Information for Apprentices

The Chartered Manager Degree Apprenticeship is a brand new, industry driven opportunity for any business or organisation of any size to develop their own graduate level workforce. It has been designed by a group of leading businesses, in conjunction with the Chartered Association of Business Schools and professional bodies, in order to help employers to address skills gaps and develop their own workforce of the future. 

This provides you with a unique opportunity to work in some of the region’s leading organisations, whilst studying for a BA (Hons) Business Management and Leadership, as well as gaining the highly regarded Level 6 Diploma in Leadership and Management from the ILM and gain Chartered Manager status.

You will be employed by an organisation for a minimum 30 hours per week and receive a salary plus invaluable work experience plus all of the additional benefits that are provided to full-time employees. Your employer will agree to release you for some time each week in order for you to attend lectures as a student. This would usually take place on our brand new multi-million pound campus at Queen’s Park and you would receive all of the support and benefits that other students enjoy.

You will need to have good “A” Levels in order to apply (or relevant work experience) and meet the employer’s requirements, as well as having a genuine interest in a business or management career.

The University is working with a range of leading employers to deliver these apprenticeships and vacancies will be advertised here as they become available. Alternatively, you may be able to complete an apprenticeship with your existing employer. Please contact Lisa Rowe (lisa.rowe@chester.ac.uk) for more details of how this might work for you.
