Apprenticeships for continued professional development
Wed, 02 Oct 2019

Coming soon, there are some exciting new opportunities available for leadership and management qualifications through the apprenticeship scheme.

The apprenticeships complement the in-house programmes, including Introduction to Leadership Practice (ILP) and Certificate in Leadership Studies (CLS), which continue to run as normal. Staff can consider the most appropriate learning and development opportunity for their role as:

  • future manager, team leader or supervisor (ILP Level 3)
  • new manager, team leader or supervisor (ILP Level 3/Team Leader Level 3)
  • line manager, team leader or supervisor (CLS Level 4/departmental manager Level 5)
  • senior manager, operational manager, head of service or director (Chartered Manager Degree Level 6/Senior Leader Master’s Degree Level 7).

Available from Autumn/Winter 2019/2020, here are some of the great benefits of choosing an apprenticeship:

  • earn while you learn with no need for a student loan – the training costs are covered by the apprenticeship levy
  • achieve a nationally recognised qualification and gain professional accreditation/ membership
  • develop your career
  • build networks with colleagues in other organisations
  • eligible for an NUS card.
