What is an Apprenticeship?
Apprenticeships have been introduced to meet the needs of both young people and business. They offer quality of work based training, as an alternative to full-time study, leading to nationally recognised qualifications for well motivated young people. You should be aged 18+ and be employed as a team leader or manager. Apprenticeships give you the opportunity to gain skills and nationally recognised qualifications sought by employers throughout industry.
The Insitute of Leadership and Management (ILM) Level 2 Diploma in Team Leading has been designed for team leaders with a degree of authority for managing resources, looking to motivate their team members as well as achieve agreed outputs. The ILM Level 3 Diploma in Management will allow practising first line managers to develop their management skills, gaining the knowledge, skills and understanding required to demonstrate their occupational competence. Successful candidates can expect to benefit from enhanced career prospects within management and leadership.
Apprentices must have a Contract of Employment for a minimum of 30 hours per week and successfully complete a probationary period at work. In addition they must complete initial assessments in English, Maths and Information Technology. The initial assessments and interviews will be carried out at the college.
