Ofqual-Regulated Level 5 Management Award
in Corporate Risk and Crisis Management

Welcome to the Deltar "Ofqual-Regulated Level 5 Management Award in Corporate Risk and Crisis Management"

This course is designed for experienced security, risk and crisis managers who are working in large organisations, and who are being given increasing responsibility for issues such as strategic risk policy, business continuity planning, crisis management, training and exercising and other ‘softer’ issues such as resilience and capability development.

The courses we run have been tested and proven with corporate and government clients across the world, and we are confident that whatever sector you are involved in, both you and your organisation will gain real benefit from this course, both from the information we will give you but also from the opportunity to interact with other people involved in much the same activities, and sharing many of the same challenges.

Feel fee to get in touch if you would like more information, and I look forward to having an opportunity to meet in person on one of our programmes.

Access Full Course of Ofqual-regulated Level 5 Qualification

On the official Qualification and Curriculum Authority scale, a Level 5 Award is equivalent to a Foundation Degree, and relates to

‘A level of study, and development of portfolio of work, that relates to a senior management level in terms of the ability to identify and use relevant understanding, methods and skills to address problems that are well defined but complex and non-routine. It includes taking responsibility for overall courses of action as well as exercising autonomy and judgement within fairly broad parameters. It also reflects understanding of different perspectives or approaches within an area of study or work’.

This programme is designed to build on participants’ own knowledge and experience, and to give them the skills and capabilities associated with global best practices from a range of risk and crisis management environments.
