North Lindsey College supporting the development of key leadership and management skills in our region

North Lindsey College have launched the new apprenticeships in leadership and management.

This new suite of Chartered Management Institute (CMI) apprenticeships provide valuable progression routes, from team leader to operations manager and up to the Chartered Management Degree Apprenticeship incorporating the BA (Hons) Professional Practice in Leadership and Management awarded by the University of Lincoln.The highly successful University Centre at North Lindsey College is leading on the BA (Hons) Professional Practice in Leadership and Management as part of the long-standing partnership working with the University of Lincoln.

 “We know that across the UK, and within our region, leadership and management skills are critical to business success and are a recognised area of skill shortage. We have been delivering management qualifications for over 15 years and with the new apprenticeship standards there are fantastic opportunities for employers to use their apprenticeship levy or access potential funding support to enable them to access learning and development that will really make a difference” says Cath Jackson, Training & Development Consultant at North Lindsey College.

 “These programmes can lead to sound improvements in the productivity, efficiency and effectiveness of key personnel; developing their skills in areas such as innovation, communication, problem solving, decision making and management of key resources.”

 North Lindsey College are currently offering the following programmes:

  • Chartered Manager Degree Apprenticeship (Level 6)
  • Operations/Departmental Manager (Level 5)
  • Team Leader/Supervisor (Level 3)

The delivery model has been developed with employer feedback and is built around module provision, to support employers by offering flexible attendance patterns to reduce workplace impact but add value to the learners’ experience. 

 North Lindsey College are seeing an increased demand for these programmes, due to the organisation benefits associated with them and the opportunity to support the progression and development of their teams, particularly where staff are taking on new roles and responsibilities. Employers can fund these via the apprenticeship levy, or for some SMEs paying 10% of the cost this can be as little as £500 per person.
