He worked as Sales Director for Hays Specialist Recruitment for eleven years and now works as a recruitment business growth coach and trainer. He is a qualified NLP Master Practitioner and was recently named by Sage PLC as a Top 100 Global Business Influencer.

This Level 5 programme, accredited by the Insitute of Leadership and Management (ILM), is ideally suited to managers of teams and/or projects achieving operational or departmental goals and objectives as part of the delivery of their organisation’s strategy. The training will develop learners’ skills in strategic planning, business change and business process design.
Management Training – delivered by apprenticeships
Apprenticeships are a debt-free way of learning new skills. No matter what your age or previous work experience, they conveniently combine training with paid employment. Whilst many people still assume that apprenticeships are only for school leavers and those with no experience in their chosen career, this couldn’t be further from the truth. In fact, apprenticeships can be used at any career stage. Currently, the majority of apprenticeships are undertaken by an organisation’s existing staff. The vast majority these staff are over the age of 18.
Apprenticeships are an increasingly popular way of qualifications for leadership. This is because a business can use the Apprenticeship Levy to fund training that comes under the apprenticeship banner. Our ILM-accredited management courses are nationally-recognised apprenticeship standards.
The type and amount of funding depends on the size of your business. For instance, if your business pays the Apprenticeship Levy, you can pay for this training via your Digital Apprenticeship Service account. Alternatively, SMEs can pay through government co-investment, where your business pays a minor percentage of the cost. We welcome onto our management training courses participants from SMEs as well as from larger businesses.
