Level 7 Apprenticeships
Small and large organisations alike face the ongoing challenge of retaining staff, improving skills and future proofing the workforce. To help keep businesses one step ahead of their challenges, senior leader apprenticeships can be used to help develop the skills and knowledge of their workforce.
By using apprenticeship levy funding, employees resident in England can access a national standard of professional leadership development qualifications. The government recently broadened the scope of the levy by launching level 7 apprenticeships. Now, current and aspiring leaders at eligible companies can study an MSc or MBA funded by the levy as a degree apprenticeship.
The level 7 standard has been developed by the Chartered Management Institute (CMI), university partners and leading employers. This ensures a rigorous standard that will help organisations develop managers and leaders and build sustainable, profitable businesses.
Designed for individuals moving into a senior role, these degree level apprenticeships focus on shaping prolific leaders in the private, public, and third sectors. From general managers to chief executive officers, the qualifications can allow employees to realise their full career potential.
Degree Level Apprenticeships
Our MSc Management Practice is up to 100% funded through the apprenticeship levy. This senior leader apprenticeship is all about imparting your employees with the leadership and management skills needed to support your business performance and long-term future. This level 7 apprenticeship programme is part-time and lasts for 2 years, combining on-work experience with studying.
The apprenticeship levy can also be used to partly fund the Alliance Manchester Business School Global Part-time MBA. Aimed at executives, this programme includes 30 days of teaching, studying core courses surrounding business and management. This is a flexible option, as it allows the MBA to be fitted around any career or personal obligations.
