EMPLOYERS across the North West are being invited to help design an new degree apprenticeship for their future managers.

It has gone out from Manchester Metropolitan University which is launching a new Chartered Manager Degree Apprenticeship at its business school on January 19.

The Chartered Manager degree-level program, starting September 2016, is the latest trailblazer degree apprenticeship announced by the Government, which will fund two-thirds of course fees.

MMU is one of the first providers selected to deliver the new degree apprenticeship, with 100 places available to school-leavers, and existing employee managers without any existing degree-level qualification.  

Apprentices will study a core curriculum, focused on key management and business skills, but there will be significant opportunities for employers to design their own bespoke program around the needs of their organisation.

Professor Julia Clarke, dean of the Faculty of Business and Law, said: "The University is leading the way in working with companies to develop programs that work for them, supporting their commitment to develop their employees as future business leaders."
