ilm NVQ level 2 in Team Leading Award
February 2009 to June 2010
Tameside Training Consortium responsible for promoting the workforce development of the independent social care providers in Tameside contracted LinQs to deliver the ILM NVQ level 2 in Team Leading award for the continuing professional development of team leaders/senior care staff in the sector.
Working with the Tameside Workforce Development Manager, LinQs designed programmes to underpin Care Standards. Candidates received distance learning workbooks and 6 full day tutor led leadership & management development workshops to provide a blended learning approach to support individual learning styles. The NVQ award assessment was supported by work based evidence assessments.
All of the 21 Team Leaders/Senior Care Staff on the programmes have achieved the ILM NVQ level 2 in Team Leading award. The course evaluation from candidates and their managers reported added confidence in their team leading role.
As further development to line managers in a care setting, the ILM NVQ level 3 Award in Management was delivered in Autumn 2010.
