The ILM Level 4 NVQ Diploma in Management (Combined Qualification) forms part of the ILM Level 4 Management Apprenticeship. It is ideal for managers moving into a middle management position, who still retain responsibility for processes but are more removed from day to day line management duties.

ILM Management Apprenticeships are structured training programmes undertaken in the workplace, combining on and off the job leadership and management development.

Leadership and management apprenticeships enable businesses to effectively develop their next generation of leaders and managers. They provide an opportunity to harness and train new talent, while ensuring company knowledge is retained in-house.

If you are aged 16-24, and you don't think you have the necessary 'work-ready' skills, we also offer Traineeships. Our 8 week courses provide the essential work preparation training, English, maths and work experience needed to secure your place on an Apprenticeship. More information can be found here

Additional Apprenticeship Information

Apprentices should work for at least 30 hours per week and an Apprenticeship takes between one and five years to complete, depending upon the level of Apprenticeship and the industry sector. Most of the training is delivered in the workplace, so you will learn the skills you need to do the job well. The rest of the training is given by Blackburn College, either at the workplace, in College or via e-learning. The training is specifically tailored to ensure you develop the skills the employer wants, giving apprentices a real advantage in the workplace.

This means that apprentices not only have better long term salary prospects, but they also have excellent progression opportunities, whether looking to study further or climb the ranks within the workplace.
