How does the training work?

To achieve the Pearson BTEC Level 3 Diploma in Management the individual must develop competence and knowledge across a broad range of management skills.

Our Trainer Assessor will make regular visits to the workplace to provide guided learning which progresses the apprentice through their Diploma.

All training materials are high quality and can be co-branded with any employer.

All training sessions are arranged conveniently with the apprentice to fit with their working day. Sessions can be timed around changing shift patterns or night shifts.

The apprentice must achieve a minimum number of credits (55) to complete their Level 3 Diploma. These comprise of five mandatory units and a minimum number of optional units which are chosen from group B and group C. See below.
