How does it work?
Operational or Departmental managers are responsible for providing strategic and personal leadership, communicating a vision and reinforcing the values and expectations of their organisations. Our apprenticeship programme provides an ideal environment for leaders to learn from each other, access current leadership thinking and challenge themselves by delivering initiatives, improvements and projects that make a difference to their team’s performance.
Our approach to delivering apprenticeships
Learning is at the heart of our apprenticeships with an emphasis on practical, interactive training delivery that recognises different learning styles, levels of experience and personal ambitions.

What people say?
“I just wanted to say a big thank you for your support and guidance throughout my
management course. I found our workshops hugely beneficial for both my management
development and personal development – I doubt I would have gone for a promotion
without it! The learnings from it have been invaluable and I have really appreciated your
wisdom and advice as well and I wouldn’t have wanted anyone else to have taught us”
“Great sessions with Alan, interactive and interesting!”
“A lot of thought has gone into ensuring we get the most out of the training and it supports
us in our development. It’s also been extremely helpful as I’ve transitioned into a new
management role. There is no comparison to my previous apprenticeship provider”
