The Level 3 Team Leader Supervisor apprenticeship will support those taking the initial step to becoming a manager, or who have recently been appointed to a junior management role, and will see the apprentice take on extra responsibilities such as project management or leading a team of other employees.

The apprenticeship has been designed by the Gloucestershire-based apprenticeship company with the BMF. AMG runs the BMF Apprenticeship Plus apprenticeship programme.

The course will be delivered virtually through tutor-lead classes and workplace-learning with all resources available online.

“Those successfully completing the apprenticeship will receive the Certificate in Merchant Management,” said Apprenticeship Management Group director  John Henry. “To be involved in creating a programme has been great for the company. Carmen, who works with the BMF for us, has been fantastic in getting this over the line over a lockdown. Hopefully now we can roll this out successfully.”

The apprenticeship is only available in England and the course fee may be covered by the Apprenticeship Levy or Government Apprenticeship Funds.
