Study Method – Online and On Campus
We have partnered with Mindful Education to deliver this course through our Online and On Campus model.
Online video lectures are available on demand, and can be viewed from your phone, tablet or computer, meaning you can choose how, when and where you want to study. Each lesson lasts around 45 minutes and is accompanied by animations and motion graphics to bring concepts to life. Exercises, interactive case studies and analytical tools help to enhance the learning experience further.
On campus, you benefit from regular college classes – without having to commit to attending multiple evenings each week. Experienced tutors will discuss and reinforce what you have learnt during your online study and are on hand to provide guidance on progress and assessment. Discussion and debate with classmates will help you apply theories to situations you face in the workplace.
How will I be assessed?
Apprentices must pass the end-point assessment in order to achieve the apprenticeship certificate.
The end-point assessment for the Team Leader/ Supervisor Apprenticeship involves a review of the apprentice’s portfolio of evidence which is collated during their work/ study time; an externally set knowledge test; and an interview/ competency-based discussion relating to the apprentice’s Continual Professional Development Log.
Individual employers will set the selection criteria for their apprentices though most will be expected to hold 5 GCSEs at grade 6 (C) or higher. Prior experience may also be considered. Apprentices should also have achieved qualifications in English and mathematics at a minimum of level 2 or equivalent. Where this is not the case, apprentices must complete these by the end of the Apprenticeship.
Upon successful completion of the apprenticeship, there is an opportunity to study CMI courses at level 5 and up to level 8.
Learners who are aspiring to a management role may progress to roles such as Team Leader, Supervisor, Project Officer, Shift Manager or Foreperson
This Apprenticeship will typically take 1½ years to complete but can take less depending on the prior experience of the individual and the specification of the employer.
