanding of effective leadership and management strategies and styles that support employee engagement and performance, individually and in teams
  • Understanding management and leadership issues and trends in organisations
