At GLP Training, our Level 5 Facilities Management bespoke apprenticeship is designed for those who aspire to become departmental managers within the facilities management industry. This specialised programme merges the Level 5 Operational Management Apprenticeship with a choice between the ILM Level 5 Certificate in Management and the IWFM Level 4 Award in Facilities Management, offering a tailored educational pathway that enriches leadership and managerial capabilities.

This comprehensive apprenticeship equips participants with the essential knowledge, skills, and behaviours required to effectively manage and develop their teams and projects. Apprentices will learn to plan and monitor workloads meticulously, manage resources efficiently, and navigate the complexities of facilities management and risk management.

The curriculum of this bespoke package covers a broad spectrum of leadership and management areas crucial to the facilities management sector. These include:

  • Facilities Management: Apprentices gain insights into optimising the performance and sustainability of physical workplaces.

  • Risk Management: This component focuses on identifying, assessing, and mitigating risks within organisational operations to ensure safety and compliance.

  • Organisational Culture and Context: Understanding and shaping organisational culture to align with strategic objectives and enhance workplace efficiency.

  • Health and Safety Management: Emphasising the importance of establishing and maintaining safe working environments in compliance with legal and organisational policies.

Our bespoke apprenticeship is not only about imparting theoretical knowledge but also about applying these concepts in practical, real-world facilities management scenarios. It prepares apprentices to take on significant roles within their organisations, driving operational success and strategic development.
