Completing the Higher Certificate Business Management Course offers you the chance to pursue a Senior Manager career by providing you with the knowledge and skills needed. This course can be undertaken over a three year period, although many students are able to complete their studies within two years of starting. To qualify for this course you will need a National Senior Certificate, a Senior Certificate or a National Certificate Vocational (NQF4) – at least a 30% pass in the language of teaching and learning. Some of the positions that you could apply for after this course include a Human Resource Administrator, Marketing Administrator and any managerial role with basic financial needs. A Senior Manager needs to plan and direct certain groups within the business, while monitoring work performance and sorting out issues that may arise. Depending on the structure of a business, the Senior Manager will either instruct workers directly, or oversee a group of supervisors who then relay instructions down the line. This person will need to approve requests, provide clear instructions on how to achieve certain goals under his guidance, distribute workload and deal with requests from clients and employees. Reporting will need to be done and presented to superiors while also developing strategies to improve performance within their managed group.
