Give your staff the tools they need to lead.
We've all experienced a bad manager in our time and some of us were unfortunate enough to be managed by one. It doesn't matter how competent someone is in their role, without the proper skills and training they're unlikely to make a successful leader.
This is where one of the new apprenticeships might prove very useful. Using your levy pot you can invest in several management programmes, the first level of these is the Team Leader Level 3 Apprenticeship, which is perfect for junior level and middle management.

Who is eligible for the Team Leader Apprenticeship Level 3?
Apprenticeships span from Level 2 to Level 7. As a rough guide, level 2 equates to 5 good GCSEs, with 6 & 7 comparable to a degree. The level 3 Team Leader Apprenticeship is an 'Advanced Apprenticeship', equivalent to 2 A-level passes.
Eligibility criteria for an apprenticeship includes having been living in the UK continuously for 3 years. For the Team Leader course specifically, employers can choose who they consider suitable but it should be a good fit for anyone at Junior Manager, Project Manager, Team Leader, Supervisor or Project Officer level in any industry.
How does the funding work?
There are two funding structures for apprenticeships: co-investment for companies with a wage bill under £3m and the apprenticeship levy for those over the £3m bracket. Check out our guide to the apprenticeship levy if you fall into the second category. If you're NOT a levy payer then ou're in the fortunate position of having the government fund 90% of your apprenticeship training costs. This means you only have to pay 10% of the value of any apprenticeship training you enroll your employees or new staff on. The outcome of this move is that apprenticeships now offer a more cost effective option than many private training solutions.
