Learning and assessment
An apprentice is required to submit a work-based portfolio of how they have applied the knowledge in the workplace. This is constituted of 12-15 pieces of evidence. The Management Project is a major piece of applied work, based on a problem, issue, challenge or opportunity for their organisation.
After the apprentice has submitted their project we conduct an End Point Assessment with their management and an independent assessor. This is in the form of a final report and a presentation or viva. Having successfully completed their degree, along with their portfolio and end point assessment the student will be awarded their apprenticeship and be entitled to apply to be a Chartered Manager (CMgr) status, as well as being able to apply to become a Fellow of the Chartered Management Institute - FCMI (where appropriate).
Thus the Senior Leaders Master's Apprenticeship is an MBA plus a portfolio and end point assessment to qualify the apprenticce for CMgr and FCMI.
