Apprentices

Boost your career with world class business education, work-based learning and professional development through to Chartered Manager status.

CMI’s management and leadership apprenticeships provide on-the-job education for non-graduate managers and school leavers alike to gain a management qualification and professional accreditation.

Apprentices who undertake an apprenticeship can expect to develop all aspects of their management and leadership skills in line with CMI’s broader competency framework. When they complete the programme, they will be CMI members with the complete suite of skills that distinguishes a professional manager. These skills, which are keenly sought after by employers, include:

  • Self awareness;
  • Setting strategy;
  • Building and leading teams;
  • Fostering inclusive and ethical cultures;
  • Leading change;
  • Project management;
  • Financial management;
  • Innovation;
  • Risk management; and

Meet the Apprentices

At school I always preferred to learn by doing, and so I felt an apprenticeship was the right course for me. I find it incredible that at the age of 21, I’ll have not only a degree but also a professional status. I’ll already be in a role with a job under my belt and I’ll have the work experience. I feel I’ll be in a better position.
