I am an Graduate Trainee working on a new project to design and implement a development programme for First Time/Line Managers within the business. The aim of this programme would be to give these Managers the necessary skills and competencies to become confident and effective in their new roles.

As a starting point, I am currently researching what issues these Managers face in their roles and what specific training they require to carry out their role to a high standard.

Does anyone have any experience of developing a similar programme in their business? If so I would be grateful for any advice.

What issues do you find Managers are most inexperienced at dealing with? (e.g. Absence Management, Performance Management) Are there specific issues that stand out from disciplinaries/tribunals?

Many thanks for any help you may be able to offer.
