This qualification is specifically designed to develop team leadership skills. You should be working within a team and you may plan day-to-day workloads, monitor tasks, resolve problems, communicate effectively, support change and motivate others. The time horizon for your planning will be mostly short-term, up to 1 year.
The course runs from October 2023 to June 2024 and is comprised of six blended learning blocks, each providing recorded content, self-paced learner activities and a three hour facilitated workshop.
Two qualification options are available from this course. Learners can choose to undertake an Award or a Certificate. Details of each route are outlined below and largely impact the amount of assessment undertaken by the learner. You don’t need to decide which route you want to do before you come on the course – you can choose once you are on the programme. Please note that you can attend all the teaching sessions regardless of which qualification route you choose to follow.
