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.  


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

Duration and commitment 

The duration of the apprenticeship will be three years, excluding the end-point assessment. The programme is delivered via face-to-face teaching which takes place one day per week in central London. This face-to-face teaching is supported by online learning using our Virtual Learning Environment (VLE). Apprentices are also 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.
