Unlock the Future with Management Apprenticeships
Listen to some of the remarkable examples of how Management Apprenticeships have positively impacted individuals, their career development and the wider community.
Skills For Life
This year’s theme reflects on how apprenticeships can help individuals to develop the skills and knowledge required for a rewarding career, and businesses to develop a talented workforce that is equipped with future-ready skills.
We sat down with some of our own management apprentices, to see what impact their apprenticeship was having for them.
"The apprenticeship has had a huge impact on my working life. I started on the frontline so it was a very clinical role... The apprenticeship enabled me to apply for jobs and gain experience in roles & responsibilities I would never have been able to have before that. It essentially fast tracked me to a management position."
Mozammil Ramzan / Programme Manager for NHS England, Level 7 Management Apprentice
"We need more diversity of thinking...around 80% of the workforce is male with an average age that’s increasing all the time.... [apprenticeships] have been effective in bringing that more diverse population in."
Andy Rayner / Director of LEAP Apprenticeships and Early Careers, Travis Perkins plc
"[The apprenticeship] has had a profound effect on the business. I can’t think of a part of the business it hasn’t affected...We tried to work out the impact and we got to at least £200,000."
David Conn / Director of Broadley Speaking
