"This programme has had the most significant impact on my reflective practice. I thought I was reflective before, but attending this marked a pivotal point in my leadership journey and I am now more acutely self-aware and observant of my impact on others." Georgia, Group Captain, Royal Air Force.

At the Bristol Business School, our portfolio of Open Programmes offers you and your business a flexible learning solution. We have a range of programmes covering a wide range of topics, including Finance, Strategy, Marketing, Leadership, Coaching and Mentoring, Innovation, and Design Thinking, among many others. Our programmes are delivered by experienced academics and practitioners, who combine cutting-edge research and thought leadership with a practical, real-world focus, to ensure our programmes meet professional and industry needs.

Several of the programmes in our Open Programme portfolio can also be taken as part of a full programme qualification. For example, successful completion of the optional assessment in 'Personal Mastery in Leadership', enables you to achieve 15 credits towards the attainment of a PG Certificate in Leadership and Management. 

To obtain the full PG Certificate in Leadership and Management, you will also need to attend and complete the assessment for Leading Change Programme (15 credits) and the Strategic Leaders Programme (ILM Level 7) (30 credits). The latter also provides you with an ILM Level 7 qualification.
