Management Course (Level 1)

Course Overview

Management Course Online

The gap that separates standard members of the workforce from those in management positions is perhaps the largest and most difficult to traverse.  Nevertheless, once the first step has been made into a supervisory role of responsibility, absolutely everything changes.  The importance of quality management across every contemporary business sector cannot be overstated.  Businesses at all levels and in all industries across the board are fundamentally reliant on the skills, talents and character traits of leaders.  Just as quality management can play a pivotal role in facilitating enormous success, substandard management will almost always lead to poor performance, if not outright failure.  Practical experience counts for a great deal, but when it comes to taking that all-important first step, so too does the right academic background.

Brentwood Open Learning College is a committed provider of accessible, affordable and enjoyable distance learning opportunities of the highest quality. We believe that access to high quality learning should not come down to on campus study alone – precisely why we are delighted to offer a range of outstanding online management courses. This Level one management course online is ideally suited to those interested in taking their career and future education prospects to a much higher level. All course materials are included as standard and enrolment is open 365 days a year on a global basis. And with no deadlines or time restrictions whatsoever, our online management course works around you and your schedule.

Over the course of three insightful modules, you will explore what it is that the contemporary business manager does and what makes the difference between a manager and a leader. You will study resource management techniques and strategies, a series of common issues and challenges in the management profession and the importance of self-improvement to become the very best leader you can possibly be.

Upon completion, you will have the opportunity to apply for an accredited and recognised ABC Awards certificate to enhance your CV and employment prospects.

Course Syllabus

This online management course is divided into three modules:

Module 1 - Understanding Management and Leadership

The introductory course module provides candidates with a definition and comparison of leadership and management. How the two differ and are at the same time intrinsically linked with one another is discussed in-depth, along with the kinds of issues and challenges routinely faced by those in management positions and an overview of SWOT analysis – aka the Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats matrix.

Module 2 - Managing Resources

Course Module 2 turns attention to the management of resources as a core element in the overall business management strategy. The primary objectives and advantages of appropriate resource management are discussed, alongside strategies for efficient management of resources and a number of associated challenges and issues.

Module 3 - Managing Time, Stress and Crises

Self-improvement represents the primary core focus in the final module, highlighting the importance of ongoing development as a manager. Candidates explore a variety of stress management and time management techniques, along with strategies for dealing with difficult situations and how to remain effective in times of crisis.

Decent portal and easy to use. Course material and assignments were detailed and clear. It has given me a basic knowledge of Management, which is what I had hoped for.


I really enjoyed this program. Unlimited materials were made available to me and the prompt response to emails was incomparable. I recommend BOLC to anyone who wants to have unlimited knowledge in any of the courses offered by the College.
