Higher education course to begin in March

Voluntary sector managers will be able to gain a new higher education accreditation through a course endorsed by the University of London.

The Centre for Strategy and Communication is to launch a higher education certificate in leadership and management aimed at people working in the not-for-profit sector.

The course, which is backed by Royal Holloway, University of London, at Egham in Surrey, can be completed in one or two years on a flexible basis. Completing the course gains credits equal to about half a degree.

Jan Burnell, a director at the Centre for Strategy and Communication, said the course was put together because of the demand from people working in the not-for-profit sector.

“More and more organisations, in both the public and voluntary sectors, want a course that leads to a qualification in management and leadership,” she said.

The qualification will be formally launched at a reception at the House of Lords on 26 February. Applicants will be able to start the course in mid-March.
