Women in Leadership Level 3

Women in Leadership
Level 3

Develop the skills, knowledge and behaviours required to take you to the next level.

Our Women in Leadership Level 3 initiative is a comprehensive management development programme which aligns to the current Team Leader / Supervisor apprenticeship standard.

Our focus is to impart the knowledge, skills and behaviours to stimulate a growth mindset, while inspiring and supporting current female leaders to realise their potential, understand possible barriers and instil confidence to make positive change.

In addition to the requirements of the Team Leader / Supervisor Level 3 standard, this programme also addresses specific challenges to new leaders / managers such as confidence, managing upwards and holding difficult conversations. As well as enrichment activities which further stretch understanding, with topics such as dealing with menopause at work, stereotyping, hepeating and getting your voice heard.

Did you know that we also have a Women in Leadership Level 5 programme for your senior leaders?
