Geraldine’s experience

Being able to secure any kind of job where she can successfully put into practice what she has learned was Geraldine’s prime motive when deciding to study for a prestigious qualification with a foremost West Midlands training organisation.

The 30 year-old from Oldbury read about the KYRA Birmingham Foundation Degree in Leadership in a Birmingham Mail article and immediately decided it was for her.

The KYRA programme uniquely brings together businesses, the public sector, the community and the voluntary sector to train and inspire students from all walks of life to become leaders.

KYRA seeks students who are motivated, ambitious to see a better future for themselves and their families and who are keen to play a part in creating a more prosperous society.

Geraldine was impressed with the flexibility of the course, which she found exacting, yet interesting and enjoyable – an exhilarating way to prepare for a successful future.

“I was drawn by the ‘work and learn’ aspect of the programme, which enables you to fit in study with work and family life,” said the mother-of-two.

“It is challenging, but everyone involved at KYRA is so helpful that you can constantly make headway,” she said, praising particularly the tutors, counsellors and mentors, who are all experts in their individual fields. “Everyone is very approachable, you only have to ask and they will help you,” said Geraldine.

“As a former board member for KYRA, I know first-hand how much value the Foundation Degree in Leadership can deliver for the students involved.

Through a mixture of practical experience, gaining transferable skills and cutting edge knowledge from the master tutors it’s  an absolutely fantastic way to nurture your staff, unlock their true potential and a great way to show them that you value their contribution to the business.

If your staff could do with some inspiration and motivation, as well as a boost in leadership skills and general competency, the course would work as a perfect morale-boosting benefit for your business.”
