Level 3 and Level 5 Leadership and Management Apprenticeships to Maximise the Value from your Levy

As award-winning leadership and management development specialists we are bringing our reputation for high-quality management development programmes and memorable learning experiences to the world of management apprenticeships!


Aimed at existing and aspiring leaders and managers our apprenticeships include professionally recognised ILM Diploma qualifications and are delivered with a creative, engaging and digitally enhanced Raise the Bar approach. Full funding is usually available too meaning it is an excellent way to maximise the value that can be derived from your Apprentice Levy Account whilst building your future leadership and management talent pipeline.


We are quite different due to our unique and privileged position which provides us with access to over 700 of the very best experts in leadership and management related areas – inspirational thought leaders, innovators and educators. Drawing on their expertise, insights and experiences we have created the best quality apprenticeships we could with the funding that is available for each learner.

Our Approach

Specialising exclusively in the delivery of Level 3 and 5 Leadership and Management Apprenticeships, we are experts in quickly establishing a deep knowledge and understanding of your business. We carefully contextualise delivery of our apprenticeships to align with your strategy, values, and culture ensuring that the learning is easily transferred into day-to-day leadership capability and sustainable performance improvement.


From pre-programme communication and engagement activities to end assessment, that’s our expertise and strength – taking great care to help you to create the future leaders and managers that your organisation really needs!

We develop an initial understanding of your leadership and management needs and explain how apprenticeships and the Levy can be utilised as the perfect solution, taking care to answer all of your questions as we go. Once you are ready to move forward we can support you in formalising Raise the Bar as your chosen provider, agree responsibilities, and input and guide the communications and engagement activities required for your potential apprentices.

Your programme will be branded for your organisation and content contextualised to reflect your key strategic priorities, values, culture and language. The programme will be planned to fit with your business and its operations. We will check learner eligibility for funding and the apprenticeship/ILM qualification and undertake all formal enrolment activities.

In addition to the sessions facilitated by management experts and wide variety of learning resources and support available through the apprenticeship, each learner will also be allocated their own dedicated coach. The coach will work with each learner to agree, monitor and support them through their own individual learner plan to prepare them for successful completion of the end-point assessment (EPA). If learners require additional support in Maths and/or English, their coach can also provide this too.
