The Line Manager’s Role in Supporting Apprentices


‘If everyone is moving forward together, then success takes care of itself’ (Henry Ford)

The role of line manager is key to developing apprentices and supporting performance improvement on the job.  A small investment of time on the line manager’s part in reality will significantly help apprentices and team members to become more accountable, grow in confidence and progress within their role.

Line managers will benefit from developing skills and techniques that equally will improve their overall effectiveness as a manager too.   Setting and reviewing qualitative, measurable objectives, delivering constructive feedback and coaching on the job are just some of the skills required to support apprenticeship and staff development in a way that makes a tangible difference to both the individual and to the business.
