Level 5 Higher Apprenticeship in Management and Leadership
Course Overview

Apprenticeships are structured training programmes undertaken within a working environment. They use the skills and knowledge gained through work to provide learners with recognised qualifications. Apprenticeships can be undertaken by anyone over sixteen, whether a new or existing employee, and provide a great way of gaining a qualification whilst continuing to earn a wage.

We would expect the Apprenticeship to take one year to complete.
