Creating Future Leaders.

Boots UK is supporting the careers of the next generation with apprenticeships.

We are delighted to add another progressive route into higher education for apprentices on our Future Leaders programme that supports these young people with their goals and aspirations, and with the next steps in their careers.

CREATING FUTURE LEADERS

Boots UK was one of the first businesses to work with CMI to offer a BA (Hons) degree programme for Future Leader Apprentices based at its Support Office in Nottingham.

From September 2016 the business offers sponsored degree apprenticeship programme, to help encourage more young people to combine work and ongoing study. The CMDA programme will help Boots to develop employees into CMI accredited managers who will lead the company now and in the future.

CONTINUING EDUCATION

After looking into the Chartered Manager Degree Apprenticeship programme and discovering its numerous benefits, Boots were convinced it was right for them.

To implement the CMDA, Boots started a partnership with Nottingham Trent University as their local education provider. From September 2016, both current and graduate apprentices on the Boots UK Future Leaders Apprenticeship programme, which offers a Level 4 Diploma qualification, will be given the opportunity to apply for the new degree programme to continue their education and undertake a BA (Hons) degree in Management and Leadership, supported by the Chartered Management Institute.

CAREER DEVELOPMENT OPPORTUNITIES

Supporting early careers by offering a supportive work environment and access to further study and qualifications is one way that Boots UK can help improve the health and happiness of the next generation.

Through this new programme, and in addition to its current apprenticeship and work experience schemes, it is helping more young people into the workplace, and offering exciting career development opportunities. Andrew Chandler, Director of HR for Stores at Boots UK, comments:  “Since 2011 we’ve recruited around 100 young people into the business as part of our Future Leaders Higher Apprenticeship programme. Through the CMDA programme we are excited to be able to offer our graduating apprentices the opportunity to further their learning from the Level 4 Diploma qualification through to a degree, and also receive Chartered Manager accreditation.”

SUPPORTING EARLY CAREERS

Jenny Brown, Head of Learning and Development at Boots UK, further emphasises the importance of apprenticeships to Boots UK:

“Our apprentices are really important at Boots UK. These exciting and inspiring young people are our next generation of marketers, accountants, dispensers, store managers and executives; so supporting their early careers and offering the option to pursue further education should they wish to, is fundamental. We are delighted to add another progressive route into higher education for apprentices on our Future Leaders programme that supports these young people with their goals and aspirations, and with the next steps in their careers.”
