Details

The IQ IAM Level 2 Diploma in Team Leading (QCF) is a qualification aimed at individuals who intend to develop and gain formal recognition of their knowledge, understanding and competence of leading teams. The qualification is generic, so it is suitable for individuals working or with access to work in a variety of roles in which leadership is a core component.

In the mandatory units, learners will cover the essentials of managing personal performance and development, communicating work-related information, leading and managing teams, and understanding business. There are a range of optional units allowing learners scope to choose those areas most relevant to them, including but not limited to: developing working relationships, managing team and individual performance, managing conflict within a team, procurements, meetings, information storage, project participation, negotiation, presentations, customer service, innovation, collaborating with other departments, equality, diversity and inclusion in the workplace, health and safety and employee rights and responsibilities. The majority of the units are competence-based but there are also knowledge-based units. Objectives of the qualification include: preparing learners to progress to a qualification in the same subject area but at a higher level or requiring more specific knowledge, skills and understanding, meeting relevant programmes of learning, preparing learners for employment and supporting a role in the workplace.

This qualification is the combined component of the Intermediate Apprenticeship in Team Leading.

Progression

Learners who achieve this qualification can progress to the IQ IAM Level 3 Diploma in Management (QCF) using credits already achieved as there is an overlap of units.
