Supervisor skills training – ITD

Supervisor skills training helps those new to the role, or those who want a refresher, to gain ideas and guidance on what it means to be a supervisor. The role of supervisor is often the first management experience, so it is important to get it right.

Supervisor Skills training in 2015

Supervisor skills training is often required for those new to the role and those who need a refresher. It is common for those new to the role to have proved themselves in the functional role of their department and they are then promoted to a supervisor role. However this new role is very different and training is essential to ensure success.

Supervisor skills training with ITD

Our approach to supervisor skills training is designed to help those in a supervisory role with the key fundamentals, applied to their organisation and role.

Covering a broad range of subject areas the training is based on the participants’ issues to give them ideas and strategies to help in specific situations.

The supervisor skills course is for those who are either new to the role of supervisor or who would like to refresh their skills.

Frameworks for establishing yourself in the role are explained and applied to your situation. Challenges with the role are discussed and can be used as case studies in the classroom.

The result is a set of clear ideas on how to be a better Supervisor.

Typical challenges of participants on our supervisor skills training

  • “I’m not sure how my colleagues will react to my promotion, especially as I know one or two of them applied for the same position.”
  • “I want to know how to be a good supervisor.”
  • “I need to understand how to deal with difficult situations, especially where I need to be a bit tough with my former colleagues.”

How do we tailor your supervisor skills training to you?

  1. We discuss the role with you and the training needs, participant requirements and desired outcomes.
  2. We draft a training agenda with detailed content for your approval.
  3. Once agreed we pilot the session to ensure it achieves the objectives.
