I have a question regarding SharePoint Teams creation. Currently the option to create a SharePoint team Site is not enabled for me. If IT does not wish to enable this for the entire organisation, is it possible via admin centre for them to enable it by user rather than a blanket enable?
If the site was created by IT, it would not allow me autonomy for template selection etc so i am hoping it is possible to enable per user and make me an exception.
Also is disabling this a good approach per organisation. I am failing to see the advantage of disabling it from a control perspective.

From the Admin Center UI, it is only possible to enable/disable site creation for all users: Manage site creation in SharePoint - SharePoint in Microsoft 365 | Microsoft Docs
A more granular approach can be achieved by specifying who can create Office 365 Groups (which includes SharePoint sites) as described in this article: Manage who can create Microsoft 365 Groups | Microsoft Docs
Your organisation may have taken the decision to restrict site creation from SharePoint and OneDrive to prevent 'site creep' and might have already adopted the Office 365 Group approach (above). It's certainly worth having a conversation with them so that you (and the organisation) can take advantage of the collaborative features in Microsoft 365.
I hope that helps.

Thanks @PeteCox365. It sounds like there is a solution then in providing office 365 group access (i do not think my IT team was aware of this post our conversations).
I have a scenario where i would like to create a sharing platform for a team involving document storage, collaboration, MS teams and power Bi visuals (all users to have pro license). The team will consist of external members (all data to be shared with them will be confidential and ultimately they can be thought of as internal employees on a external domain).
Do you see any issues doing this through sharepoint teams?
