New Chartered Manager Degree Apprenticeships starting Autumn 2015

This modern apprenticeship has been designed for employers by employers.  A group of 20 employers from all sectors and sizes of organisations put their heads together to ensure this meets their needs for better managers and leaders across their organisation.

This is a fantastic opportunity and route to develop existing managers who may have significant experience but little formal developments.  It also develops the next generation of talent, providing a new career path option for aspiring managers, who want to earn while learning – and develop their management and leadership skills within the workplace.  An overview the assessment criteria and entry requirements can be found in the link below.

Chartered Manager Degree Apprenticeship

All apprentices will achieve a degree in business and management and full chartered membership of the Chartered Management Institute (CMI), as part of this apprenticeship.  The programme is available from this autumn and the Government will fund up to two thirds of the cost of the fees to meet the employer contribution. The apprentices will not pay any student fees and will earn as they learn.

What are the essentials of leadership?

A leader creates an environment where people consistently perform to the best of their ability. Some of us are natural leaders, whereas the rest of us have to learn how to lead.

To be a great leader, you need to be many things. To achieve that, there are a number of essentials required. For instance:

Giving a clear sense of direction. If you don’t know where you are going, how do you know when you get there, or what path to take?
Understanding who the customer is. Who really is the customer? A customer is the recipient of a good, service or product. They could be internal or external.
Communicating clearly. What is it you are trying to tell them. If they get it wrong – perhaps they didn’t understand.
Being flexible. Accept change and implement it.
Taking risks but not to the detriment of your department or business.
Building a strong team around you. Have clear goals and objectives from the start. Delegate and regularly review. Respect advice and suggestions.
Listening with humility (be open to what you are hearing) and acting with courage. Be brave.
Earning reward through building trust. Build a culture of competence, honesty and reliability along with good communication and common vision.
Becoming a leader requires time and patience. If you would like some help, or your business would like a Leadership and Management course delivered to suit your business needs, then email info@peptalk-uk.com for more information.

This course is suited to existing managers, directors, these new to management or senior supervisors.
