The effective use of technology by organisations and remote workers during the global COVID-19 crisis has rebooted thinking and planning in regard to how and where we work and learn. There is now an increasing acceptance that working and learning doesn’t have to be tied to an office or a location.

In today’s digital age of rapid information consumption, learning needs to be an accessible and available service, adapting to suit the infrastructure that we use and supporting people as they learn at different rates and in different ways.

Pathways to Success

Eliesha's "Pathways to Success" Management Apprenticeships have been designed to deliver improved flexibility that better fits with the requirements of a highly distributed workforce and the operational demands on them. This support transition is achieved through the effective use of our Virtual Learning Environment, enabling apprentices to experience content-rich, accessible and intuitive learning. Our technology-enabled learning and development programmes have proven to be effective solutions supporting large customer organisations, with complex needs and wide geographic spread.

We don’t use learning technology to be passive or simply transmit learning to an audience, we harness it to support each and every learner to enhance and accelerate their learning process and engage with their programme, shortening the time to learning impact. We aspire to help develop a culture of learning as an ongoing and continuous experience, not a separate 'place' for learners to go.

Our technology environment, incorporating virtual training delivery, is enhanced with one-to-one coaching and support to enable apprentices to “learn anywhere”. In addition, our engaging learning partner approach with apprentices enables and supports them to accelerate the application of their learning into improved workplace practices and performance improvement.

Eliesha’s "Pathways to Success" Management Apprenticeship Programmes are proving highly relevant to managers and their current challenges, as well as those challenges broadly anticipated in the near future - in the business recovery to a ‘new normal’. They are designed to develop the contemporary skills of employees required in a 21st Century workplace:

  • Designed to develop professional behaviours, build capability, upskill and modernise the mindset
  • Psychometric tools incorporated and used to inform and enhance individual and organisational awareness
  • Learning transfer at the heart of design and delivery, with programmes structured to enable managers/leaders to rapidly apply theory to real-life situations and management challenges, and embed development into day-to-day work activities
  • Improve manager and leader behaviours, driving improved performance, team productivity and results

Our Vision

From the senior leadership team, through the administration department and all the way to our training facilitators, every member of the Eliesha Training team is passionate about providing a supportive, enriching learning experience for our apprentices, whatever stage of their career they may have reached.

This stems from a belief that highly competent managers and leaders can make a huge difference to the success of their organisation and that the core management skills the new standards are centred around can be applied across all sectors and industries. Confident, skilled managers are proven to underpin enhanced productivity, greater staff engagement and a more positive working environment for everyone.

Eliesha’s vision is that all our management apprentices leave their programme with not just the skills and knowledge but also the self-belief and confidence to make a real contribution to the success of their organisation. Eliesha has years of experience developing managers and leaders – from supervisors to senior executives – and we delight in using this experience to help them develop and sustain fulfilling careers in management, regardless of the industry they work in.

Key Features

Eliesha delivers Management Apprenticeship programmes to meet the Level 3 and Level 5 Management Standards, both of which are equivalent to ILM and CMI Diploma-level qualifications. The new employer-designed, occupation-focused Standards mean that organisations can implement an apprenticeship programme that supports new and existing employees with the knowledge, skills and behaviours that they need to accurately fit the roles that the business requires in the current and future work environment.

Our management apprenticeship programmes offer an end-to-end service, including consultancy and skills assessment in relation to existing workforce development and talent management, through to effective delivery, successful End Point Assessment and post-learning evaluation of impact.

As a key benefit, we invest the following in our programmes as value added services, included with no increase to the Standard Rate:

  • Skills matrix self-assessment and review of existing role and qualifications
  • Alignment of workshop materials to required business vision, values and behaviours (for internal programmes)
  • Measurement and evaluation of learning interventions and post-learning impact using the Kirkpatrick Methodology
  • Line Manager engagement; improving apprentice engagement with the programme and enhancing their development dialogue with apprentices through shared reviews, optional attendance of induction session
  • Infrastructure investment – e.g. e-portfolio system – enabling full transparency of learning progression and tracking and evidence of the 20% off-the-job activities to be uploaded.

'Open' Apprenticeship Courses

Eliesha also runs Open Apprenticeship Programmes, designed for organisations to maximise their levy by placing delegates on a programme alongside employees from other companies in the same region. This allows for employers to use their levy funds on the kind of high quality, rigorous programme that is usually reserved for larger organisations able to provide a full cohort.

These programmes 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 business-relevant and efficiently embedded within day-to-day operations.

European Social Fund

Eliesha delivers Management Apprenticeships funded by the Education & Skills Funding Agency and the Apprenticeship Levy.

Non-Levy Apprenticeship programmes are part-funded by the European Union European Social Fund.
