Telford College is running a free two-day course to help people boost their workplace leadership and people management skills.

The programme is running from 9.30am to 4pm at the college’s Wellington campus on August 23 and 24, with places allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.

Everyone who completes the course will receive a level two certificate in Team Leading – an ideal fore-runner to the level three course which begins at the college one evening per week, from September.

Employability lecturer Gemma Parker said: “This two-day course is ideal for people with limited knowledge or experience in team leading, who are seeking a greater awareness of the role.

“But it is also suitable for those who may be in an existing team leadership role, and are looking to enhance their CV and career prospects by adding an accredited qualification.”

The course looks at topics such as team leading responsibilities, managing yourself and providing direction to a team, and communicating information and knowledge.

Gemma said: “Over the course of the programme you will gain an understanding and insight into what team leaders do, covering their roles, leadership styles, target setting, motivation, dealing with conflict, and more.”
