Senior Leadership Programme Apprenticeship Level 7 Apprenticeship England
Level 7 is certified by the Institute of Leadership and Management
Please contact Kate Burke Apprenticeship Development Manager to discuss the application process.
The Level 7 programme is not about learning a few leadership tips. It is designed for those who want a cultural transformation of their workplace.
This is not for the faint-hearted. You need to be brave, positive, open minded and committed to some hard work. This will be rewarded with real tangible results. By creating self-managed teams, you will unlock the strengths, ideas and potential of everyone and help drive the sustainable success of your organisation.
The apprenticeship is based on skills, knowledge and behaviours and you will be required to complete assignments and record what you have learnt and how you have applied it. You will also be required to complete an End Point Assessment which includes a test of knowledge, a professional discussion and an interview.
Spread over two years, the Level 7 programme will include:
- Monthly face-to-face sessions (either online or in the classroom)
- Group coaching between each session
- Creation of groups of five to six to collaborate with, and buddies to keep in regular touch with
- Use of an online portal with a wide range of resources
- Keynote speakers that are at the cutting edge of new ways of working
- Visiting a progressive organisation
You will be expected to complete at least 6 working hours per week in ‘off-the-job’ training through the duration of the training programme. These 6 hours per week will include training, coaching, assignments, work activities, projects, research, and reflections.
The eight core modules include:
- Cultural Foundation
- Working with change, uncertainty and risk
- Strategic Clarity
- Building Empowered Teams
- Stake Holder engagement
- Financial acuity and agility
- Innovation and creativity
You need to be a senior leader of your organisation (CEO, Director or Head of Department), with the ability to implement the ideas you learn. This will be rewarded with real tangible results. By creating self-managed teams, you will unlock the strengths, ideas and potential of everyone and help drive the sustainable success of your organisation.
This is a Level 7 qualification and the equivalent of a postgraduate degree or MBA. But you do not need a degree to join the programme.
However, English and maths L2 (GCSE A*-C or equivalent) are required elements of this programme and you will need to provide your certificates. If you cannot provide your certificates you will need to achieve Functional Skills L2 English and/ or maths prior to taking the end point assessment. If you haven’t got your GCSE (A or O Levels or equivalent) certificate, you may be ablet to obtain it from the awarding body or from your school. However, if you can’t, you will need to take the relevant Functional Skills Level 2 exam.
