Adult 19+

This apprenticeship will prepare you for managing a facilities management service or group of services.

A Facilities Manager is responsible for the safe, secure and comfortable day-to-day working environment for properties, assets (e.g. equipment) and services that must be fully compliant with health and safety and other legislation.

Modules will include

  • Property Asset Management
  • Service Delivery
  • Compliance
  • Management Systems
  • Policy Implementation and Change Management
  • Quality and Stakeholder Management
  • People Management
  • Financial and Procurement Management

To achieve the apprenticeship standard all components must be completed, including Functional skills at the required level if the apprentice doesn’t have exemptions. All apprenticeship standards include an end point assessment which is required to complete the standard.

You'll need at least 5 GCSEs at grade 4 (C) or above including Maths (at least grade B), English and Science - or their equivalents.

If you haven't achieved Level 2 English & Maths, you'll need to study Level 2 Functional Skills as part of your apprenticeship.

Working a minimum of 30 hours per week

Complete this apprenticeship and you can choose to continue their development to a Level 5 Apprenticeship or straight into a senior position within the Facilities Management area.

Suitable roles might include:

  • Facilities Manager
  • Premises Manager
  • Energy Services Manager
  • Contract Manager

Upon successful completion of the programme learners can choose to continue their development through a Level 5 Apprenticeship.

During your apprenticeship you'll receive up to two years studying membership with the Institute of Workplace and Facilities Management (IWFM).

On completion of the programme you'll meet the qualifying criteria for Associate Membership of the Institute.

Further progress can be made post-apprenticeship through the professional membership pathway - this ultimately leads to recognition as a Certified Facilities Manager by the IWFM.
