Course Aim

The aim of the QQI Level 6 Team Leadership programme is to equip the learner with the relevant knowledge, skills and competence to work as an effective leader and member of a team, independently and/or in a supervisory capacity.

The programme looks at the principle theories and styles of leadership plus the role and key functions of a team leader including motivation, communication, planning, goal setting and delegation.

Organisations are fundamentally about people working together to achieve set goals and objectives. Team Leaders and Supervisors therefore need to create effective teams which are all working interdependently with cohesion and team spirit to reach the organisation’s common objectives.

The Team Leader or Supervisor’s 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.
