First Line Management and Supervision Skills Training Course (One Day)

Overview of our First Line Management and Supervision Skills Training Course

The role of the first line manager or a supervisor is arguably one of the most important tasks in any business. Achieving high levels of commitment and motivation from front line staff as well as meeting the needs of your customers and your managers at the same time is pivotal if the business is to achieve success.

One Day Course - Timings: 9 am to 4.30 pm.  London timings may be adjusted to 9.30 am to 5 pm.

Our small group training courses allow for plenty of time for specific discussions and sharing of experiences.

We also offer the option of virtual training/coaching.

You also have the option of booking on a follow up training course to further advance your skills and knowledge.  We recommended you book three months after attending this course.  See our Advanced First Line Management and Supervision Skills Course.

Testimonials for our First Line Management and Supervision Skills Training Course
The First Line Management and Supervision Skills course was extremely beneficial & tailored to suit our company’s needs, not just generic as some training programs can be. Mike added the personal touch which we all appreciated and felt any questions we asked were answered with our business in mind. We all came away feeling more confident in our roles and have already started to put into practice some of the new skills we learnt. All in all we would definitely recommend the course & Ripley Training to anyone & the next course is already booked with them!
