The course draws on the wealth of experience Acas has on avoiding legal difficulties as a manager and at the same time touches on best practice motivational and managerial techniques. It covers the fundamentals of management from basic leadership styles to the qualities essential to becoming a leader and manager.

The course aims to provide a broad overview of the basic do’s and don’ts for managers that will provide the basis for further training and study.

These days it’s not easy being an effective manager. If you’ve recently been promoted to the role of manager or if you have a team who rely on you to provide leadership, direction and motivation and you’re worried that you don’t know your legal responsibilities or obligations, this could be the course for you. Acas know that getting the best out of staff and ensuring staff are engaged and motivated is the key to a thriving, successful and growing business. That’s why we’re re-launching this course in a revised format. Training will be based on case studies, role play and practical exercises as well as some fun elements too.

The one day course is ideal for those who are new to the role of manager or have managed for some time but wish to complement their existing skills set with some theory and practical knowledge
