How to make more time for the things you need to do

A course on time management, to enable you to make better use of your time.


Time is one of our most precious resources. There is rarely enough to go around, but we can’t literally make more of it. So we have to make the best use of the time we have and ensure that we have enough time for the things that really matter.

The aim of the course

This course aims to help you understand how to manage your time better by looking at good time management techniques (and bad ones).

Who is it for?

This course is for anyone who wants to make the most of their time.

Course duration and format

This course can be completed in around 75 to 90 minutes. Please note that to get the most from this course will require additional time to complete the checklists and to reflect on your own practice, but it is divided into sections so that you can complete it in a number of sessions. We advise you to complete each section at one sitting to maximise your learning, but allowing time between study sessions may enhance your learning by allowing additional time for reflection on both your learning and your current practices.

At the end, there is an online test, successful completion of which will enable you to get a certificate to provide evidence of your learning. You should be able to demonstrate what you learnt going forward in changes to your behaviours.
