The Senior Leadership Higher Level Apprenticeship will allow you to build on previous experience and acquire a sound theoretical background in business and management. You'll acquire more management expertise, leading to a widening of responsibilities, and learn about the sustainable issues in business, which are applicable to private, public, and third sector organisations. Successful completion of the Apprenticeship will lead to the award of an MBA, which is often used as a stepping stone to other management roles at a more senior level within their organisation.
This is a 24-month full-time apprenticeship programme where students are released by their employers one day a week. The modules are all independent and scheduled over two years.
Towards the end of the programme, you'll carry out an independent project based on your professional experience and/or the industry sector you have been working in.
