Chartered Manager (online)

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.

A professional manager 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. 


This apprenticeship follows the Level 6 Chartered Manager Apprenticeship Standard. On successful completion of the apprenticeship, learners will gain a BSc in Management which is accredited by the Chartered Management Institute (CMI).   

Duration and commitment 

The duration of the apprenticeship will be four years and three months, including the end-point assessment. There would be a face-to-face induction (held in Canterbury) and then most of the programme is delivered online. There are also weeklong summer schools across the four years held at our Canterbury campus. The programme is delivered online, with face-to-face teaching taking place once each year. This face-to-face teaching is delivered over four days at our Canterbury campus. Learners are expected to take one study day per week to complete their online learning and are required to attend meetings with a dedicated Apprenticeship Advisor every 8-12 weeks.   

Line managers are expected to support apprentices in their day-to-day job roles and attend the progress reviews with the Apprenticeship Advisor every 8-12 weeks to sign off the apprentice's skills and behaviours in preparation for the end-point assessment.    

Entry requirements 

Apprentices enrolling on this programme are expected to have achieved ABB at A level, or 34 points (16 at Higher Level) in the International Baccalaureate (or equivalent).  
Applicants who do not meet these entry criteria still be considered based on previous experience on a case-by-case basis.
