About the scheme

The scheme places high calibre, aspiring individuals to attend and observe the board or senior leadership team meetings of another host organisation for a one-year secondment. This provides board-level development opportunities, observing the workings and dynamics of a board first-hand.

Each participating organisation acts as a host board for a board apprentice and places a high calibre individual from their own organisation to attend board meetings as an observer with another participating organisation.  Participants have the opportunity to attend an exclusive development programme, delivered by Cranfield School of Management, to broaden their awareness and prepare them for the boardroom.

Matching the right participant for your organisation

Pure Executive will facilitate the selection and introduction of participants to host organisations. Organisations will have a choice of applicants and are supported by Pure Executive throughout the selection and secondment period in the same way as if it was a permanent appointment.
