Team Leading Level 3

What is this course about?

All courses work towards a nationally agreed standard, which has been developed by employers and educators in partnership. This means that we are creating a set of core principles for business that all administrators will meet.  The sharing of knowledge, the application of skills and the evidence of behaviour are the three elements every coursewill look to achieve.

This course has been designed to provide access to development opportunities for as wide a range of individuals as possible. This includes people who are at the start of their career in leadership and management and those who wish to take their first steps into the role.  It is also appropriate for those who are already in role but have no management knowledge to underpin their leadership and decision-making skills.

What Will I Learn? (Knowledge and Skills)

There are several modules as part of the course and these include (but are not limited to):

  • Developing self and others

Analyse own development through self-analysis, understand the importance of communication to build great relationships

  • Leading and Managing People

Be able to understand and explain the structure and culture of an organisation, diversity and inclusion, what makes a good leader and the importance of team working

  • Operational Management

Describe what makes a good operation, through theoretical operational management processes and practices, including the application of data and setting targets to manage performance.

  • Project Management

This includes project management methodology, change management and decision making. You’ll get the chance to set up a project in your own organisation.

  • Finance and Accounting

You’ll understand how finance works in general, including general financial management principles and practices, governance, compliance, reporting, budget management.

What will I develop? (Behaviours)

Every course has core behaviours that we’d expect to see displayed by team leaders and supervisors at this level.  You’ll work through the knowledge qualification and apply this to show skills development.  Behaviours are usually observed within the workplace through peers, colleagues and your coach. Core behaviours for Team Leader/Supervisor are someone who takes responsibility, is inclusive, agile and professional.

Functional Skills in Maths and English

If you don’t already have a grade C or above in GCSE then you’ll need to complete Functional Skills at Level 2.
