CMI Level 3 Diploma in Principles of Management & Leadership and Institute for Apprenticeships Team Leader / Supervisor apprenticeship

With a minimum 95% of the cost of training covered by the Government, your people will work towards the Team Leader / Supervisor Level 3 apprenticeship, along side the CMI Level Diploma in Leadership & Management.

At Whyy?, we assess every potential learner to check they’re eligible and will discuss what you want out of the apprenticeship as well as the learner.
To be eligible for an apprenticeship, your people need to be employed and working at least 30 hours per week, live in England and the apprenticeship content needs to be significant new knowledge and develop new skills.
Vital to the success of the apprenticeship, they have to be actively working towards the standards at least 20% of the time they are paid by you over a minimum duration of 12 months.

Whether that time is when they are having direct learning sessions, writing assignments, or applying their new skills in your workplace, they require the time to develop and become accomplished leaders over the duration of the apprenticeship…..your business will reap the rewards from this investment of time.

Once the learning has been completed, to assess that they understand and can apply their new knowledge, skills and behaviours, they will be independently assessed by CMI through assessment methods which will test them, but will prove valuable for their management careers.
