The Course

As a Foundation Degree in Leadership and Management student, you will develop your knowledge and skills for contemporary organisations, with flexible delivery options to suit your needs, whilst working with dedicated tutors who are available to support you whenever you need it.

The programme is designed to deliver key theoretical concepts and practical situations, with a strong theme of employability, as well as teaching and learning strategies to develop vital employability skills, to allow you to succeed in professional situations.

Work experience is actively encouraged, as well as the importance of good networking skills, with guest speakers and industrial visits a regular feature of the programme.

Our tutors have a range of industry experience and a wide range of industry links and contacts, with large national organisations and key public sector institutions, including banking, retailing, project management, marketing, import/export shipping and human resources, which will enhance your experience and will build your awareness of commercial practises.

Work Related Learning is integrated throughout the programme through specific activities and through business scenarios. If you are a student in employment or in an Apprenticeship, you will be able to use your own workplace as a reference point for the completion of assessments. Support with case studies will also be provided to ensure practical experience.

How the Programme is Delivered

The Foundation Degree in Leadership and Management has many features that will encourage and excel your learning experience, these include:

  • Flexibility of delivery to suit all students and to make the programme easier to access; students can study one or two days per week and can switch from full-time to part-time at any point.
  • Innovative delivery model to meet individual needs; part-time students will be able to study more or less modules according to your individual needs and work patterns.

What this can lead to

Most students who complete the Foundation Degree progress to the top-up BA (Hons) Leadership and Management at York College. This typically takes an additional year for full-time students and one and a half years for part-time.

Many of our graduates have embarked on successful management careers in a variety of local, regional and national employers and organisations and some previous students have also set up their own businesses and enterprise activities such as event planning and catering.
