Chartered Manager Degree Apprenticeship

Now available for professional managers to study in Basingstoke


Course Overview

We’re working in partnership with Solent University to offer the Chartered Manager Degree Apprenticeship (CMDA) in Basingstoke. If you live in or around Basingstoke, you can now build your professional management career with Basingstoke College of Technology (BCoT), which means you don’t have to travel far and it’s easier to fit around your work commitments

The CMDA is just one of a number of higher education courses BCoT offers in partnership with Southampton Solent University. It brings us another step closer to becoming the town’s first fully recognised University Centre and makes us the only further education provider in Basingstoke to offer degree programmes.

What is a CMDA?

It’s a flexible management apprenticeship programme that provides a degree level qualification, a Level 5 Diploma and the opportunity to earn Chartered Manager status,
accredited by the Chartered Management Institute (CMI).

The CMDA also provides research and learning for the ever-changing world of business and allows you to apply theoretical models to real-life case studies from your own organisation.

Entry Requirements

The CMDA provides a degree-level qualification and is underpinned by Southampton Solent University’s BA (Hons) Business Management degree. It also provides the CMI Level 5 Diploma in Management and Leadership and the opportunity to earn Chartered Manager status.

Applicants are expected to be able to demonstrate aptitude, enthusiasm and prior learning in the workplace. However, applications will be considered on an individual basis and may be admitted subject to a satisfactory interview and/or portfolio.

Most candidates will have A Levels or other relevant Level 3 qualifications. It’s also a requirement that upon completion of the apprentice degree that maths and English equivalent has to be demonstrated at GCSE grade 4 or above (previously grade C). Other relevant prior experience can include a HND or foundation degree.

Course Length

BCoT is offering the fast-track two-year management degree apprenticeship. Suitable candidates will be able to finish the academic elements of their
apprenticeship sooner, putting them in an excellent position for career progression and further professional development.

Course Content

As with all apprenticeships, degree apprentices will remain in paid work during their studies and as such can continue to contribute to the day-to-day operation of the business. This is combined with a mix of classroom-based study at BCoT that is flexible and designed to fit around existing work commitments. Students are expected to attend the equivalent of up to five weekends per year (Friday to Sunday) for class based sessions.
