Management Apprenticeship Standards


Sysco Business Skills Academy are now delivering Apprenticeship standards in our specialist areas. The Apprenticeship Standards are programmes of learning and development that have been designed by employers. They offer flexibility in delivery and are intended to increase the effectiveness of outcomes for apprentices and employers. The Management Apprenticeship Standards have been developed to identify and develop talented managers and team leaders. By developing new managers, your organisation will create a talent pipeline, preparing you for succession of staff.
Sysco Business Skills Academy was one of the first training providers in the UK to deliver Management Standards. Our delivery is designed entirely to suit the needs of both employer and learner. This includes blending our learning solutions to include on-line e-learning in addition to face to face delivery. We deliver the complete learning and development programmes for the new Apprenticeship Standards at Levels 3 and 5. If you want to get yourself noticed within your organisation, a Management Apprenticeship will give you the springboard you need.

The level 3 Management Apprenticeship will help your organisation to develop managers from within. Identify and nurture your talent and focus on the most important part of your business, your people.

Testimonials...
  • Sysco provided a clear, organised format to the course and provided good tutor support and subject knowledge whilst delivering a variety of topics, activities and assessments. This allowed for an interesting and enjoyable completion. I received regular support during tutor and one to one sessions and the apprenticeship identified the challenges and tasks for my intended promotional role.

  • Just from reading some of the course materials I was able to see that the apprenticeship would help with my day-to-day running of my department and could help a great deal when I wish to progress to senior management. My tutor was always on hand to offer advice & support and their response to email queries was really quick.

  • I would recommend Sysco as the Learning has been first class along with the use of the Leaning Assistant technology. Their tutor was knowledgeable, friendly, approachable, very good communicator and a great ‘people person’. They made the sessions enjoyable and very informative. The apprenticeship has not only helped me understand the challenges I face in my role but it is starting to help deal with all these challenges on a day to day basis
