Leadership & Management Apprenticeships

Business and enterprise skills are as adaptable as they are diverse, and students in this department have access to a fantastic range of opportunities, with general business courses working alongside specialist options in management, law, human resources, accounting and marketing. Each of these specialisms can be applied to all sorts of industry sectors including engineering, retail, finance, law and the public sector.

As an apprentice you will be working in a professional working environment, and will focus on adding value and contributing to operational efficiencies. You will be expected to show initiative, manage priorities, lead and manage a team and demonstrate problem solving skills, decision making and the potential for people management.

Dan Crumblehulme – Employer Engagement Manager is studying the Level 5 ILM Management Apprenticeship

“I joined Preston’s College just over 18 months ago to become the Employer Engagement Manager within the Apprenticeship Team. Previously I worked as the Training and Development Manager for a North West Training Provider within the Sport and Leisure Sector. After more than 10 years of teaching, assessing and supporting people through apprenticeships, I was excited at the thought of working for a large college that has much more to offer within the world of apprenticeships.

I also felt that Preston’s College could offer more opportunities for me to develop as an individual, and as a manager. I have always been keen to learn new things and the level 5 ILM Management qualification has given me the ability to enhance my knowledge, skills and behaviours as a manager.  I believe the course has enabled me to better support my team with more efficient and effective ways of working, and additionally, given me the confidence be able to manage more challenging situations.

I have found the business themes covered on leading innovation and change, managing for efficiency and effectiveness, and becoming an effective leader to be extremely helpful and insightful during the current challenging times. Furthermore, I have really enjoyed learning about some of the theories and approaches covered within the management course, and I have tried to implement these in my day to day activities.”
