She Leads Diploma of Leadership & Management

Enrolments for the next intake of our She Leads Diploma of Leadership and Management are now open. The next intake of the Diploma will commence on Tuesday 14 May 2019.

If you would like to enrol in this course, please email for further details.

The She Leads Diploma of Leadership and Management is at the cutting edge of leadership development. It applies a framework of developing participants’ cognitive capabilities and emotional intelligence (knowing), practical leadership skills (doing), and leadership identity (being).

The course interweaves this framework with a traditional BSB51915 Diploma of Leadership and Management, allowing participants to build their leadership skills while working towards a nationally recognised qualification. YWCA Canberra is a Registered Training Organisation (RTO 1373). The course also explicitly acknowledges and addresses the perspectives, challenges and opportunities for women in leadership.

During the She Leads Diploma, participants will have the opportunity to explore and refine their leadership identity and reflect on their experiences, strengths, values, and vision for the future. Through this process, participants will learn how to become authentic and effective leaders.

She Leads has both the capacity to provide participants with a new skill set or formalise the skills that they have accumulated through their careers.

Upon successful completion, participants will graduate with a BSB51915 Diploma of Leadership and Management, recognising their competency in the following areas:

  • Managing personal work priorities and professional development
  • Managing operational plans, budgets and financial plans
  • Communicating with influence
  • Using emotional intelligence
  • Managing meetings
  • Managing people performance & ensuring team effectiveness
  • Supporting the recruitment, selection and induction of staff
  • Managing diversity
  • Facilitating continuous improvement.

The She Leads Diploma is delivered over ten dynamic full-day classes (held monthly) which include: seminars, practical exercises with case studies and role plays, personal development sessions, and peer coaching.

This qualification is available as fee-for-service and government funding through User Choice as part of a traineeship.
