Entry Requirements

  • GCSE Grade 4/C in Maths and English (Language or Literature) or Level 2 Functional Skills in Maths and English
  • If a learner has not achieved English or Maths at Level 2 (4/C or above at GCSE or Functional Skills Level 2), they will have to attend Functional Skills sessions which will be held on an additional day to their regular college attendance. Candidates will also take an English and Maths initial assessment during enrolment, irrespective of previous grades/ qualifications.
  • Candidates must also be employed in an appropriate job role and have a Level 3 (or higher) qualification, such as A-Levels. Candidates who do not hold a Level 3 qualification but have a minimum of 2 years’ experience in management will also be considered.
  • Candidates must attend an interview with the Delivery Team as part of the application process. Interviews typically take place in August.

Candidates will be embarking upon a challenging course and will also need to balance personal situations (home and paid work) with the amount of degree work required during the course. This could be an extra 12 or more hours per week.

All candidates must have the support of their employer as the apprenticeship will involve regular progress reviews, conducting a work-based project and building a portfolio of work-based evidence. Also, apprentices will be required to complete job-related assignments that may require them to have greater access to management activities.
