To gain the knowledge and skills required for the Apprenticeship the Apprentice will complete the BA (Hons) in Leadership and Management degree, validated by the UEA, and in partnership with the Chartered Management Institute.

This programme will equip you with the skills and strategies to deal with contemporary challenges in management practice. The programme has been developed in consultation with local and global partners and professional bodies, and has been mapped to Chartered Management Institute (CMI) standards. This allows successful Apprentices to apply for ‘Chartered Manager’ status with the CMI, after passing the Apprenticeship End Point Assessment, alongside gaining an honours degree.

The Degree Apprenticeship requires an employer to agree to both fund and support the Apprentice throughout the duration of the programme. The Degree Apprenticeship route requires the Apprentice to complete an End Point Assessment, leading to Membership of the Chartered Management Institute.

This course is offered as part of a modular, credit-based scheme which is comprised of modules of 10 and 20 credits.

  • Financial Resourcing (covers business finance and some accounts), Leading Enterprise in Organisations, Higher Learning Skills, Organisational Behaviour, Marketing of Products and Services, and, Employment, Contact and Business Law.

Why our College?

Outstanding Progression

97% of our full time gradates and 100% of our part time graduates are in employment of further study 6 months after completing their degree (Teaching Excellence and Student Outcomes).

This places our College in the top 10% of providers and provides you with excellent routes to get you to where you want to be.

Flexible Study Options

Most of our courses require no more than two days attendance at college. This means you can continue to work alongside your studies and balance other commitments.

Smaller Class Sizes

Our smaller class sizes mean you get all the support you need during studies. This is a crucial difference to larger universities and provides you with access to your lecturers when you need them.

Entry Requirements

Most applicants will have A levels or equivalent commercial experience or existing relevant Level 3 qualifications and English and Maths at Level 2 (GCSE/O Level). Applicants without A levels or other Level 3 qualifications but with a minimum of 2 years’ experience in management may also apply. Applicants may be invited to interview or compete a personal statement.

All applicants will have to complete an online assessment for Maths and English at Level 2 when joining the course. In order to complete the apprenticeship all apprentices must complete or already hold a Maths and English Level 2 or Functional Skills qualification. The achievement of these qualifications is mandatory so applicants will have to commit to working towards gaining these qualifications– with support from the team – while also studying for their degree.

It is essential that all applicants have the support of their line manager as the apprenticeship will involve attendance at workshops as well as potential shadowing, observations etc. In addition, apprentices will be required to complete job-related assignments that may require them to have greater access to management activities. We or your employer might require a statement from a line manager supporting the application.


The Leadership & Management UEA degree focuses on academic, personal and professional growth and therefore offers a number of valuable progression routes. You could consider specialist postgraduate qualifications according to your own career aspirations. This could include Masters level study or PhD research.
As a newly qualified chartered manager, you may decide to pursue further Chartered Management qualifications.

Career Progression

Upon completion, Apprentices will have registration with the Chartered Management Institute and hold a Level 6 Chartered Manager Degree Apprenticeship. This well recognised qualification will enhance your ability to contribute effectively to your organisation and thus the possibility of progression into and through supervisory and management roles. Our past Apprentices have followed careers in marketing, personnel (HRM), accounts and finance, financial services, management and teaching.
