About this course

The Chartered Manager Degree Apprenticeship will allow you to:

  • Study through short block release
  • Develop your Operational Strategy, Sales & Marketing, Project Management and other leadership and management capabilities
  • Study with peers from other industries
  • Develop a range of skills, knowledge and behaviours which you can immediately apply to your role
  • Achieve a degree level whilst developing your current management career

The apprenticeship will be delivered against the nationally recognised Level 6 Chartered Manager Degree Apprenticeship Standard and on successful completion of the programme and EPA activities participants will gain the BA (Hons) and will have the option to gain professional body recognition alongside the apprenticeship.

The apprenticeship will typically take three and a half years to complete (including the End-Point Assessment) although each student will be different dependant on previous experience.

Entry requirements

You will need to be in employment where your line manager is able to support you through the apprenticeship - Individual employers will set the selection criteria for their Apprenticeships and employment role.

Most candidates will have A levels (or equivalent) or existing relevant Level 3 qualifications, and English and Maths at Level 2 (where approved English and Maths qualifications are not held these will need to be completed during the apprenticeship programme).

Other relevant or prior experience may also be considered as an alternative alongside consideration of the suitability of the role being undertaken and the opportunities to develop and apply the required knowledge, skills and behaviours.
