TMD3 – VTCT (Skillsfirst) Level 3 Diploma in Team Management (RQF)

Qualification summary

This qualification has been designed to meet both employer and individual demand for learners to meet the knowledge and competences outlined in the Team Leader/Supervisor Apprenticeship standard. These include:

  • leading people
  • managing people
  • building relationships
  • communication
  • project management and
  • finance. 

The primary target group for this qualification would be all Apprentices who are enrolled on a Team Leader/Supervisor standard. As a ‘stand-alone’ qualification, however, it would also appeal to learners in any sector that involves management and leadership responsibilities, such as, but not limited to:

  • first line managers
  • assistant manager
  • senior supervisors 

and graduates or people looking for CPD utilising advanced learner loans (ALLs).

The qualification aims to give you an opportunity to develop your management performance within your working environment, become more effective in your role and to progress in your career. If, however, you see yourself as a Team Leader, rather than a Manager, you should consider the Level 2 Diploma in Team Leading. 

Learners who achieve this qualification could progress onto the:

•  Level 3 Diploma in Managment (RQF)
•  Level 4 Diploma in Principles of Business Administration (RQF)

To achieve this qualification, you will need to achieve all ten mandatory modules
