ISO 18404:2015 Lean6 Yellow Belt Certificate + Institute for Apprenticeships Improvement Technician apprenticeship standard Certificate

With a minimum 95% of the cost of training covered by the Government, your people will work towards the Improvement Technician Level 3 apprenticeship, along side the ISO18404:2015 Lean6 Yellow Belt Certificate.

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, the learner has 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 sample project charters, or applying their new skills in your workplace through implementing techniques they’ve learned with Whyy?, they require the time to develop and become accomplished change practitioners 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 through assessment methods which will test them, but will prove valuable for their careers in change management.
