Want to bring strong management skills to your business?

Give your staff the tools they need to lead.

The differences between good and bad managers are huge and can have significant implications on the entire team. Leadership qualities come naturally to some, but for many, the essential skills needed to provide workers with the right amount of support, challenge and motivation need to be learned. It doesn't matter how competent someone is in their role, without proper skills and training they're unlikely to make a successful leader that can derive the best from those in their team. 

The new apprenticeship standards encompass leadership qualifications in the form of the Team Leader Level 3 Apprenticeship. We've been training learners how to embed the fundamentals such as performance management, decision making, managing effective meetings and more on this apprenticeship to facilitate both their success, and the success of their entire team. By using your levy pot or by paying 5% of the total cost if you're a non-levy payer, you can invest in several management programmes, perfect for upskilling your junior level and middle management employees to make for a more motivated and fulfilled workforce.

Introducing Pareto's new Team Leader Apprenticeship Level 3

Over the last 25 years we have successfully trained over 100,000 executives worldwide in leadership skills, across a variety of industries and management levels. Leadership training is fundamental to personal development and sustained business growth and will lead to a happier, more fulfilled workforce. 

Our long history in training allowed us to make a seamless transition to working with the Team Leader/Supervisor Level 3 Apprenticeship when it was first announced. Our training allows our apprentices to enjoy the world class training we provide to every single client we work with. This apprenticeship empowers more businesses and their employees to benefit from our acclaimed training to propel business growth. 

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 will be a good fit for anyone at Junior Manager, Project Manager, Team Leader, Supervisor or Project Officer level in any industry.

For learners looking to advance their careers and perfect their leadership style, look no further than Pareto for your apprenticeship training provider. 

How does the funding work?

There are two funding structures for apprenticeships: 95% 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 to find out how you could be spending your levy fund on training to invest in and motivate your staff. If you DON'T pay into the levy, this means you only have to pay 5% of the value of any apprenticeship training you enroll your employees or new staff on.

The result of this move is that apprenticeships now offer a more cost effective option than many private training solutions. Here at Pareto, we are passionate about providing world class training for our apprentices, ensuring that they come to your business fired up, eager and ready to make a real difference.
