Training Provided

Chartered Manager Degree level 6 standard Apprenticeship.

A Degree Apprenticeship combines work-based and off-the-job learning and the Chartered Manager Degree Apprenticeship includes special modules which have been designed to allow you to achieve academic credit through work-based consultancy and research projects.

These modules are designed to be flexible and to enable you to incorporate your learning in the workplace with your academic learning in the classroom. In Introduction to Research, you will develop essential research skills which you will apply in the workplace on a project agreed with your academic mentor and your company mentor.

The Self-managed Learning modules allows even greater autonomy. In conjunction with your company mentor and academic mentor, you will design a work-based project which will give you the opportunity to demonstrate the use of your initiative and a level of autonomy by applying your skills and knowledge to a specialist area related to your work.

Throughout all your modules, you will also be collecting evidence of your knowledge, skills and behaviour in your e-portfolio.
