Take the next step on your leadership journey

18 May 2023

Boldness, innovation, embracing change and thinking and doing things differently are all essential to our success in achieving high performance for Derbyshire.


We are now accepting applications to join the 2023 leadership apprenticeship cohorts.

Leadership apprenticeships support personal aspirations and continuous professional development, delivering benefits that are far-reaching for the individual and employer. Successful participants:

  • develop core leadership competencies and enhanced leadership confidence and performance
  • achieve a leadership and management apprenticeship which, depending on the level, could also include a qualification at HNC / HND, degree or postgraduate level at no personal financial cost as the funding is covered by the apprenticeship levy
  • are supported in their academic progress with the benefit of a mentoring relationship throughout the programme, except level 3 apprentices who are not required to have a formalised mentor relationship

Our programme of leadership and management apprenticeships is delivered in partnership with the University of Derby (incorporating Buxton and Leek College) and Derbyshire Adult Community Education Services (DACES). To find out more, why not attend a webinar? These are open to potential applicants and their line managers. Use one or more of the following links to register:

Closing date for applications is Friday 23 June 2023.
