John Morgan of Aquarius Training & Development Partners provided and supported the training and mentoring for my CMI Level 5 – Diploma in Management & Leadership QCF, and from the start, John was enthusiastic and provided the personal touch. Ensuring that my potential was realised by giving me the confidence to complete the qualification.

His knowledge of the ELCAS system is a great help for those leaving the forces. Thanks John

Cpl. David Bairsto CMgr.MCMI - MoD St.Athan

CMI Level 5 Diploma in 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.
