More about the programme:
Completion of the ‘Premier Adviser’ programme leads to the award of the SFEDI Diploma in Business & Enterprise Support at SCQF Level 8. Recognising the busy schedule of a business adviser, the programme is designed to provide a flexible, customised learning solution. It is delivered through a unique blend of executive coaching, tailored to the needs of each student, and is supported by a comprehensive programme of on-line learning and personal development activity. There are also opportunities for accreditation of prior learning, either for part, or all of the qualification, dependent upon qualifications and experience.
The programme normally takes around 6 months to complete and is centred on a combination of executive coaching and online learning. Assessment is focused on the workplace, through a combination of practical assignments and observation. Students are supported by their executive coach though monthly hour-long sessions. They also have access to iAcademy, which provides a dynamic range of learning and personal development resources, including a Business Adviser discussion forum.
There are no formal academic entry requirements. Participants will normally be practising or aspiring business support professionals with the communication skills to allow them to meet the assessment requirements.
