Chartered Management Degree and Senior Leader Apprenticeships with Bishop Grosseteste University


Are you a senior manager who wants to develop your knowledge and skills, or are you looking to progress into a senior management role?

Are you a leader or manager and would like to develop your knowledge, skills and behaviours within the role?

If you have answered YES to one or both of the above, we are working in partnership with BISHOP GROSSETESTE UNIVERSITY to deliver their CHARTERED MANAGER DEGREE APPRENTICESHIP (CMDA) and SENIOR LEADER APPRENTICESHIP (SLA) to help you meet your aspirations.

A blended approach is used for delivering teaching and learning, with some sessions delivered on campus and others remotely. The learning on the apprenticeship will be broken down into individual modules.

The Grosseteste University has received many commendations for their unique courses and teaching approaches. Indeed:

‘As a university, BGU has a great ‘feel’. The lecturers are all knowledgeable in their subject areas and offer a great balance between supporting/coaching you, some of us have been out of education for +20years. Pushing [and] challenging our thinking as senior leaders and creating a space for us to connect with each other as [apprentices] and people with a fantastic variety of experience, knowledge, and careers. Its these aspects that really make it work.

The Apprenticeship Team really help, encourage, and support you - but you also need to be prepared to ‘step up’ and work with the team.

It has widened my knowledge and thinking - some of the best moments for me have been after a lecture when my lecturer and fellow [apprentices] have helped me to talk through different/new models and then I can reflect [on] - So what does that mean for my practice as a leader and as the owner of an SME business? This is the bit that works for me - a qualification is nice - but a qualification that links directly to you and your business or work is fantastic.

This programme has already contributed to my work, and I am now looking at starting a big project to diversify our business - using the knowledge I have gained. I am now coming to the end of my first year and I am really glad that I signed up for it and would encourage anyone that is thinking about it to go for it!’
