This programme has been designed in collaboration with a range of employers and the Chartered Management Institute (CMI) to ensure it meets the needs of a wide range of businesses. It is the ideal degree apprenticeship if you want to work in a management or leadership role in your organisation, or if you want to improve your effectiveness in an existing role.
You will gain a BA (Hons) Leadership & Management Practice, CMI Level 5 Diploma in Management & Leadership and upon successful completion, Chartered Manager Professional Status with the Chartered Management Institute.
Delivered over three years for apprentices following the full undergraduate degree. Experienced managers may be able to start at stage 2 or 3 in recognition of their prior equivalent professional and/or academic learning. Typically, apprentices attend one day per week.
The programme is delivered using a blended learning approach by experienced tutors using lectures, seminars, coaching, group work, computer-based learning and independent study. Throughout the programme there is a strong element of work-based learning and project work. We'll work closely with you to ensure that modules are relevant to your business and that there are flexible study arrangements in place to fit with work commitments.
Apprentices complete a range of assessments designed to test the necessary attributes for successful management and leadership in the workplace. Tri-partite meetings between the learner, academic tutor and employer are held to review progress against the individuals learning plan. Please check our vacancies page for any opportunities with our employers.
The programme is work based and, as such, is subject to the apprentice being employed by an organisation throughout the duration of the programme. The employer must confirm apprentices comply with the apprentice eligibility criteria including funding requirements. Apprentices may be eligible for direct entry onto stage 2 or 3 of the programme; this is subject to accredited prior learning and/or prior experiential learning. Employers and/or potential apprentices should contact the University direct for further information.
