Master’s Level apprenticeship programmes

The most impactful way of investing your Apprenticeship Levy fund is to develop leaders who can look up and out, think strategically, provide a sense of purpose, act with agility, and develop an ethical, innovative and supportive culture that delivers results. This is the aim of the Level 7 Senior Leader Master’s Degree Apprenticeship.
