Team Leading - Level 2 Apprenticeship at Middlesbrough College

Course description

Apprenticeships allow 16+ year olds to start work and earn a wage, while learning new skills that lead to nationally recognised qualifications. Apprenticeships are designed with the help of employers in the industry, so they offer a structured programme that takes Apprentices through the skills needed to do a job well. Most of an Apprentice's training takes place on the job but they will also have to complete off-the-job training within the College. This qualification is designed for new and aspiring team leaders. It gives an in-depth introduction to the role and responsibilities of a team leader including the core skills to lead a team successfully, motivation techniques to get the best from people, the confidence to tackle difficult issues like underperformance and tools to develop as a leader. The apprentice NMW applies to all 16 to 18 year old apprentices and to those aged 19 and over in the first year of their Apprenticeship. If the apprentice is aged 19 and / or has completed the first year of their Apprenticeship, the employer must pay the NMW appropriate for their age. A breakdown of wage rates is available on the GOV.UK website.
