Stand Up For Apprenticeships

Tell your management apprenticeship story in 2020

Management Apprenticeships deliver better managers across the nation. They play an essential role in developing the high skill, high wage economy that the UK wants and needs, but their future is uncertain.

If you feel as strongly as we do, act with us and share your story.

Apprenticeships that Develop World Class Managers

CMI knows that management apprenticeships, particularly higher level degree apprenticeships like the CMDA, are a vital lever to drive personal development and national productivity.

But what’s really exciting is how management apprenticeships are driving social mobility and diversity, and ultimately reshaping the face of the future of management in the UK.

48% of all management apprentices are female and 52% are male
11% of all management apprentices are under 25
two in five apprentices come from deprived areas of the UK

Management Degree Apprenticeships are at Risk

Tell your story

CMI works day in and day out with inspirational leaders - those who have overcome barriers; those who have made a real difference to their business, their organisation and their community - that’s why we know that management apprenticeships work.

We need your help to take this message to Parliament. We want to help policy-makers understand the transformative effects that your management apprenticeship has had on your life, so that these opportunities continue to be available for the next generation.

So this year, we’re encouraging you to write to your local MP to tell them your story. Tell them what your apprenticeship means to you, what it's helped you achieve, and how its changed the way you look at your job.

And if you’re an employer who has seen first-hand the impact that management apprentices can have? Tell your MP that you’re a local apprenticeship champion who wants other businesses in the constituency to feel the benefits.
