An apprentice story

Succession planning is a process for identifying and developing new leaders for your business who can replace existing ones when they move on. Succession planning increases the availability of experienced and capable employees who are prepared to assume these roles as they become available.

The great thing about a management apprenticeship, as offered by Priory Training, is that the management theory you learn fits with any school, academy or business. So, no matter what industry you are in, you will benefit as well as the company.

The Level 3 Management qualification is ideally suited to anyone who has recently acquired managerial duties who will benefit from support to develop their abilities further. It is ideal for managers of teams and/or projects achieving operational or departmental goals and objectives as part of the delivery of their organisation’s strategy.

Ling Moor Primary Academy recently went through the apprenticeship process with Catherine Binnie and Chloe Smalley and is a perfect example of how succession planning works.

Catherine said:

“I’m a strong believer in continued learning, and throughout my career I’ve taken training to keep myself up-to-date with the knowledge I need. When I started working on my Level 3 management qualification, I was amazed at the new skills and knowledge I developed. I am now the Apprenticeship Relationship & Learning Mentor for Priory Training. As well as developing new skills for myself, I discovered a passion for training others which has led me to a completely new role within the Federation and with Priory Training.”
