Nurturing Leadership

Truly instinctive leaders are few and far between. For most of us, leadership has to  be learned. And for that to happen, it must be nurtured and encouraged. So our Level 3 and Level 5 Apprenticeships help those with leadership ambitions to identify and develop the skills that are already there inside them. Not simply by teaching the latest theories of business management (though that’s important) but by building self-belief and confidence in their own judgement. Added to practical coaching in essential skills like communication and problem solving, the result is a qualification delivered to the highest national standards that adds real measurable value to businesses and teams alike.

The Value of Apprenticeships

Staff development and training is central to growth and success for any business, whatever its size. Apprenticeships, growing in popularity in all areas of professional life over the last few years, are an ideal way for businesses to develop the talent in their organisation, build confidence and increase productivity. The Apprenticeship Levy, introduced in 2017, offers subsidised apprenticeship training with Government contributions of up to 95% towards the cost, allowing businesses to select courses and qualifications that will bring the right mix of skills into their organisation and establish the next generation of leadership.

Whether you’re studying or organising training for others, you’re at the centre of everything. The people we hire. The courses we teach. The partners we work with. Its about you.

Why? Because if you succeed, we succeed. Likewise, if you don’t get the results you want, well… we’ve failed.

That even extends to where and when teaching and learning takes place. Because unlike colleges, we aren’t bound by bricks and mortar.

People in the classroom attending the ILM qualification provided by Bright Direction Training

“My confidence has grown massively”

I am currently undertaking the Level 3 Diploma in Management, from starting this course over a year ago my confidence has grown massively and my style of leading has seen a huge improvement. I am constantly receiving positive feedback from my peers and gaining recognition from managers within my department. I am promoted to Assistant Manager due to the knowledge and skills I have learnt during the course of my Diploma. I look forward to applying this knowledge to my new role and seeing my career develop further.

“Very well organised and presented”

The course I attended was very well organised and presented, the workshops are very interactive, and the tutors listen to feedback and tailor the sessions to suit. I believe the Bright Direction Training courses are the best in terms of relevancy and content, from the tutors and fellow delegates to the takeaway materials. I have always found that I come away feeling inspired and with valuable new tools, techniques and skills that I am now able to apply in my job which will be a great contributor to the end result of the projects I work on.

“I’ll definitely recommend the ILM Level 3 to others”

I always found that I come away feeling inspired and with valuable new tools and techniques that I can implement into my job, it also encouraged me to think outside the box and reflect on my own behaviour/skills. I also loved how interactive and personal the course was and I thought Aiden and Ann covered all the areas brilliantly. I’ll definitely recommend the ILM Level 3 to others in a similar situation to me.

“The team all treated me with dignity and respect, supporting me throughout the course”

In 2016 I was involved in a serious car accident where I broke my leg, fractured my arm and cracked my ribs. As a result of my accident, I suffered with depression and anxiety.

I met a lady called Lisa who helped turn my life around. She encouraged me to get back on my feet and to start a free SIA Course to achieve my dream as a Door Supervisor. During my course, the team at Bright Direction Training treated me with dignity and respect. They supported me and taught me everything I needed to know.  Thanks to this amazing team, I completed the course and received my SIA License. I have since secured work as a Door Supervisor and I am also attending college studying Level 1 Maths and English to further my education.
