Since the introduction of the Apprenticeship Levy, Cranfield School of Management has been one of the largest Level 7 Senior Leader Apprenticeship providers in the UK.

Our triple-accredited and globally ranked school has supported over 1,500 apprentices since we launched our portfolio in 2017. We currently have 1,000 apprentices across 30 cohorts attending our programmes. Our apprentices have achieved exceptional pass rates, with a first attempt pass rate of 98% and 100% success overall, with over 80% achieving merit/distinction.

We believe that there is no one mould for a Senior Leader; for this reason, we have developed a range of programmes that satisfy the differing needs of organisations and their learners across experience and specialisms.

Whether you are an apprentice looking to widen your knowledge, skills and behaviours or a business identifying a need to up-skill your workforce, we have everything you need to develop yourself and your workforce through a portfolio of Level 7 Senior Leader Apprenticeship programmes.
