Developing Your Programme

Key to the success of your apprenticeship programme will be for our team to work in partnership with you to develop your programme so that it reflects your mission, values and behaviours, harnesses core working practices, terminology and that it is relevant to each and every learner and their role.

Working in partnership with our curriculum experts we will develop a programme that is unique to your organisation and your learners.

The programme will be designed around your exact requirements to ensure that you receive real, tangible outcomes that can be evidenced in the workplace – whether that’s in a physical office or if your learners work from home.

Programme Structure

This programme has been designed in a way that will maximise the performance of each learner. Learning the theory of a topic is great but it’s what the learner does to embed the learning and actually use it, that matters most.

All learning is reinforced with ongoing coaching, online resources and off-the-job activity to bring it all to life.

Each part of the programme supports the learner to apply their knowledge and skills via INTENT – IMPLEMENT – IMPACT.

  • What did they change and how?
