The BSB51915 Diploma of Leadership and Management  course is designed to reflect the role of individuals who apply knowledge, practical skills and experience in leadership and management across a range of enterprise and industry contexts. Individuals at this level display initiative and judgement in planning, organising, implementing and monitoring their own workload and the workload of others. They use communication skills to support individuals and teams to meet organisational or enterprise requirements. They plan, design, apply and evaluate solutions to unpredictable problems, and identify, analyse and synthesise information from a variety of sources.

This course is delivered by AAA Swiss in partnership with Unity College Australia. Unity College Australia (RTO 6330) is the issuing RTO and the provided of VET FEE HELP.


Students completing this qualification could undertake varying managerial and/or supervisory roles.  Job roles and titles vary across different industry sectors.


The changing workplace has led to the development of a significantly different role for Managers and their teams. There is a move away from the traditional skills of the supervisor controlling, directing and maintaining discipline, to the team leader being responsible for coaching, facilitating and developing team cooperation within a strategic framework.

This qualification provides the core leadership competencies required by contemporary managers.  Blending theory with practice, this qualification focuses on workplace learning to ensure its relevance to your particular situation and business.

This qualification is fully competency based and while knowledge and some aspects of competency are assessed within the realms of each unit, completion of activities demonstrating all areas of competency will need to be undertaken to graduate.

The student will obtain practical experience by undertaking field work at their workplace or not-for-profit organisation.  This practical experience is to be gained in an area that complements assessment activities and the immediate goals of the student.


The Diploma course would usually be completed within one-year on a full-time basis.  The model of training includes face to face sessions, blended learning and self-paced study.  It is designed for participants who are already involved in management in some way.


Location of training is based in Bankstown, Liverpool, Merrylands and Rooty Hill
