    National Certificate in Business (First Line Management) (Level 3)
Note: This course contributes to the award of a National Certificate by the NZQA. VHNZ can apply for the National Certificate from NZQA.

Course Aim
The course specifically aims to inform, equip and qualify first line managers (team leaders, supervisors, or charge hands) appointed and/or promoted into positions where they are likely to be responsible for managing people, resources, and/or workplace operations.

Course Overview
Many organisations promote their best operators, trades people or artisans into supervisory first line management positions without providing them with the skills to do the job. Armed with expert knowledge of their business, but little or no knowledge of how to supervise, they are bound to struggle. The cost to productivity and the bottom line can be enormous. Experienced and qualified Vertical Horizonz (VHNZ) trainers can develop the leadership potential you have recognised.

The National Certificate in Business (First Line Management) (Level 3) programme provides your supervisors with the grounding they need to succeed in a practical way. It provides them with essential oral communication skills and some of the tools and techniques to best manage people, resources, and/or workplace operations. The programme assumes candidates may have had little or no formal training. And the programme has the flexibility to address the specific needs of your business.
