not yet familiar with moodle so maybe wrong... and suggest waiting for one of the regular folks to come around.
meta courses. (need to turn it on some place in site admin menu if memory serves) meta courses allow folks to inherit roles from other courses or vice vs. if memory serves.
not sure if automatic way, but if need be you could enrol teachers for example as students in a managment course. and go through site admin menu -> courses -> (links) to hide category from view. possibly.
*points up to top of www.moodle.org website* "documentation" or rather docs.moodle.org and look up meta courses.
you can change version of the doc's ((look for search box top right corner... just to left of that there is a drop down menu to select a different moodle version))
