clip_image002Kingdom has invested in a national leadership diploma for all of their Blue Ribbon team leaders which will enhance their elite workforce’s skills in areas such as organisation, leadership and personal development. Blue Ribbon team leaders are Kingdom’s elite team leaders and managers across the country. The qualification is a Level 3 Leadership Diploma and is a completely bespoke qualification, designed and managed for Kingdom by The Manchester College.

The OCR (Oxford, Cambridge & RSA Examination) accredited Level 3 Management qualification has been deemed the most appropriate with which to support the work done by Kingdom’s team of up to 100 nationwide Blue Ribbon team leaders. It was agreed that the Level 3 management qualification would supplement Kingdom’s existing in-house 15 module e-learning Blue Ribbon programme.

The qualification will take learners approximately 12 months to complete and will consist of monthly, in-house visits from assessors. Each element of the Level 3 Management Framework will be delivered via a combination of one or more of the following methods:

  • Technical Certificate (i.e knowledge element)

One to one/group tuition
Completion of qualification workbook
E-learning/distance learning

  • Workplace Assessment (‘Competency’ element)

One to one workplace assessment/observations
Compilation of evidence based portfolio

  • Transferable/Functional Skills (English, Mathematics)
