Nottingham Trent launches management degree apprenticeship

An event at Nottingham Trent University tomorrow will give guests the chance to find out more about its chartered manager degree apprenticeship, which launched in April.

Inspired by the business school’s sponsored degree programme with blue chip companies such as Boots, Experian and Rolls-Royce, the new degree apprenticeship has been developed by the Chartered Management Institute (CMI), Chartered Association of Business Schools (CABS), employers and higher education providers.

Funding for up to two-thirds of the cost of the degree apprenticeship is available through the Skills Funding Agency for eligible apprentices.


Developing skills

Dean of Nottingham Business School, Professor Baback Yazdani, said: “This new degree apprenticeship is an opportunity for businesses to develop staff in line with the talent and skills needed in their organisation.

“However, for many organisations, apprenticeship programmes are still a mystery and this event hopes to shed some light on how they work and the benefits they bring to a business.”

The course will have several aims:

  • develop a talent pool of new managers with the ability to deliver value for employers
  • offer applied management and leadership skills
  • provide professional recognition and Chartered Manager status
  • develop professionally competent Chartered Managers
  • deliver real progression opportunities through work-based learning
  • award successful apprentices with a BA (Hons) in Management and Leadership from Nottingham Trent University.
