Every manager wants their team to be a safe, productive, and positive space — but what is the best way to achieve this? Through this new manager programme, first-time managers will gain the practical skills they need to manage their teams successfully. Participants will come away feeling prepared and ready to succeed in their new role.

The new manager programme starts with a self-assessment to identify what each participant feels they want to get out of the session, ensuring the programme is focused on individual goals and tailored to each participant.

A series of in depth and insightful virtual workshops centred around each topic, enhanced by self-led learning, enables participants to gain practical skills and strategies.

With tasks that build on the knowledge gained from the virtual workshops, designed to embed the training received, they provide insight and context to the workshops, enabling participants to tailor the workshop to suit their own goals. By the end of the new manager programme, participants feel prepared and confident in their new role as a first-time manager.
