Chartered Manager Degree Apprenticeship

Interested in a Degree Apprenticeship for a September 2021 start?

In order to be considered for the opportunities when they are available, you must first complete a general Chartered Manager Degree Apprenticeship application, going through our pre-screening process outlined on the Pearson College London website. Then we will be in contact when our Employer partners have roles available.

Our Degree Apprenticeships are an excellent opportunity to:

  • Fantastic opportunities to work with leading companies
  • Study BA (Hons) Business Management at Pearson Business School and graduate with a degree which is awarded by The University of Kent
  • Have your tuition fees paid in full by your employer and graduate with zero student debt
  • Earn an annual salary

Application Process

Stage 1 - Online Application Form

You must complete an online application form that includes all the information that you would put on your CV; job history, predicted or achieved grades and a personal statement. This is a general Chartered Manager Degree Apprenticeship application, rather than for a specific role.

Applications close at 4pm on Friday 26th February.

Stage 2 - Core Abilities Test

You will then receive a core abilities test that you need to complete online, it takes 15 minutes and includes verbal, numerical and abstract reasoning questions.

Stage 3 - Professional Workshop

The next stage is a Professional Workshop, this will take place online and will consist of a written task, an interview and a critical thinking test.

Stage 4 – Opportunities with Employer Partners

If you are successful in all the previous stages (Pre-Screening) and meet the criteria set by our employer partners, we will be in contact when they have opportunities available for the relevant intake. At this point you will need to confirm if you would like to be considered and are happy for us to pass on your details.

Stage 5 – Company Assessment

If you have agreed to be considered for the specific opportunity, the company will then select a shortlist who will be invited to the company assessment. This is the final stage and if successful you will be a fully-fledged Degree Apprentice!
