The team leading intermediate apprenticeship is is designed for those who supervise staff by planning, allocating and monitoring work. It is ideal for those who are new to management or hold a role such as assistant manager, working under the close direction of someone more senior.
The management advanced apprenticeship is is designed for those who have autonomy in their leadership role and will normally have the authority to plan and implement changes to processes and personnel.
The management higher apprenticeship is the perfect way for middle managers to refine their knowledge whilst developing the key skills and attributes for specific roles.
What you learn will depend on your job. In all cases you will complete:
A certificate or diploma This has two purposes. First, it will develop your knowledge and understanding of your area of work and the underpinning management theories that apply. Second it will ensure that you are applying your knowledge and understanding at work on a consistent and competent basis.
You will be tested in a number of ways. More formal tests and written work will demonstrate your knowledge and understanding. You will demonstrate competence across all of the main areas of your job via a portfolio of evidence (which can take a variety of forms). You will work on your portfolio, in partnership with your trainer and manager, over the duration of your apprenticeship.
At the end of the apprenticeship your work will be independently marked by the awarding body for your qualification.
Functional skills in English, maths and IT (not required for the higher apprenticeship). Unlike academic exams, these are designed to ensure that you have the skills in maths, English and IT that you need at work.
