Following a successful pilot scheme between RAF Marham Training Development Flight (TDF) and Ultimate Performance Business Solutions (UPBS) to provide Leadership and Management Training for Corporals and below it was agreed that UPBS would deliver Advanced Management Apprenticeships at Level 3.
The Apprenticeship took a year to complete and was an evidence based assessment of Leadership and Management at the work place which incorporated secondary duties, if required. The apprenticeship included an NVQ and a two day JNCO & Airmen’s Leadership Course provided by UPBS.
Sqn Ldr Harry Pearce presented a snapshot of the first successful candidates with their framework certificates in a short ceremony held in TDF. Two UPBS assessors, including the Lead assessor, also attended.
The scheme was the brainchild of Flt Lt Anne-Marie Noble, OC TDF, who along with UPBS designed the Apprenticeship in order to aid the junior ranks in their personal development. Unfortunately she was unable to attend the ceremony.
Due to the success of the scheme RAF Marham has now processed more than 200 personnel with the latest candidates being inducted early July 2013.
Husband and Wife SAC(T)s Kay and Shaun Edwards, both completed the scheme.
