Formal apprenticeships offer a fantastic way for organisations to develop in-house talent whilst futureproofing for skills shortages and adding valuable skills and knowledge to your workforce. Many apprenticeships are also eligible for funding through the apprenticeship levy.
At Solace, we recognise the importance of apprenticeships in the workplace and have developed a range of innovative programmes across all levels in conjunction with INLOGOV and industry partners, to ensure that you attract the best emerging talent for your organisation.

Executive Apprenticeship in Public Management and Leadership
Solace and INLOGOV have joined forces to pioneer the very first Level 7 Executive Apprenticeship in Public Management and Leadership. This apprenticeship has been specifically designed for individuals working in the public sector with senior leadership potential with the aim of upskilling your workforce. The Level 7 Executive Apprenticeship can be funded through the apprenticeship levy.
Emerging Leaders Apprenticeship
Our Emerging Leaders Apprenticeship Programme is aimed at developing talented individuals with long-term career aspirations within local community leadership into first-rate middle managers. This programme can be entirely funded through the apprenticeship levy.
MSc in Public Management and Leadership
Solace and INLOGOV have joined forces to develop a new executive MSc in Public Management and Leadership. This innovative programme provides participants with an in-depth understanding of the key concepts and issues underpinning the practice of public service and the opportunity to implement their learning and newly obtained skills, within the context of their own professional environment. The four core modules of this unique MSc address critical challenges facing public service: governance, performance, leadership and evidence.
Our Apprenticeship Advocates
“The Apprenticeship route for me was a must as I have a very demanding role at the Council. It’s a fantastic opportunity at this level of study and is delivered in a way that complements and enhances your role at work. Having managed an Apprentice before, I always advocated the idea but now being one myself, I would definitely recommend it to others.”
Sumera Shabir, Solicitor, Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council and Apprentice, Regional Apprenticeship Programme
“Working in partnership with Solace to deliver leadership development as an apprenticeship programme has been very positive. Richmond and Wandsworth Councils have a strong commitment to staff development. Solace has added real value through their unique understanding of the public sector.”
Ian Stedman, Head of HR, London Borough of Richmond and Wandsworth
