Course structure

To be awarded BSB42015 Certificate IV in Leadership and Management, a student must successfully complete a total of twelve (12) units of competency, comprising of:

  • four (4) core units, and;

  • eight (8) elective units, of which:

  • four (4) units must be from Group A;

  • four (4) units may be selected from Group A or Group B;

  • one (1) unit may be selected from any currently endorsed training package at Certificate IV Level or above or any accredited course at Certificate IV level.

Elective units must be relevant to the work environment and the qualification, maintain the integrity of the AQF alignment and contribute to a valid, industry-supported vocational outcome as well as be approved by the Polytechnic.

This qualification reflects the role of individuals working as developing and emerging leaders and managers in a range of enterprise and industry contexts.  As well as assuming responsibility for their own performance, individuals at this level provide leadership, guidance and support to others. They also have some responsibility for organising and monitoring the output of their team.

They apply solutions to a defined range of predictable and unpredictable problems, and analyse and evaluate information from a variety of sources.

What's a unit?

A unit or 'subject' is the actual class you'll attend in the process of completing a course.

Most courses have a mixture of compulsory 'core' units that you need to take and optional elective units that you can choose to take based on your area of interest, expertise or experience.
