This course gives practising or potential first line managers (team leaders or supervisors) the foundation for their formal development in their roles. As the largest awarding body for leadership and management qualifications in the UK, the Institute of Leadership and Management is committed to developing managers at all levels. This qualification has been re-designed in a unit-based format, for the UK and European credit frameworks.
The award is a concise qualification which gives a basic introduction to the skills, knowledge and understanding required by the first line managers of today. (If you work in health Care, this Programme can contribute to supporting evidence for NHS KSF Outlines, with the added value of sharing good practice with other health care professionals).
You’ll develop an understanding of the factors that influence how people behave at work and investigate a range of leadership styles to motivate individuals and monitor performance.
You’ll have the opportunity to look at the importance of planning and delegation and, in the later stages of the course, you’ll develop your knowledge and understanding of how effective communication at work can increase staff motivation and productivity.
The qualification develops basic management skills and assists participants in gaining the knowledge and skill required by team leaders and supervisors, as well as providing a route to career development. The modules offer opportunities for class discussion and interaction with other course members.
All assessment methodologies are work-related and designed to provide individual development and direct organisational benefits.
The Award is delivered many times over the academic year. The following modules will be included:
- Understanding Discipline in the Workplace
- Understanding the Communication Process in the Workplace
- Understanding Leadership
- Understanding Organising and Delegating in the Workplace
- Understand how to establish an effective team
- Understanding how to motivate to improve performance
- Understanding Conflict Management in the Workplace
- Understanding Innovation and Change in an organisation
- Understanding How to Lead Effective Meetings
There are no formal entry requirements but candidates will normally be either practising or aspiring first line managers with the opportunity to meet the assessment requirements. An informal discussion with the Programme Leader is recommended to ensure that the qualification meets individual needs.
Most candidates will already be in employment; however the course will assist in career progression by enabling candidates to identify opportunities for management skill development. Many have used this qualification successfully to enhance their promotion prospects.
