You must be employed in a business environment carrying out management responsibilities for at least 16 hours per week. Progression into this Higher Apprenticeship may be from a wide number of routes due to the varying backgrounds and past academic and work related experiences of apprentices.

The Higher Apprenticeship has been designed to be suitable for candidates from any sector or industry and as such, is a suitable progression route from almost all Advanced Apprenticeships.
