Time Management and Personal Effectiveness

This course aims to instruct participants on the key principles of time management and help them recognise personal tendencies and habits that may help or prevent them from applying the theory effectively.
As the work that we do to maintain our place in industry changes rapidly, the need for us to work at the peak of our effectiveness has increased.

This course will help you understand your own personal working styles and how it impacts on the time you have and on others. We will investigate ways to improve your professional and personal potential by making positive changes and developing and managing your time, and ultimately, yourself better.

During this course, candidates will be provided with information on:

  • Introduction to time management
  • Setting objectives
  • Taking decisive action and prioritising
  • Understanding the use of the Time Management Matrix
  • Managing interruptions and requests
  • Self awareness and assertiveness
  • Working confidently with others

After changing career I was anxious about starting a new course, but People 1st made me feel confident and comfortable. They have encouraged me and provided constant support when I have needed it through my Level 2 and my Level 3 qualifications. They provide the best training and I don’t think I would have been able to complete my qualifications, if it wasn’t for the support they offered me. I will hopefully go on to do more qualifications with People 1st in the future.

I’ve just completed my Level 5 Management course with People 1st. I can’t thank them enough for all the help and support I received, from not only my tutor Amanda, but the organisation as a whole. My classes were always well structured and I felt I could ask for help and guidance whenever I needed it. People 1st have helped me take that next step in my career and I will always be eternally grateful.

Thank you to People 1st and to Caroline Bell for an excellent and informative Assessors Course. From day one, I felt Caroline was there to support me in every way. At times when life got in the way, there was always a check in and she was there to assist with ongoing assignments. The visits and personal discussions were done with a warm welcome and I was at ease completing these which ultimately lead me to successfully completing the course. I am delighted to now be a qualified assessor, thanks to the support of People 1st. I cannot l wait to help and support many other students on their journeys with their own careers.
