Benefits of management study

I was keen to gain a qualification to demonstrate the experience and knowledge I have gained as a manager. However, as I work in a remote work location distance learning was my only option. As it turned out, it provided me with the absolute perfect balance of difficulty, do-ability and support from the VLA.

David Munro, Project Manager, Sureclean – Level 5 Extended Diploma

I started my journey with the Virtual Learning Academy in late April. I had completed my CIPFA exams in 2012 but had no idea how I would get on when I started my on line learning for the Level 5 Diploma in Leadership and Management. From the very start, I found Michelle and Catherine very helpful and they soon put me at my ease. Whenever I wasn’t sure about anything, they would always reply promptly and they definitely helped me reach my goal of completing the modules as quickly as I could. I found the learning material very easy to follow and well structured. Overall, I was very impressed with the professionalism shown by the VLA team and it was down to them as much as me, that I was able to complete the diploma in early September.
