Overview

Overview

Degree Apprenticeship

Our aim is to give you the technical knowledge, behavioural skills and experience required to work effectively as a leader within your organisation.

On-the-job experience

You will spend the majority of time in the workplace gaining hands-on knowledge of your organisation and contribute to the effective running of the business.

While working you have the opportunity to apply academic learning in the workplace. By the end of your university studies, you will be ahead of the game and prepared for promotion to managerial roles.

Course structure

Study days comprise a range of learning activities, such as lectures, tutorials, student-led workshops and presentations. You will acquire the technical knowledge to meet academic requirements but also spend time discussing how this knowledge is relevant to the workplace.

You will be expected to work outside of university contact hours to complete any additional reading, homework and tutorial preparation, and to work on final assessment reports for each course.

Attendance

Attend 25-30 days a year, for three years to complete the degree. Then it will take up to a year to complete the End Point Assessment to complete the apprenticeship.

Professional standards

This degree has been designed to standards developed by the Chartered Management Institute (CMI). The CMI is the only organisation able to award Chartered Management status in the UK. This prepares you to progress and become a future leader in business.

On completion, students receive a BA Hons Management qualification awarded by the University of Greenwich (after year three) and full chartered membership to the CMI (at the end of year four).

You will need to attend a small number of sessions at university (and this can be flexible around work commitments) during which you can see a personal tutor to undertake presentation and interview practice, or receive feedback on the written portfolio evidence pieces.

Entry requirements

Employers can recruit their apprentices as they see fit. We require a minimum of Level 2 English and Mathematics (equivalent to GCSE grade 4 or grade C for those who studied prior to 2017), plus 112 UCAS points from Level 3 qualifications such as A-levels or BTEC Nationals.
