To support you and your education, BCIT is adapting applied learning in formats appropriate to the unfolding global situation. Spring and Summer PTS classes are being delivered in an online format unless you are notified otherwise.

Course Details

This workshop is designed for new supervisors or people interested in leadership responsibility. Participants increase their self-confidence and leadership abilities and establish a foundation for further training in supervision and management. In this workshop the role of the supervisor will be explored and participants will learn the relationship between planning and controlling in organizations. Through a series of group interaction and experiential activities, participants will engage in problem solving and decisions making exercises, as well as delegation exercises.
