Level 3 Apprenticeship Overview Apprenticeships

The CMI Level 3 Team Leader/Supervisor Apprenticeship is for someone who can take responsibility for managing a team or discrete project. They can support, manage and develop team members, manage projects, plan and monitor workloads and resources. They can take responsibility for delivering operational plans, resolving problems and building relationships.

It is applicable to professional team leaders, first line managers and supervisors from all sectors - the private, public or third sector - and all sizes of organisation. It will typically take up to 18 months to complete, although the exact duration will be dependent on the previous experience of the individual.

The apprenticeship has been designed to provide access to development opportunities for as wide a range of individuals as possible. This includes individuals who are at the start of their career in leadership and management and who wish to take their first steps into professional management. It is also appropriate for those already in management roles who may already have developed practical experience but who wish to develop their theoretical understanding of management skills.

On completion, apprentices may choose to register as Associate members with the Chartered Management Institute and/or the Institute of Leadership & Management, to support their professional career development and progression. The assessment approach is critical, being robust, challenging and testing, and will ensure that apprentices meet the skills, knowledge and behaviour outcomes as defined in the Standard.

Level 3 apprentices will complete the following programme:

- Completion and achievement of the CMI Level 3 Diploma in Management
- Regular performance reviews between apprentice and line manager
- Development of a portfolio of evidence
- Feedback from line manager, peers and direct reports (including 180/360 degree feedback or equivalent)

The End Point Assessment will test the entire Standard, and be undertaken as follows:
- Assessment of knowledge through a test using scenarios, questions and responses
- Assessment of competency through competency based interview
- Assessment of portfolio of evidence
- Continuing Professional Development Log reviewed and professional discussion/Q and A session
