One of the crucial skills employers look for is teamwork – the ability to work effectively with others towards a common goal – as it can make a significant difference in the success of a business.  

How Do We Nurture Teamwork?

Chelmsford College has placed great importance on teaching all learners the value of teamwork through the Skills Builder Universal Framework. This approach focuses on developing essential skills like leadership, communication and teamwork by exposing students to classroom-based learning and practical experience, ensuring they can apply what they have learned in the real world. Our approach has been positive, and we are confident that our learners will be successful in the workplace because of the qualities they have developed. 

What Do Businesses Gain?

The Team Leader Apprenticeship standard makes it inexpensive for employers to hire apprentices or upskill their workforce. It offers a customised training experience, and businesses benefit from having a more productive workforce while learners gain valuable experience.

Teamwork is a crucial skill every student should develop. The apprenticeship allows them to learn and apply the skills they need to succeed in the workplace. With the Skills Builder Universal Framework, we provide a comprehensive approach to developing and preparing our students for success.
