UCEM launches Senior Leaders Master's Degree Apprenticeship

University College of Estate Management will begin its first postgraduate apprenticeship programme in March

Posted by Julian Owen | January 15, 2018 | Students

The Senior Leaders Masters Degree Apprenticeship is designed to develop a specially selected group of leaders who can contribute to the future success of the Built Environment sector. Apprentices will study UCEM’s accredited MBA Construction and Real Estate programme and develop management and leadership skills in the workplace. On completion, they will achieve Chartered Member or Chartered Fellow status, awarded by the Chartered Management Institute (CMI).

The programme is targeted at those in senior leadership and management roles who need training to develop the knowledge, skills and behaviours set out in the apprenticeship standard. It is open to employers of all sizes, including those who pay the Apprenticeship Levy and smaller employers who don’t.

'This will help to equip the future leaders of our sector with the required skills to meet the challenges that lie ahead.”

UCEM Principal, Ashley Wheaton, said: “UCEM is already the largest provider of Chartered Surveyor and Surveying Technician apprenticeships, working with over 120 employers to deliver their apprenticeship training. We are excited to be offering a leadership apprenticeship programme tailored to the needs of the Built Environment, using our well-established online delivery model. This will help to equip the future leaders of our sector with the required skills to meet the challenges that lie ahead.”

To be accepted onto the programme, applicants will need to be based in England and meet a number of eligibility criteria, including fulfilling academic entry requirements and demonstrating that their employment situation will provide the relevant workplace training and assessment requirements.

For further details, please take a look at the apprenticeships section of the UCEM website or contact the Enterprise Business Development team by emailing businessdevelopment@ucem.ac.uk.
