Fast becoming the industry standard, our 5 day Management and Leadership Program for hire and rental professionals is available to all of our members. Courses are running throughout the year all over the country. Delegates work towards a level 3 NVQ in Supervising/Managing Hire Desk Operations resulting in not only the NVQ but also a SSSTS (Site Supervisor Safety Training Scheme) qualification and another from ILM (Institute of Leadership and Management. For more information, see the course listings below.
The course is made up of twenty two short sessions over four days. Each session relates to the other and includes materials for the delegates to try out back at work. Essentially all delegates are equipped with a management tool-kit to help them in their role. Lots of training courses are best remembered for the quality of the buffet. You may have really enjoyed the course but what did you do differently as a result? On the HAE MLP, all delegates get project work to implement in the workplace. The tutor supports the delegates with their projects and even once the four days are completed all delegates have access to a forum so they can stay in touch with us and other delegates.

Our new Degree Level Management and Leadership Certificate delivered jointly by us and the University of Western England (UWE). The first intake started on 10 October and we will confirm future intakes early in 2017. The course would normally cost £2200 per delegate however we are attempting to secure sufficient funding to deliver future programmes for FREE to all HAE EHA members! 

The modules include: Becoming an Effective Leader, Motivating People in the Workplace, Making a Financial Case, Managing Recruitment and Managing Customer Relations.
