This programme is designed for both aspiring and actual Team Leaders who want to improve their team leadership skills in order to enhance their own, and their team's, performance. The role of the team leader is distinct from that of the first line manager. The team leader focuses on the shorter term, day-to-day performance of the team and its members. This means a responsibility for allocating tasks between team members, ensuring that individuals are supported in their performance of their job role and ensuring that the team's output conforms to the requirements of the University. This programme is suitable for grades 5 to 6 in both academic and professional services.
