Everybody who arrives in a management role for the first time, asks themselves what do I do now? The hard work and technical skills that got them the management responsibility are not the skillset necessary to be successful as a manager. The new manager needs to quickly identify what he/she needs to focus on and how to make the necessary personal changes in a seamless manner..

FOUR core People Management modules delivered through dynamic and interactive online training sessions of typically 90 min duration. Each module has 3 sessions delivered on alternate days in a single week.  The full training programme runs over four weeks.


This programme is QQI (formerly FETAC) accredited and participants can earn a Level 5 component certificate in Effective Team Player as a result of participating in the programme and successfully submitting the required assignments.
