Develop degree apprenticeships at master’s level with Cranfield University

One of the most powerful ways you can generate value from your Apprenticeship Levy is to upskill your existing workforce. 

The introduction of Cranfield Masterships®, Master's level Apprenticeships (Level 7) means you can use the Levy to accelerate the development of your middle and senior managers, and employees in senior technical positions so that they can contribute much more as they move into leadership positions. 

Cranfield Masterships are an opportunity to do that with a partner that has a global reputation for employer-led training with a backbone of academic rigour and quality assurance.Read more Read less
