Our People Strategy underlines our commitment to supporting those with leadership responsibilities to manage effectively. This apprenticeship is a Level 7 qualification aimed at those with at least three years of management experience. We hope it will be attractive to senior and middle managers across the University who would appreciate a structured training programme to develop themselves and their team.

The Senior Leader apprenticeship will broaden, integrate and stimulate your knowledge in a range of situations and prepare you to meet the challenges of the increasingly dynamic international business environment. It is designed to develop the practical application of the skills and behaviours which underpin successful strategic leadership and management.

The apprenticeship is due to start in March 2021 and the course-based element will last 24 months. You will study alongside the Oxford Brookes Global MBA participants. The course structure and delivery methods are designed to fit around busy working lives.

You will then complete an End Point Assessment where you will develop and present a strategic business proposal for consideration at board level or equivalent. This is an opportunity to use your newly-acquired knowledge and skills to make a significant difference to your department and the wider University.

The Senior Leader Apprenticeship is fully funded by the Apprenticeship Levy so there is no cost to you or your department for this training. You will receive postgraduate credits towards an MBA qualification which you can complete later if you wish (additional fees payable).
