The Team Leader/Supervisor Apprenticeship is accredited by the Chartered Institute of Management. Staff learn on the job, applying new skills to their existing role. The apprenticeship is suitable for those who are, or wish to become, team leaders and/or supervisors. This includes individuals who are at the start of their career that wish to become team leaders/ supervisors as well as those aspiring or existing managers who may already have developed practical experience but who wish to develop their theoretical understanding of management skills further.
Study Method – Online and On Campus
We have partnered with Mindful Education to deliver this apprenticeship through our Online and On Campus model.
Online lessons can be accessed at any time, using a mobile, tablet or desktop - meaning apprentices can fit their study around work commitments, minimising disruption in the workplace.
On campus, apprentices benefit from face-to-face classes at College with an experienced tutor. A combination of classroom-based lessons, group exercises and discussion encourage apprentices to apply theory to real-life workplace situations.
This modern, flexible approach to apprenticeship training empowers learners, minimises disruption to employers, and delivers tangible results in the workplace.
Apprentices will attend college once every two weeks and will study online materials during allotted time at work.
The apprenticeship covers a wide range of business management skills and knowledge, including organisational performance, interpersonal skills and personal effectiveness.
Individual employers will set the selection criteria for their apprentices though most will be expected to hold 5 GCSEs at grade 4/5 (C) or higher. Prior experience may also be considered. Apprentices should also have achieved qualifications in English and maths at a minimum of Level 2 or equivalent. Where this is not the case, apprentices must complete these by the end of the Apprenticeship.
Apprentices must pass the end-point assessment in order to achieve the apprenticeship certificate.
The end-point assessment for the Team Leader/ Supervisor Apprenticeship involves a review of the apprentice’s portfolio of evidence which is collated during their work/ study time; an externally set knowledge test; and an interview/ competency-based discussion relating to the apprentice’s Continual Professional Development Log.
Upon successful completion of the apprenticeship, there is an opportunity to study CMI courses at level 5 and up to level 8.
Learners who are aspiring to a management role may progress to roles such as Team Leader, Supervisor, Project Officer, Shift Manager or Foreperson.
