The WIT Diploma in Supervisory Practice helps candidates to develop supervisory leadership competencies and to transition from an operative level to that of a supervisory manager role. WIT has developed this programme to meet the needs of organisations in the South East of Ireland who have communicated skill shortage within bio-pharma/medical devices, engineering and manufacturing sectors for Supervisory Leadership development. In addition, Level 7 award is the minimum level of recruitment of supervisors to these organisations.  More specifically the objectives of the programme arae as follows: Managing Self, Managing Team and Managing Operations.

Delivery

September 2019 - May 2020

To facilitate the adult, working cohort of students, we will used a blended learning approach to the delivery of this programme.  It will use a combination of asynchronous, online and synchronous, face-to-face, learning/teaching. The online element of delivery will utilise WIT's virtual learning environment, namely Moodle.  Tools for online delivery will include inter alia webinars (Adobe Connect) in addition to document and link provision, and the use of online testing.  Face-to-Face class based lectures will be 2 days per month (Block Release), a total of 6 days per semester and 4 hours online per month.  This delivery mode was specifically designed to suit both the requirements of working individuals and that of the organisation releasing an individual to undertake an educational programme. 

Cost

The employed will pay €4980 (10%) of the total programme fee with Government paying the remaining 90% of the programme fee on your behalf.  The fee will be payable only at the final stage of the application process when you have been offered a place. The course is fully funded for unemployed people and people returning to formal education - please see http://springboardcourses.ie/eligibility
