EDN’s Level 3 Team Leader apprenticeship is aimed at entry-level or mid-level managers. This programme focuses on managing the self and other people, developing relationships and delivering results.
This course takes a minimum of 12 months to complete.
What is a team leader?
A team leader is a first line management role in a business or organisation. Team leaders’ responsibilities could include a specific project, operational matters or managing a team to deliver a clearly defined outcome. Team leaders provide direction, instructions and guidance to ensure the set goals are achieved.
Team leaders work in the private, public or third sector and in all sizes of organisations, so specific responsibilities will vary, but the knowledge, skills and behaviours needed will be the same regardless of sector and industry.
A team leader’s key responsibilities can include:
- Leading projects
- Resolving problems
- Delivering operational plans
- Supporting, managing and developing team members
- Planning and monitoring workloads and resources.
Employers will set their own entry requirements in order to start on this apprenticeship, but typically requires five GCSEs at Grade C or higher.
On completion, apprentices may choose to register as Associate Members with the Chartered Management Institute (CMI) and/or the Institute of Leadership and Management (ILM) to support their professional career development and progression.
