About the course

Learning & Development (L&D) professionals play a critical role within any organisation, contributing to and influencing the performance of an individual, a team and the wider business.

We have created the L&D practitioner level 3 apprenticeship programme with industry specialists to ensure that the learning experience you receive is the best it can be. From the topics and quality of curriculum through to the amount of support and face-to-face training you receive.

Throughout the apprenticeship, you’ll be supported by highly skilled, sector expert trainers, helping you every step of the way. Our exciting 14-month blended learning programme (followed by End Point Assessment) will help you to achieve your future career goals.

This course is cost-free to learners. All our programmes our regulated and funded through the government or the apprenticeship levy.

Is this course right for you?

Typically, the apprenticeship is for those who are working alongside colleagues in HR teams (such as employee relations, reward, recruitment) and you’ll often be working with different teams across the business.

This level 3 apprenticeship is a great opportunity for you to expand on your exiting skillset, learn new behaviours to enhance your team and gain professional qualifications.

I knew an apprenticeship would help me to further develop and fine-tune my skills.
