Subject: FW: Call for Support – Internal Development Programmes
Good Morning Grainne,
Here is some information I and my colleagues put together in response to the above:
In the first Instance when a new Manager is appointed we have a New Manager Induction Programme. This is a programme designed by HR and actioned by each Manager individually. This programme allows each new Manager to become more familiar with each area of the Business and to equip them with every day Management knowledge.
Each year we run a Leadership Curriculum Programme which is based on a number of modules e.g. Legislation, Management Development, Front Line Leader, 7 Habits of Highly Effective people etc. These modules are designed and developed both in house and externally. All of the Management Team attend these modules and this is part of their development programme.
In addition we run a Diploma in Food Industry Skills. This is certified by City and Guilds. There are 13 modules and skills assessments. Examples for the modules on this programme include, Bar Coding, Health and Safety, HACCP and Food Safety. The modules have been specifically designed around our processes. Each year we look for a number of application for this 1 year programme. The applicants go through an internal interview process and successful applicant attend the programmme.
Also in the past we have run a Leadership Development programme. The main objective of the Leadership Development Programme was to prepare a small group of 8 team members for potential future leadership positions in Ballina Beverages. This programme gave the opportunity to acquire a range of managerial and interpersonal skills leading to a Diploma in Management, accredited by CMI (Chartered Management Institute).
Programme Structure and Content: The duration of the programme was 2 years and comprised of the following:
- Approx. 12 workshops which took place every 4 – 6 weeks
- Case Studies, Group Exercises, Presentations and Business Simulation Exercises
- 4 Work Based Assignments
- Final project (4,000 words)
- Final project presentation to Ballina Leadership Team
- Study Time required will be at least 4 hours per week
5 Compulsory Core Programme Modules:
- Developing your Management Style
- Planning to meet Customer and Quality Requirements
- Managing Financial & Non-Financial Resources
- Effective Communication and Information Management
- Managing Performance
Grainne – hope this is useful.
I run a Leadership Development Programme for high potential employees. It is FETAC certified. I would be happy to discuss it.
