The Leadership and Management apprenticeship has given me the opportunity reinforce my leadership knowledge as well as learn new leadership skills to importantly make me an effective leader, support my team through change and deliver an outstanding service to the people of Kent. My Leadership Skills Coach, Wendy has been brilliant, she was flexible, skilled and always available to talk through my thinking and how I will use my skills to impact continuous improvement for Kent Fire and Rescue service. I would highly recommend the apprenticeship route as a real way to develop leadership and management skills. Completing the apprenticeship provided me with a different option to the university route. It has also given me the professional accreditation of being a Chartered Manager with the CMI, through completing my End Point Assessment.
"We started working with Accipio back in December 2017 to deliver the Operational/Departmental Manager level 5 Apprenticeship. They offer a high quality of service, are very responsive and the assessors are really professional who provide regular support to our participants and track their learning progress. They have also shown great flexibility to accommodate our requests to meet individual’s unique needs and help them to overcome any challenges. Our second cohort started the programme in August 2018, and this has proved that Accipio is constantly looking at improving the process which reflected in better learners’ experience and programme completion rate."
“I chose to participate in the management and leadership apprenticeship as I felt I was at a stage in my career when it depends on more than just technical skills and a willingness to work hard. I also realised I needed soft skills, not least of which is the ability to take on a leadership role. I am only two leadership disciplines into the apprenticeship, and I am already applying the skills I have learnt which is having a great impact on my current role. I have applied a strategy for a leadership style that is right for me, which has enabled me to be more disciplined in leading myself before I can lead others. Developing situational awareness, inspiring others and empowering teammates. It has also taught me to be a discerning listener in resolving conflicts. Good leadership skills are essential to advancing my career. What a fanatic opportunity of having a blended learning package to engage in. I look forward to progressing through the apprenticeship.”
"I feel more enlightenment and empowerment following our session. The coach’s diverse skills make them hugely proficient at this role, they themselves exude – leadership qualities, avid listing, ability to steer strategic discussions in the right direction in a gentle way."
"Eye opening experience looking at team preferences and this is only the start of the programme."
