June 2016 - CMI Level 7 Diploma in Strategic Management & Leadership.
I have been in my new role since July now. My team has responded well to my situational managerial approach. I have found a renewed enthusiasm for people management. I enjoy seeing my team achieve success as individuals and a team. They are voicing ideas for change, positive about developing, keen to take on new challenges. They and I still have a way to go, however I am creating a future for them. I believe the fact that I have had the opportunity to learn and research strategic management and leadership I have been able to apply the theories in a practical way. By combining this, re-examining my managerial and leadership skills and recognising that I wish to do things differently I can say I am enjoying being back in a people management role. I have taken the view this time to spend the time supporting, leading and developing my team. I realise to be a good leader I need to look to the future and create a vision. To be a good manager I need to work with my people, listen and value them. Completing my Level 7 Diploma in Strategic Management & Leadership with Aquarius Training & Development Partners was made more achievable through the programme design that enabled me to successfully complete my studies but also settle to my new role.

April 2017 - CMI L5 Certificate in Management & Leadership.
John was quite the professional, helping me fully understand what was required. I went into this slightly anxious, not having been in education for a while, and he took me under his wing with ease and guided me. Very well spoken and patient, I am grateful for his time in helping me tailor my work to my military background. The quality of material that is provided is exceptional, with multiple slide shows and downloadable content too. I am very pleased with what I have accomplished and I do look forward to working with John again.
I was a bit nervous at first and wasn't sure if I had bitten off more than I can chew, due to the fact of leaving school many years ago. However the Aquarius Training team and John Morgan in particular were very understanding and approachable which allowed me to work at my own pace with full support there whenever I needed it. I can highly recommend them and it was a pleasure to have completed my Level 5 Diploma in this easy going yet structured professional way. Many thanks Karl Stevens
