The future of work is exciting. But it calls for a new way of leading. With applied learning delivered in partnership with Mind Gym, apprentices will become leaders capable of unlocking the potential in themselves and their teams.
Leading others starts with leading ourselves. And that’s where our apprentices begin – understanding their own strengths, motivations, and styles.
Further modules focus on developing a high-performing team capable of making a big impact. The final module sees apprentices delivering those impacts, with the opportunity to choose a real business problem and create a plan to solve it.
At every turn, apprentices apply what they’re learning – an approach that's transformational. This includes Mind Gym workouts, hands-on workshops, and putting skills into action every day on the job. All with the personalised 1:1 support from an industry-expert coach.
Most qualifications have a difficulty level. There are 9 qualification levels. The higher the level, the more difficult the qualification is.
