Supervisory Skills Course

Department of Extra Mural & Public Education

Francistown and Gaborone Campuses

Persons accepting the promotion from worker to supervisor often do not realize the extent of the new duties they are being assigned. All too often they assume that they will be doing basically the same work as before except that they will now be ‘‘in charge’’. In reality a major change in responsibility is occurring and an intensive effort to acquire new skills will be required. These skills are often in areas in which people never dreamed they would be involved and may take more effort to learn than the skills required of jobs they left.

This course targets

  • who are in supervisory positions.
  • who aspire to be supervisors.
