Course Overview

This work-based programme is designed to provide the essential knowledge, understanding, skills and experience required to operate effectively and successfully in a business environment in the private and public sectors. Core areas of the programme focus on contemporary business concepts, management and leadership functions, managing people, project and risk management, operations, and external context, including legal and ethical issues.

This apprenticeship is suitable for managers and aspiring managers who are employed. It will allow apprentices to combine workplace learning opportunities with university studies, bringing together theories and practice that are relevant to the organisation in which they work. 

Why study with us?

  • Apprenticeships are designed by industry professionals and are aimed at employees. They can be suitable as a way to upskill existing members of staff or as a pathway for new recruits.
  • Small groups, and specially-designed learning sessions will ensure that apprentices get the most out of their time in workshops and lectures.
  • Typically, 20% of the apprenticeship will be "off the job" – this includes work-based projects and job-related activities.
  • There is no direct fee paid by the apprentice as the programme is supported through the apprenticeship levy.
  • Successful apprentices will gain a bachelor's degree, whilst also having the opportunity to gain a recognised professional qualification from the Chartered Management Institute or similar professional body (professional membership fees applies).

Learning and Teaching >


Throughout the programme, apprentices are assessed via various methods including:

  • Reports
  • Presentations
  • Professional discussions
  • Assignments
  • ​ Work-based projects

Apprentices will also create a portfolio of evidence throughout the programme in order to allow them to demonstrate how they have achieved the knowledge, skills and behaviours set out in the Apprenticeship standard. Evidence may include reports, reflective logs and formative assessments.​​

Upon completion of the degree, each apprentice will use their portfolio to progress to the final part of the Apprenticeship – the 'end point assessment'. This comprises an interview and presentation assessed by a panel, which includes representatives from the employer, the University and an independent assessor (Appointed by the Chartered Management Institute).​

Entry Requirements >

​Entry requirements are agreed with the employer. Apprentices will be required to achieve Level 2 English and Maths.
