Scottish Engineering - First Line Management Training 2021

1st September 2021 10:00 am

We’re delighted to announce that due to popularity, we will be running a third cohort of our First Line Management training programme, a nine-session online training package aimed at those on the first rung of supervision and management.

We’ve run successful Supervisor Training as a classroom event for a number of years which has proved really popular, and we will continue to offer classroom-based learning when it is possible to do so. However, lots of us have got used to spending a good proportion of our working time online, and moving this learning online allows for much better flexibility.

We’ve also changed the programme on the course to include more detail on some of the things we know create issues for managers; new sections on absence management, more detail on performance management, communication, and dealing with difficult conversations are all refreshed or new to the programme for 2021.

Each module will be tutor-led and the courses will be delivered via Zoom – that means we can have break out sessions, whiteboards and still interact as we would in a classroom setting. We have case studies, real work examples, and a chance to network.

Alongside that, we have developed a learning and development plan; this helps you identify the areas you want to develop through the programme, in tandem with your manager, and reflect on that after and between sessions. It’s for you – we don’t mark it or collect it – but as this is a programme, it gives you the chance to see your learning journey through the course.
