These Apprenticeships are designed to give aspiring and practising team leaders and first line managers a solid foundation in their formal development as a manager. The programmes can be tailored to meet the needs of your particular industry and are ideal whether the learner is new to leading a team and want the tools and knowledge to make their team work successfully or they are a more experienced manager and want to further develop their management performance.

What training will they receive?

As the employer, you will be responsible for most of the basic knowledge and training. There will be no need for the learner to attend a college because they will be visited in the workplace by a qualified NLTG Tutor every 4 - 6 weeks.

Case Study

Lee Darbyshire at Sofology

As Inspections Supervisor at Head Office I found out about Apprenticeships through speaking to others who were already undertaking Apprenticeships with NLTG. After completing my NVQ Level 3 in Management, I progress to Level 4. Studying these qualifications helped me to become Global Inspections Supervisor, looking after all 6 of the Sofology depots nationwide.

I enjoyed the different types of tasks and assignments that were assigned to me, researching the different criteria and also the 1:1 learning aspect of the qualifications. Undertaking an Apprenticeship has helped me to offer advice and support to the depots, while also giving me clarity on a lot of things. It has helped me to become more confident in team management and to develop the thoroughness to see things through.
