Key Features

We deliver management apprenticeship programmes to meet the Level 3 and Level 5 Standards, both of which – in response to business-led requirements – are equivalent to ILM or CMI diploma level qualifications. The new employer-designed, occupation-focused Standards mean that organisations can implement an apprenticeship programme that accurately fits the roles required within the business.

Eliesha’s programmes can be aligned to your business goals and deliver improved outcomes for you, your people and your customers.

We have mapped our tried and tested face-to-face and e-learning content to both levels, delivering a blended portfolio of development interventions that have already been impactful for dozens of our public and private-sector learning partners.

Our management apprenticeship programmes are an end-to-end offer, including expert consultancy and planning, in relation to your existing workforce development and talent management, through to effective delivery and evaluation of impact.

As a key benefit, we include the following in our programme as value adds:

  • ILM or CMI registration or accreditation, as appropriate, for Level 3 or Level 5
  • Alignment of workshop materials to required business vision, values and behaviours
  • Measurement and evaluation of learning interventions and post-learning impact using the Kirkpatrick Methodology
  • Line Manager induction, improving apprentice engagement with the programme and enhancing their development dialogue with apprentices


From April 2017, apprenticeship programmes have changed. No longer the exclusive realm of young or new employees, they are open to everyone, regardless of their age and how long they have been at their organisation.


As part of these reforms, the Government is moving away from apprenticeship Frameworks, aiming to have them completely replaced with the new and improved apprenticeship Standards by 2020. Each Standard contains a list of the skills, knowledge and behaviours the apprentice will need to have learned and successfully applied by the end of the programme. As Standards are occupation-focused, a rigorous end point assessment requires the apprentice to demonstrate and evidence that they have all the required competencies to meet the standard and associated role.


Importantly, only training providers that have been approved on the Register of Apprenticeship Training Providers (RoATP) – like Eliesha – can be selected and used for delivery. Each apprenticeship level and standard has a funding rate cap set by the Government.

A Perfect Fit

We know how important it is that any training programme undertaken is a good match for your organisation and talent development needs. For this reason, we make a concerted effort to align our blended learning programme solutions to the context of your business objectives, workplace values and culture.

Our programme delivery minimises operational abstraction from your business and disruption for your employees. This means that our programmes are efficient, practice focused and workplace relevant, so that your apprentices will have an immediate impact upon performance and productivity.

Our Experience

We have an established history as a ‘high quality’ accredited centre with the Institute of Leadership and Management (ILM) and the Chartered Management Institute (CMI) – two professional industry awarding bodies that were influential in the design of the new apprenticeship programmes.

We have a successful achievement record and have delivered to Diploma levels – and above – for over 10 years. Our ever-expanding network of experienced, capable and qualified training associates, coupled with our commitment to thorough administration, planning, tracking, reporting and delegate support, is responsible for a 100% track record of ‘excellent’ or ‘very good’ evaluations for our interventions.

We have a reputation for rigour and quality in all of our work which, combined with consistent innovation in products and services, makes us respected, professionals in the Learning & Development Industry.

The CEO of CMI described us as “one of our marketing leading training partners” and said that they were “delighted with the quality of development, delivery and assessment” of our programmes. Likewise, we were described as “one of ILM’s most innovative and proactive Approved Centres” by its CEO, who also praised “the exceptional quality and the attention given to supporting [Eliesha’s] clients and candidates is consistently reported in all of their centre and EV visits.”

'Open' Apprenticeship Courses

Eliesha also runs Open Apprenticeship Programmes, designed for organisations to maximise their levy by placing delegates on an accredited programme alongside employees from other regional companies. This allows for employers to use their levy funds on the kind of high quality, rigorous programme that is usually reserved for large cohorts.

These have been launched in response to requirements for easy access to a training provider with the extensive experience necessary to ensure that the learning and development provided by the new apprenticeships are relevant to their their business and are efficiently embedded within its day-to-day operations and future plans.
