Universities, Business Schools, FE Colleges and Private Training Providers are key to the successful delivery of CMI’s apprenticeships. Working with employers they can develop a programme that meets the specific needs of the organisation.

CMI's management and leadership apprenticeships will also provide a unique opportunity to develop new business streams by building stronger relationships with local businesses and accelerating learners’ career development.

CMI's Learning Providing Conference in July 2016 affirmed that the skills landscape is going through significant change – which offers substantial opportunities to deliver employer-led training that can boost skills and performance.

This white paper captures the insights, ideas and perspectives on directions in further education and training shared by speakers at the conference.

In today’s connected world, schools need to develop closer relationships with professional bodies, business intermediaries and businesses to ensure their offering remains relevant. They need to develop alliances and partnerships, locally and internationally. They need to become hubs of activity, not just learning. It is also time for businesses and management to shed its social science badge and take its place among the key vocational subjects. This means pushing in partnership with organisations such as CMI for the wider professionalisation of management.
