Become a skilled manager with our Operations or Department Manager Apprenticeship standard. Work with our highly experienced Trainers and Tutors, who all have extensive industry experience, to develop your knowledge and skills.
The Operations or Department Manager Apprenticeship is suitable for those who manage teams and/or projects. Key responsibilities may include creating and delivering operational plans, managing projects, leading and managing teams, managing change, financial and resource management, talent management, coaching and mentoring.
The entry requirement for this apprenticeship will be decided by each employer.
Apprentices who have not achieved an A*-C GCSE (or equivalent) in mathematics and English GCSE are required to gain Functional Skills in English and mathematics at Level 2 as part of this apprenticeship.
There will be a mix of face-to-face interactions, as well as virtual and digital learning with ongoing support from your Tutor.
You will typically spend 15 months undertaking a detailed programme of learning and development managed by your employer and training provider. You will attend a series of training sessions with your Tutor and Trainer, which is classed as off-the-job training. You will also be trained whilst in the workplace by your employer, this is called on-the-job training.
Once your manager and tutor agree that you are ready for the end point assessment and you have achieved all required elements, you will progress through the gateway to undertake the end point assessment methods listed above.
This will typically last 2 – 3 months and will involve you completing each assessment method.
The final grade is based on the performance in both of the assessment methods and they carry equal weighting.
The available grades for this programme are Fail, Pass and Distinction.
