Chartered Manager (London)

A Chartered Manager is someone who can take responsibility for people, projects, operations and/or services to deliver long-term organisational success. They may work in the private, public or third sector.

Professional managers will be capable of managing complexity and will obtain leadership responsibility for setting and delivering organisational objectives through a wide range of functions. 

They will develop in full all aspects of their management and leadership skills, knowledge, self-awareness, and behaviours. 

Benefits of the programme 

The Level 6 Chartered Manager Degree Apprenticeship helps managers take their next step into senior leadership roles. During the apprenticeship, the learner develops knowledge, skills and behaviours needed to become transformational leaders and develop an innovative mindset. 

Much of the programme is centred around work-based learning and projects, which means as an apprentice, you will be adding value to your organisation as you work through your degree. 

As part of the triple-accredited Kent Business School, apprentices receive an outstanding teaching experience throughout the programme. 

In addition to on-the-job and off-the-job training, you will have access to online content and resources and be supported by a dedicated Apprenticeship Advisor.
