The Chartered Manager Degree is a new 'Trailblazer' apprenticeship scheme created by the Chartered Management Institute (CMI), the Chartered Association of Business Schools (CABS) and higher education providers. Funded by the Government and your employer, this apprenticeship combines work-based learning and business education, which upon successful completion, leads to a degree and professional recognition through the award of Chartered Manager status. This apprenticeship has been designed to provide access to development opportunities for a wide a range of individuals. This includes members of existing work forces and individuals at the start of their career who wish to become professional managers and achieve Chartered Manager status. It is applicable to professional managers from all sectors – the private, public or third sector – and all sizes of organisation.
The apprenticeship is first and foremost a job with substantial training and the opportunity to develop a range of transferable skills. This is designed to enable your workforce to grow organically whilst combining university study and workplace learning to enable apprentices to gain a full bachelor’s degree.
The programme offers professional recognition by the CMI through the award of Chartered Manager status, and is designed to ensure that apprentices are equipped with the skills employers need to boost their employment prospects as well as impact the organisation positively.
How You Study
The Chartered Management Degree Apprenticeship is centred on work-based learning, with modules delivered through a flexible blended-learning approach, primarily online but with opportunities for face-to-face workshops. The apprenticeship is underpinned by the BA (Hons) Professional Practice in Leadership & Management.
The programme aims to develop apprentices' professional skills and knowledge within a work-based context, while equipping them with an awareness of the principles of responsible management and leadership. Apprentices have the opportunity to develop the knowledge and skills to enhance their effectiveness as managers and leaders. Work-based-learning aims to encourage the application of theory to work practice. It can involve, for example, thinking critically about changes in the workplace, and being supported in undertaking and reporting on a work-based project that may meet a specific challenge within their organisation.
The CMDA has a duration of 3.5-4 years.
Students taking the CMDA will need to comply with the national requirements for degree apprenticeship standards including the end point assessment (EPA) to achieve their degree apprenticeship. The EPA consists of a portfolio of evidence mapped to the CMDA standard, a work-based project, presentation on the project, and an interview, all independently assessed. Modules on the underpinning BA (Hons) Professional Practice in Leadership and Management are mapped to the CMDA standard.
The Chartered Management Degree Apprenticeship is designed for as wide a range of individuals as possible, and to be suitable for those who are, or wish to become, professional managers. This includes individuals who are at the start of their career that wish to become professional managers and achieve Chartered Manager status, as well as those aspiring or existing managers who may already have developed practical experience but who wish to develop their theoretical understanding of management skills further and build further related skills.
