Use government funding to transform your management team - What is a degree level apprenticeship?

Degree Level Apprenticeships are a government-backed initiative which provides businesses who want to stimulate, challenge and inspire their new or existing workforce with a flexible alternative to traditional classroom-based learning, with the support of government funding or levy relief.

On our course, your management team will:

• be introduced to industry standards of best practice
• be asked to reflect and report on their own current ways of working and how this can be improved
• learn new skills

All whilst doing their regular day job.

At the end of the programme your team members will be awarded a degree with chartered manager status for their efforts.

What is an apprentice and is my workforce eligible?

An apprentice is simply the name of an employee on a type of work-based learning programme and there are now more than ever - options for practically anyone wanting to learn and get qualified in something they are passionate about.

• at any age
• at any level of seniority

• with a variety of different routes and prior qualifications

Funding or levy relief can be provided to any business and we can provide the support and guidance to find the right option for your business.

What will your management team have the opportunity to study?

• Operational Strategy
• Business Development
• Marketing
• Technology and Innovation
• Personal Development

How is the course delivered?

This is a three to four-year programme.

The majority of the course is completed on the job with the support of the university. Learners will also attend face-to-face workshops on campus, where they will be taught by our inspiring academic team, be able to make use of our new £3m facilities as well as connect with like-minded professionals on the course.
