Leon intends to undertake a Diploma in Project Management to broaden both his skills base and career options.
On how he expects the professional development to add to his skill base, Leon said:
“While I’ve been involved in informal project management in my career, a diploma in project management will allow me to understand the theory behind the practice, and will mean I can build on my technical background with new skills that will allow me to take my career in a new direction. I can use my experience in IT and engineering projects to consolidate these skills which will be transferable to new roles and allow me to consider new opportunities. I’m also keen to improve my business acumen and a diploma in project management is an ideal way to do that. I hope to further develop my understanding and skills in the areas of strategic thinking, finance, operational management, marketing and negotiating.
This scholarship will allow me to add another string to my bow as well as allowing me to network with other technology management professionals – it’s a great opportunity.”
