The Chartered Manager Degree Apprenticeship is for professional managers who take lead responsibility for people, projects, operations and/or services to deliver long term organisational success. It is applicable to professional managers from all sectors – the private, public or third sector – and all sizes of organisation. It will typically take 4 years to complete, although the exact duration will be dependent on the previous experience of the individual.

This apprenticeship has been designed to provide access to development opportunities for as wide a range of individuals as possible. This includes individuals who are at the start of their career and who wish to become professional managers and achieve Chartered Manager status, as well as those who may already have developed practical experience but who wish to develop their theoretical understanding of management skills further.

What  distinguishes  this apprenticeship  is  the blend of employer-defined  skills, knowledge and  behaviour outcomes that are integrated and assessed as part of a management degree, and professional recognition by the Chartered Management Institute (CMI) through the award of Chartered Manager status.


Successful students studying for the Chartered Manager Degree Apprenticeship at the University of Lincoln will achieve:

  • BA (Hons) Professional Practice in Leadership and Management
  • CMI Level 5 Diploma in Leadership and Management
  • Chartered Manager status (CMgr MCMI)
  • Chartered Manager Degree Apprenticeship
