The level of interest showed a real appetite for learning and development among both existing and aspiring leaders. All these apprenticeships are funded through the apprenticeship levy.
Colleagues undertaking Level 7 programmes started in September and October and already have their first few months' study under their belt. Their feedback is that even in these times of virtual delivery, their studies got off to a really good start.
Colleagues undertaking programmes at levels 5 and 6 started their studies in January, again by virtual delivery while COVID-19 restrictions continue.
All of our learners are supported throughout their studies by their line managers and mentors, who have received guidance and support from the leadership development team as required. This is a significant undertaking for all involved and we wish all of our learners every success with their studies.
