The University of Derby enhances any learning and developmental programme through its rapidly growing reputation for innovation, teaching mastery and excellent facilities. Together, we will be delivering an interactive, challenging and practical course for enhancing personal and organisational development. 

Business leaders keen to develop a mobile workforce are being encouraged to study a new part-time course with University of Derby Corporate (UDC) starting this September.

The 'Managing Agile Working' course, developed in partnership with leading UK consultancy firm Capita Symonds, teaches professionals how to positively change work practices, deploy new technologies, and create innovative working environments in order to boost productivity and performance among staff.

The six month work based course, covers a wide range of topics relevant to agile working, such as the benefits, impacts on business, investment requirements, management techniques, and the effect of agile working on organisational policies, including HR and health and safety.

The programme will be delivered by supportive and experienced tutors through two interactive workshops at UDC's state of the art Enterprise Centre in Derby city centre, as well as through independent online learning modules.

Kevin Lane, Senior Consultant at the Workplace and Property Consulting Division at Capita Symonds, said: "The partnership between University of Derby and Capita Symonds represents the best of both worlds to managers and leaders seeking to enhance their knowledge and practical skills in the hot topic of agile working.
