Aspiring Managers Programme (AMP)

Management and Leadership

HAD’s Aspiring Managers Programme (AMP) is a four day (2 modules of 2 days) programme providing participants with the fundamental knowledge and skills required of an effective manager.

Many organisations have the challenge of succession planning – in the short term, the struggle to replace a manager and, longer term, to keep a flow of potential managers coming through.

This introductory course aims to develop the next generation by targeting managers-to-be and preparing them with an introduction to management, ready for when the next vacancy arises.

By way of preparation, AMP provides the fundamental knowledge and skills required to eventually become an effective first line manager / team leader / supervisor. It also gives tips on making the transition and navigating the first few weeks and months.
