Overview: The Aspiring Managers Programme offers training support for aspiring managers within UCL with the overall aim of helping them to understand the manager's role and be able to apply key skills.

The Programme is designed to focus on the key management skills needed. It will enhance managers and supervisors' performance management capabilities and abilities to use analytical, diagnostic, solution and reflection tools to improve workplace performance.
