This apprenticeship runs over a minimum of two years. You will be completing on-the-job learning and uploading evidence of this to an e-portfolio, at the same time as studying for a BA (Hons) degree in Business Leadership and Management.
This academic study will be through 'blended learning' - a combination of face-to-face and online teaching. Face-to-face sessions are delivered in blocks and online learning can include group webinars, independent activities or reading for half a day per week between the block study sessions.
You will usually take these modules:
- Innovative Operations Management
- Strategic Leadership
- Emerging Digital Trends and Issues
- Business Impact Project
- Professional Review.
Each module has a specific learning journey on the CMI Management Direct portal to complement existing materials.
You will be assessed on projects you complete for your employer, which must have real impact - for you and for your workplace. Your employer will help us design these assessments.
The final End Point Assessment is run by the Chartered Management Institute (CMI) and includes a review of your e-portfolio and an interview. If successful, you will gain Chartered Manager Status (CMgr) in addition to the BA (Hons) degree.
Your employer will be able to track your progress through an online portal.
