Personnel/management Training

Recommended Posts

How I 'landed' in my role as a Playroup Leader, I'm not quite sure but I have and have been Leader for 2 years.

 

I started my 'childcare career' as a mum, then general committee, then Officer, then paid assistant after completing my NVQ3 and now Leader - this choice of career is far from what I did life before children!

 

Mostly I love it BUT I really struggle with managing the staff - I have a team of 7 with 5 totally behind me, helpful etc 1 is behind me depending on which way the wind is blowing that day, and the other......well - try as I might I never ever do right by this person (according to her)

 

I feel I need some sort of 'personnel' training has anyone done a course which they could recommend?

I love distance learning, and wanted to carry on with my studies without embarking on anything too heavy as I currently couldn't commit to EYPS or similar. I decided to add another string to my bow as it were, as I had previously been a manager in retail prior to having children, becoming a childminder and now a preschool manager, but I have no HR department in this role, and boy is it different! I have a team of 10, and I too have 2 staff that make it difficult at times, so I have just embarked on this http://www.distance-learning-centre.co.uk/...DIES_COURSE.htm They do a more specialised personnel one I think, but I went for this broader one. I have only just started and completed my first assignment, awaiting the result, but I enjoyed the first unit and it has already given me a confidence boost.

If you're looking for a course looking at the theory and techniques of motivation and leadership, I can recommend the Chartered Management Institute. You can find information about their leadership courses on their website here. I did the first part of the Level 5 award in Leadership and Management which I found really helpful both in working out what kind of manager/leader I am, and also tackling the day to day issues I face as the leader of a small team.
