Who is it for?
The Level 5 standard has been designed for middle to senior leaders to develop strategic leadership skills and knowledge.

Who is the awarding body?
We can run the apprenticeship qualifications through ILM or CMI.

What certification will the apprentice get?

  1. Level 5 Operations/Department Manager Apprenticeship
  2. Level 5 Diploma for Leaders and Managers

How is the apprenticeship programme delivered?

Cherith Simmons uses ‘Blended learning’, a mixture of pre-programme study that gives learners prior knowledge of the next subject on their journey, highly interactive workshops and post-programme work to embed knowledge and skills.

For best value for money we can run the programme in-house for a cohort of 8-16 apprentices.

Don’t have 8 apprentices for management? No problem – we will be running the programmes across England at our study centres. Call us on 01932 856565 for locations.
