All Apprenticeships are employer-led and are the responsibility of the employer, with support of training providers. The employer will normally provide induction training; manage the employee, including performance management reviews; conduct monthly 1-2-1s; provide support; provide workplace learning activities, shadowing opportunities, coaching, and mentoring; agree scope and content of an L&D project; provide ongoing and final feedback; co-operate with the requirement for 20% of the Apprentices’ time to be spent ‘off the job’ learning related to the L&D Apprenticeship Standard.
CMT will provide initial advice and guidance, clarify roles and responsibilities, agree a timetable, complete relevant apprentice paperwork, deliver training, monitor progress, provide learner support, provide feedback, help agree scope and content of project, register with appropriate bodies, support preparing the Apprentice for the formal End Point Assessment (EPA) and claim the final Apprenticeship qualification certificate.
Programme dates and locations will be planned by CMT which will be driven by demand. Please contact us to register your interest, or formally apply to join a Learning Set by completing our enrolment form.
For larger employers, this Apprenticeship will be funded through your Digital Apprenticeship Account – for smaller employers, not subject to the Apprenticeship Levy, the Apprenticeship will be funded 95% by the government and 5% by the employer. Costs for the End Point Assessment are paid through the overall Levy funding (up to 20% of the total Apprenticeship cost).
The funding CAP will be £6000. For more information on the funding CAP, contact CMT.
There is no mandatory qualification within the apprenticeship, however, apprentices wishing to complete an additional CIPD Qualification can choose to complete either the CIPD Intermediate Certificate (extra £1,000) or the CIPD Intermediate Diploma (extra £1,600) in Learning and Development. Successful completion will lead to Associate Membership of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD).
Option to take part in a 3-day residential event (an additional charge applies for accommodation which cannot be Government funded).
“I find that the workshops are really useful as this was something I was looking for when choosing a potential provider – I am not a fan of distance learning. It also allows you to meet other learners from other companies to learn from their experiences. I also really liked the idea of the Residential in Snowdonia; this is certainly a USP for Crosby and found this to be a great networking opportunity due to the groups being a mix of differing levels and disciplines (HR). Completing this course is part of my succession planning and on completion should aid my development in my career and gain a promotion.”
“I bumped into Matt Field, who had just had a review with Neil – He was absolutely buzzing about it and felt it went really well, just wanted to share the joy!”
“First day back in the office after the residential aspect of the Level 3 L&D Practitioner Apprenticeship I am currently undertaking with CROSBY MANAGEMENT TRAINING LTD. We took part in a variety of activities including navigation walks, gorge walking and raft building which were set to test our resilience, responsiveness and flexibility (literally in the case of gorge walking!) as L&D and HR professionals.
The residential certainly stretched my comfort zone and provided a valuable and refresing learning experience!”
