Is the Diploma for me?
This Diploma is perfect for those who work, or aim to work, as managers in community service organisations, however, it is transferable across different sectors. The qualification is also nationally recognised throughout Australia.

What skills and knowledge will I gain?
The BSB5020 Diploma of Leadership and Management has a strong focus on building your leadership skills and abilities that can then be applied to your own workplace, teams and situations. It offers practical training to develop your initiative and judgment in planning, organising, implementing, and monitoring your own workload and the workload of others.
You will learn to use communication skills to support individuals and teams to meet your organisation’s needs. You will also discover practical management skills to plan and design solutions to unpredictable problems and the ability to analyse information from a variety of sources.
How many units do I have to do to achieve my qualification?
There are twelve (12) units of competency needed to complete your BSB50420 Diploma of Leadership and Management. Six (6) of these units are core units and must be undertaken and the remaining 6 units are electives. These units are available online in our Module Learning Pathway.
Who is the Module Learning Pathway designed for?
This is the perfect pathway for you if you aspire to be in a management/leadership role but have not yet had that opportunity or are new to one of these positions. It provides the essential strategies to assist you in your leadership journey.
What is the Module Learning Pathway?
CCWT uses a modularised approach to your online learning. Instead of undertaking the 12 units separately, we have designed Modules where similar units are bundled together while you only need to undertake the one assessment per module. All the 6 core units are covered in the Module Learning Pathway as well 3 elective units which work well together with a core unit. Some Modules contain only one unit. This is because they are either a large unit in themselves or don’t map well to other units. Each Module contains all the information you require to undertake the assessment.
To find out more about the Core Modules as well as your selection of Elective Modules, download our Application Pack.
What is online learning?
You will be able to access your Module directly on your computer and undertake your assessments in a writeable format. The learning is self-paced and you do not have to log in or attend facilitated workshops. All the material you require is within your nominated Module. If you feel you need more information or simple what to explore the topic further, consider attending a workshop related to your topic.
How long will it take for me to achieve the Diploma?
The length of time that you need to achieve the Diploma will depend on your time commitment. As a guide, our students generally complete their Qualification within 12-24 months.
What is the cost of the Module Learning Pathway?
Can I attend a workshop related to a unit?
Yes. Facilitated face to face or online workshops are helpful to understand the concepts and practical skills needed to gain your learning. Our workshops are interactive, full of information and tailored to our sector. All our facilitators are experts in their fields.
CCWT offers Diploma students the opportunity to attend a workshop related to their unit for a small additional fee. The cost of attendance to workshops for you is less than if you were a non-Diploma student. Please note that not all units of the Diploma are covered by a workshop.
