I have found the HNC course enlightening and useful in my work, in particular the units covering communication methods, data storage and dissemination. I have learnt the importance of and how to apply stakeholder analysis. This has enabled me to fully understand the differing requirements of each stakeholder involved in my area of work. The organisational behaviour unit has helped me understand the concept of leadership, the relevance of organisational culture and how to apply managerial and motivational theory. I have also learnt approaches to business strategy and how create and implement strategy. The unit titled PPD explored learning approaches and strategies to promote and encourage life long learning, which I have applied, not only to myself but also to some of my staff to help them meet their HCPC commitments, as well as considering their personal goals. The assignments throughout the course have helped me explore both my own organisation and the industry I work in, giving me a better understanding, ability and confidence in my current role.
