Course content

This Senior Leader Apprenticeship programme provides you with the knowledge, skills and capabilities required to be an effective leader.

The programme aims to

  • develop the knowledge, skills, and behaviours to prepare learners for senior leadership and strategic management roles.
  • provides learners with a holistic view of business using both theoretical knowledge and practical application.

The central underpinning themes of the programme are transformation; both individual and organisational, and sustainable business practices. In addition, learners’ digital skills will be developed and enhanced to increase impact within these themes and the programme. As such, the curriculum aligns to emerging social and business approaches to maximise the impact learners can make individually, organisationally, and societally.

An important element of the programme is the opportunity it provides for participants to apply their learning to organisational situations. The fact that learning is applied, rather than being purely theoretical, is of crucial importance to learners, since their roles empower them to make a contribution to, and impact on, their organisation. This approach is supported by the sharing of understanding which draws on the group experience. The importance of peer learning, essential for professional and experienced management practitioners, is also developed through the use of action learning sets as a supportive and collaborative approach enabling issues and challenges from the workplace to be discussed and peer reviewed by colleagues on the course. This approach also provides a forum for students to bring ideas, thoughts, issues and actionable remedies to the fore

What is the apprenticeship levy?

The government has introduced a levy on larger employers to fund apprenticeships. If your company’s wage bill is over £3 million your company will pay the apprenticeship levy of 0.5%.

If your company is paying the apprenticeship levy (see details below), you can use these funds to cover Degree Apprenticeships.

Both levy and non-levy paying employers can benefit from additional payments to support their apprentices in the workplace.
