Leading People

Participants will build a talent management vision and plan across their organisation supported by tools to manage every element of that talent journey for the organisation and the people within it.

Leading Operations

In this module, learners explore competing priorities in budget, people, technology, governance, and regulation to achieve successful outcomes in executing project plans. Performance metrics and function accountability are designed to ensure outcomes are aligned to the needs of the organisation and deliver sustainable ESG and regulatory performance.

Frequently asked
What support is available throughout the course to help me pass?

You will have access to your own Professional Learning Mentor and a dedicated Senior Leadership Tutor (if you are on the Senior Leadership Programme) throughout the programme. All Associates will also be provided with an online portfolio and Virtual Learning Environment. These will contain literature, videos and podcasts covering leadership and management theory.

I haven't done any formal learning for a long time, does that matter?

The average age of Associates on our programmes is 38 and so most haven't done any formal learning for a while. For this reason our Foundation Module is focussed on getting everyone back into a learning mindset.

Do I need to attend the training in person?

Each module will have face to face workshops that are delivered in various locations throughout England. However, there will also be a virtual option available for each module too in case you are unable attend each module in person. We want to be as flexible as possible for Associates to be able to take part in our courses so it can fit alongside your other commitments.

What qualifications do I need to take an apprenticeship?

This depends on the level of the apprenticeship you are interested in.

Associates for all programmes will need to show their GCSE certificates in English and Maths with a Grade C or will need to take an equivalency programme and exam.

For the NCLM’s Senior Leader Apprenticeship you will need a degree because this comes with a Masters.

We work hard to ensure everyone who can benefit from our programmes can join where possible so please get in touch so we can understand more about your qualifications and experience and how we can help you with your professional development.
