Team Leadership Course (6N1948)

QQI Minor Award Level 6 - Further Education & Training

Organisations are fundamentally about people working together to achieve agreed goals and objectives. Team Leaders and Supervisors therefore need to develop effective teams which are all working interdependently, with cohesion and team spirit, in order to reach the organisationís common objectives.


The Team Leader or Supervisorís role is to focus on day to day performance of the team and its members. The Team Leader has responsibility for allocating tasks between team members, for ensuring that individuals are supported in the performance of their job role and that output conforms to the requirements of the organisation.
