How to become a Team Leader


SEEK Learning
Qualifications are not necessary to become a Team Leader but having a good understanding of or background in human resources or business may be an advantage.

  1. Complete a Certificate IV in Human Resources (BSB41015) or Certificate IV in Leadership and Management (BSB42015) through a TAFE or a Registered Training Organisation.
  2. Consider completing a Diploma of Human Resources Management (BSB50615), or a Bachelor degree majoring in human resources, business or management. These courses will take you 3 years to complete full-time, and you will need to have completed year 12 or gain special admission.
  3. You can work your way up from a junior role in the team you’re in by learning how to delegate with finesse while showing enthusiasm, initiative, sound judgment and conflict resolution skills.
