The Diploma in Supervisory Practice is a 30-week, 60 credit, Level 7 Award that provides participants from diverse backgrounds with the requisite business knowledge, skills, mind-set, & tools to become practicing supervisors. Industry research shows that the Southeast has an immediate shortage for operators, team leaders, and supervisors, particularly within the Bio-Pharma/Medtech, Engineering & Manufacturing sectors.

Specifically the objectives of the programme are:
Managing Self
Develop the professional and personal development of the candidate for the role of a Supervisory in terms of transition management, listening skills, problem solving, decision making, time management, CV development, self-development and self-awareness in terms of advanced personal and interpersonal skills. The modules associated with achieving this objective are: Self-Management and Supervisory Transition Management.
Managing Team
Develop key supervisory leadership skills related to the effective management of the interpersonal relationships within a team, specifically team development, motivation, conflict management, influencing, delegation, coaching, performance appraisal. The modules associated with achieving this objective are: Supervisory Leadership and Team Coaching.
Managing Operations
Students will apply operational excellence and lean practice for process efficiency in a Supervisory position. The modules associated with achieving this objective are: Lean Operations and Performance Management

Delivery

The programme is primarily designed for people in full-time work and seeking employment. 
The programme is delivered virtually through pre-recorded lectures, live tutorials, virtual Mentoring Q&A sessions, and enabled through the virtual learning environment. 
There are no required face to face on campus sessions.  The programme has been designed so that most of the programme content is either pre-recorded or recorded live. Students can engage with materials at their own pace.  
We strongly recommend students attend the live tutorials once a month. This enables a more rounded student experience and engagement with lecturers and fellow students. Additionally, it provides insight to understand content and further their skill development.   All live tutorials are delivered on a Friday or/and a Saturday once a month.   Virtual Mentoring Q&A sessions are scheduled once a month to help students who have questions regarding content, assignments & submissions.
