Who is eligible for the Operational Manager Apprenticeship Level 5?

This apprenticeship is suitable for people in roles such as Operations Manager, Regional Manager, Divisional Manager or Department Manager in any industry. 
The course can be tailored to suit employer business requirements, ensuring learners achieve their maximum potential and deliver the knowledge and skills their business needs.  With 80% of learning on the job, this is a qualification designed for all businesses who rely on a leadership and management structure for their growth. 

How does the funding work?

You'll probably be aware that your levy payment is held in your HMRC digital account, from which monthly payments are made directly to your training partner as your staff receive their apprenticeship training. If you don't use your levy pot within 24 months, the government reserves the right to transfer your fund to other employers, so making the most of your investment and acting quickly is key. You can use your levy pot to fund the entire apprenticeship. Check out our guide to the apprenticeship levy.
