You asked, we listened!

Dundee and Angus College recently introduced free online courses designed to encourage people to re-skill or up-skill. The interest in these initial care and digital courses has been fantastic but feedback has also highlighted a desire for management training, especially in these challenging times.

The College is keen to support its local region so it has added another free course to this suite – Situational Leadership Skills for Line Management. This short programme is designed to equip learners with the skills and knowledge to support development as a leader. It can improve team effectiveness, collaboration, productivity and motivation – all key issues which can be particularly difficult as we get used to new ways of working.

Caryn Gibson, Economic Partnerships Manager at D&A College, says, “I truly believe that leadership in the workplace will look very different now. More than ever we understand the importance of human leadership, effective communication, problem solving and the significance of building connections and that’s why we are pleased to bring you this course. At Dundee and Angus College we are committed to playing a key role in supporting our economy to recover and our goal is to give the people of our communities the skills that are required to build back strong and resilient businesses. We are delighted with the uptake of our courses so far and would encourage everyone to consider this opportunity to enhance their own skills or those of their workforces.”

These courses can be started flexibly at any time before March 31. To find out more visit: Free courses (
