Short Course - Production Supervisory Training Course

Production Supervisory Training Programme

This programme is a UCC/ICOS Skillnet Supervisory Programme specifically designed for those working in the Co-operative Dairy Sector. The key aim of the programme is to improve the capabilities of production supervisors and those wishing to enter production supervisory roles. Participants will build on existing skills and develop new management capabilities in a highly interactive learning environment. This course has a digital badge award upon successful completion.

Due to the restrictions associated with Covid 19, the first three days of the course are provided through live online sessions (24-26th November). The remaining content will be provided through a blend of pre-recorded materials and tutorials over a three week period. Each week will commence with a short live tutorial to introduce the topic. Students will then have 7 days to review the content in their own time. A live tutorial at the end of each week will allow for questions and discussion.
