How does the funding work?

Management apprenticeships are fully funded through a levy scheme operated by HMRC which deducts .5% of annual payroll above £3 million.  Employers can access this fund when they employ approved Apprenticeship providers such as ourselves to deliver the programme.

Cherith Simmons can directly access the funding to pay for the apprentices’ training. Other schemes provide full funding for smaller organisations, which Cherith Simmons can access on your behalf.

Funding is currently worth from £4,500.00 per apprentice to £ 14,500.00 making the training effectively free except for the accreditation fee.

Who is the leadership & management apprenticeship awarding body?

Our apprenticeship qualifications are accredited by ILM or City & Guilds.

How is the apprenticeship programme delivered?

Face to face at your location using ‘Blended learning’, a mixture of pre-programme study, highly interactive workshops, and post-programme assessments to embed knowledge, skills, and professional behaviours.

Or through our Virtual Classroom system with highly interactive live tutor-led ZOOM workshops. 

Learning is supported with innovative and comprehensive materials downloaded from our Learning Management System.  Assessed work-based improvement reports give your organisation a measurable payback from the programme.

Programmes can be run for a single organisation or for a group of managers from different organisations through our Open Access Apprenticeship Scheme.
