The management by e-learning course "Essentials of Management 2014-15" has been developed by the Met Office and supported by WMO. It is designed for mid-level managers of NMHSs in developing countries, or for those employees who want to increase their knowledge of management skills, providing a foundation for further career development. Topics include effective team working, planning, performance management, and many others.

To date, over 100 international participants have completed the web-based training, which has been running since 2008. The course has been updated again this year taking into account feedback from previous participants on the course.

This course, which will be conducted in English, will run for 20 weeks, with 2 weeks for each of the ten modules.  (Please note that those candidates who have already completed either the 'Management by e-learning' or the 'Essentials of Management' course previously, need not apply).

This course begins on Monday 10th November 2014.

Applications will be considered up until Wednesday 29th October 2014.

All applications will be considered by a panel and succesful candidates will be informed by email on Monday 3rd November 2014.
