Degrees in work – Degree apprenticeships

Degree apprenticeships offer a new route into higher education. Undertaking a degree in the workplace offers a different perspective from traditional higher-level education study by allowing a learner to earn a full-time wage whilst simultaneously studying for a higher level qualification.

The Chartered Manager Degree Apprenticeship is a Trailblazer Apprenticeship that has been developed by a group of employers, in partnership with a number of Higher Education Institutions (Providers), and the Chartered Management Institute (CMI). Employer-led standards provide specialist industry-based and academically credible training, allowing your apprentice to acquire higher level skills that can lead to professional accreditation and membership. The recognised professional CMI qualification that your apprentice will bring back to the business is built into course, providing value for money and a return on investment by bringing back up to date knowledge from college.

What are the benefits for employers?

Employers can nurture emerging talent by making the most of their Apprenticeship Levy contributions, whilst their apprentice will achieve a degree alongside valuable work experience.

Employers will be able to produce their own graduates whilst attracting and retaining good quality staff and developing emerging talent in their existing workforce.

Work-based learning is cost-effective training option that can be used to target specific skills gaps as well as meeting the needs of your business and employees.

Employers will benefit from the fresh thinking and up-to-date knowledge and skills that can be incorporated into current practice by your apprentice.
