  • What is the Difference Between the Team Leading Apprenticeship and the Management Apprenticeship?

    The big distinction between the two apprenticeships is that Team Leaders lead and Managers manage.  The team leaders take instruction from their managers and bring their team along with them.  The managers should be the ones making the decisions, thinking strategically for the business and communicating to their Team Leaders.

    The management apprenticeship would be ideal for someone new into a management role, or someone who is in the role but needs training to improve competency.  Invariably, most managers move upwards into the role with little or no training, so the apprenticeship will equip them with the skills required to be fully competent.

    For the team leading apprenticeship, the learner must be leading staff.  For the management apprenticeship, the manager must be managing staff and/or managing a process.

  • What Support Will I Receive Throughout My Apprenticeship?

    TTS is consistently praised for its support of its apprentices. We have a dedicated Careers Development Officer to provide ongoing pastoral care to ensure you are developing well and integrating successfully into your workplace, and to provide you with regular feedback on your progress.

    Your Careers Development Officer is also the link between you and your employer and is there to make sure any issues, on either side, are resolved quickly.

    Proof of the quality of support available is the large number of employers who themselves came through an apprenticeship with TTS and want a similar, quality experience for the staff they employ.
