virtual delivery

Programme delivery

Managing at Manchester cohorts will be facilitated using a blended approach with online self-directed learning and facilitated workshops. 

Online learning portal hosted on Blackboard

The materials will be hosted within Blackboard. This allows participants to track their progress, and participate in online discussion forums and peer collaboration in between sessions.

Facilitated virtual modules

The facilitated modules are delivered online by the L&OD Team and external leadership experts. We acknowledge that online learning is more tiring than traditional face-face delivery, and so these modules are delivered through a series of sessions, interspersed with smaller group work and individual work.


Managing at Manchester has been a successful programme to help learners meet their learning outcomes. Some of the feedback we have received from the cohorts 2022/23:

"The best part of the programme was meeting colleagues and sharing experiences"

"Helpful to hear of others going through similar management problems and what they did/how they felt" 

"Opportunity to work with colleagues across Uni as one cohort - each time builds familiarity, increases engagement, enjoyment etc"

"Hard to pick one part. I loved the variety of different techniques, groups, exercises, content delivery"

"Break out rooms - being able to discuss challenges with other managers and take on their experiences and advice" 

'The programme was really good. I really enjoyed getting to know other managers and our discussions made me feel very supported.
