The six module programme costs £1,200 per person, while the full seven module programme, with personal development workshop and integrated Chartered Manager assessment, costs £1,640 per person.

All learning is supported through the Scotland Excel Academy’s online platform where participants can download learning materials, upload assignments and communicate with fellow students.
