Who is the course for?
The NVQ Level 2 in Team Leading is for those for individuals who have a responsibility for planning, allocating and monitoring the work of others and lead a team. It is suitable for people who have just begun a management role or who have both the ability and the opportunity to demonstrate recognisable management and leadership skills in their job role.
What does the course involve?
This programme will run on an individual basis and the assessor will guide on how to build a portfolio of evidence which reflects the learner's ability to lead at this level. The NVQ is related directly to job roles and performance at work. It will help to reflect on working practices and those of the team and consider possible improvements to make. It provides a personal development opportunity and enhances efficiency within an organisation.
Candidates must achieve a minimum of 17 credits. Completion of the mandatory units will provide 10 credits. The remainder will be achieved by completing a selection of optional units (depending on credit values and rules of combination).
- Manage personal development
- Develop working relationships with colleagues
- Communicate information and knowledge
The optional units cover a variety of team leading activities including; plan, allocate and monitor the work of a team, set objectives and provide support for team members, manage or support equality of opportunity, diversity and inclusion on own area of responsibility, support team members in identifying, developing and implementing new ideas, manage conflict in a team, lead and manage meetings, make effective decisions, manage customer service on own area of responsibility.
The assessor will help to identify the units most appropriate to the learner's role.
All candidates must be in an appropriate team leading role. Prior to enrolment an assessor will arrange to meet the learner and discuss their job role to ensure that it will afford sufficient scope to provide all of the evidence required.
What are the assessment methods?
The assessor will assess you in the workplace. There is no requirement to attend College. The assessor will help organise a portfolio of evidence which will include observations at work, testimonies from other people, work records and discussion.
How long is the course?
The NVQ can be started at anytime during the year and the expectation is that the NVQ will be completed within one year of starting.
