If you are looking to develop your leadership and management skills or those of your employees, this is the apprenticeship for you! The Team Leader apprenticeship is designed for new or aspiring managers, who may have just started on their leadership and management journey or alternatively have been for some time, but with no formal qualifications.


This apprenticeship standard will provide you with a firm grounding in all aspects of leadership and management to enable you to confidently lead and manage your team, knowing that your new found approach is based on the very best, current leadership and management thinking.

Utilising up to date content, learners can expect a mixture of face to face and online learning, with a combination of the use of virtual learning and workshops, to ensure that we meet all learner needs, to encourage successful completion and retention of knowledge.

You will acquire all the knowledge, skills and behaviours required to complete the Level 3 Team Leader/Supervisor on the job, to develop team leading and supervisory skills further, including the opportunity to practice and embed your new skills in a real work based context, whilst progressing in a team leading role.

Throughout this apprenticeship, learners will learn a multitude of topics, which have been effectively sequenced to enable learners to obtain information at the right points of their apprenticeship programme.
