Network Rail Apprentice Programme

ILM Level 2 Programme Update

In early October Benchmark Training Ltd delivered two days of leadership development activities on behalf of Babcock International Group for Cohort Five of the Network Rail Apprenticeship scheme. A total of 157 apprentices participated in a series of highly practical leadership development activities over two days, during their induction week at Network Rail’s Westwood Training Centre.
The aim of the two days was to give the apprentices a flavour of what to expect during the ILM Level 2 Certificate in Team Leading element of their apprenticeship. Each activity focussed on fun and engagement and involved the apprentices applying many of the skills and behaviours underpinning effective leadership including assessing, planning, briefing, coaching, motivating and reviewing. The programme was a great way to introduce the new apprentices to the very positive impact that great leadership has on the business and further encouraged their interest and understanding in this key capability that typically underpins successful individual and team safety and performance.
