ILM Level 2 Award in Leadership and Team Skills
In order for a business to obtain maximum results, it is important that employees are motivated and supported in their job roles. It is the responsibility of the team leader or supervisor to lead their team effectively and present feedback to management. This 3-day programme will guarantee to boost your performance as a team leader and help you make the transition from working in a team to leading a team.
We use a combination of theory and practical to help you develop yourself, and a toolkit of resources to use in the workplace. This is an internationally accredited course which not only carries kudos but it ensures you apply the learning back into the workplace for an immediate impact.
This programme is ideal for practising or aspiring team leaders, in any industry sector, who are looking to gain a solid foundation or develop their existing skills as a team leader. It is an internationally recognised course which will give you a solid understanding of what is needed to be a successful team leader, how to delegate, how to motivate others, and how to implement these skills in to your workplace.
As with all ILM accredited programmes, participants will need to complete the post-programme activity in order to achieve their full ILM Level 2 Award in Team Leading. This element is designed to show to ILM that you are able to apply what you have learned in the workplace. We have an internal ILM verifier who will ensure your work meets the ILM requirements before it is finally submitted.
