Effective Time Management Course


Take Control of Your Time, Reduce Your Stress and Enjoy Life More

Happier people live longer, make better decisions, make more money, are more creative and are generally more successful in relationships both in work and at home. One way to increase your level of happiness is to decrease your level of stress. And one way to reduce feelings of stress is to be in control of your life.

Every now and again, most people feel they are being pulled in different directions with no time for themselves. A demanding employer, getting to grips with fast moving technology, the needs of a partner, children or elderly relatives and so on, can all leave you feeling like you’re at the beck and call of others. In this situation, the enjoyment you feel in life will soon drain away and you may start to feel resentful.

As the pressure builds up you become even more stressed which feeds into a vicious cycle. As your stress levels rise it becomes harder to concentrate. This becomes a worry which can lead to you taking longer to do things. As you take longer to do things you’ll feel like there’s not enough time to complete what needs to be done, which continues the damaging cycle of stress.

So that you can assess your work-life balance, start to feel that time is on your side and become more productive we have developed this first-class home study CPD course. As we’ve already said – it’s a question of time management, and the strategies you need can be quickly and easily learnt.

Whether you are currently experiencing stress at work or at home this course will teach you all the essentials for managing your time effectively.

The course we offer you, the personal tuition service and your Guarantees are fully explained in our prospectus, Effective Time Management – Making Life Less Stressful, which you can download below. But, for a quick overview browse the tabs above.

Your Course

To help you manage your time effectively and increase your productivity we’ve assembled a comprehensive, professionally written home study course. You’ll learn about:

  • identifying stress and its health implications
  • understanding how you work and what needs to change
  • how to have a clear desk policy and the benefits of an annual ‘spring clean’
  • the difference between being reactive and proactive
  • setting SMART goals
  • implementing a personal filing system.


We will show you how to use techniques for de-stressing and staying calm; keep a time diary to flag up problem areas; address procrastination; get organised; prioritise and delegate; schedule ‘Me time’; de-clutter your mind, office and home and take control.

By the end of the course you’ll be able to break down large tasks into smaller manageable pieces, say ‘yes’ to the things you want to do and ‘no’ to the things you don’t – and understand the implications of doing each. Plus, we show you how to analyse your goals and aspirations thoroughly and take positive steps towards achieving them.

Your course contains seven fact-packed modules and four tutor-marked assignments.

Your studies are very flexible. You can study wherever you are and you can adapt your study to suit your timetable. You can work when it suits you and you can start as soon as you are ready as there’s no fixed enrolment date.

Your course materials are sent to you as soon as you enrol and are available immediately in the Student Community Area when you enrol online.

You send and receive your assignments by post or by email – the choice is yours.

And, to make your course really effective, you also receive personal guidance and advice from your tutor – who is experienced at implementing effective time management and stress reducing strategies.

Your Personal Tuition

Under the guidance of an expert tutor you will develop an understanding of how time management and stress reduction can increase productivity. The assignments, which are based on a fictitious couple, are designed to give you plenty of practice at identifying problem areas. Typically, you’ll be given a scenario that you’ll have to assess and provide solutions for. This will allow you to examine your own life in detail and take back control with the help of the strategies you’ve been taught. You won’t have to provide any personal information and any questions you choose to ask will be in the strictest of confidence.

All our tutors are experienced in effective time management techniques. Each one has been specially trained by us to help you overcome any difficulties, and make further suggestions that you might find useful. Your tutor is there to help you get to grips with the basics quickly and effectively. You can rest assured that you’ll be getting high quality, detailed feedback on your assignments which will help you focus on the areas that need the most attention.

Manage Your Time Better and Feel Happier!

The biggest benefit to you is you’ll lose the feeling of not having enough time in the day. You’ll be able to do more in the time you have available without it feeling tiring and demanding. The knock-on effect of this is that you’ll have less stress, be more productive and much happier. Time management skills will make you realise YOU are in charge of your working day. You’ll be organised and able to work to your maximum potential, meaning all the important jobs get done and you can relax.

At home you’ll be able to find quality time for your children, your partner, new hobbies or whatever else you’d like to do. This really is a win-win situation as the more you get done the more your stress levels will drop, replacing a negative cycle with a positive one.


We are so confident in our course materials and tuition service that you have the course on 15 day (in your possession) inspection. If, during this time, you decide that the course is not what you are looking for you can return it to us – no quibble – for a transfer to another course or refund of your money.



Your Contribution

We can do a lot to help you, but we can’t do it all for you. In fact, the major contribution must come from you.

You need to put time aside to read the course materials, learn the appropriate techniques and take on board your tutor’s advice in the feedback on the assignments. For your own benefit we recommend you should try to study on a regular basis. However, this is not essential – you can study and submit your work at any point during your course. You have a full 12 months to complete the course but, if you put your mind to it and study regularly, you could complete and be benefitting from it in as little as two months.

So, if you really want to take control of your life – reduce your stress levels, work more effectively, spend more time with your family or take up a new hobby – and you are prepared to put in the effort required, then together we can help make it happen.

Half an hour each day is all you need!

With our help you will learn where to begin and how to plan your time more effectively. All you have to do is create a small space in your life for your study. Even with only half an hour a day you’ll be surprised how quickly you can increase your productivity levels and have a more fulfilling life by managing your time better.
