This degree apprenticeship, delivered by the Lifelong Learning Centre, it intends to develop and strengthen the leadership and management skills of new and existing managers to become confident in their role by expanding their skills and knowledge of fundamental business concepts such as project management, business finance and marketing.

The BSc (Hons) Business Management and Leadership, studied as part of the apprenticeship, is designed to complement your role, enabling you to apply your learning and make an impact and you could also achieve Chartered Manager (CMgr) status, the gold standard for the profession.
