Joe Crossley, CEO at Qube Learning

Leading training provider Qube Learning has announced the launch of their first Degree Apprenticeship in collaboration with Surrey Business School at the University of Surrey.

The relationship will see Qube Learning and Surrey Business School offer the Chartered Manager Degree Apprenticeship, delivering world class leadership and management development, resulting in a double accredited BSc (Hons) degree and Chartered Manager status.

The University of Surrey is one of a small number of research-intensive universities that will offer a Degree Apprenticeship, which will allow students to receive a qualification from an established academic institution funded via their employer and the Apprenticeship Levy.

The course is available to new entrants into the workplace looking to learn while gaining valuable in situ experience, skilled professional managers wanting to expand their knowledge base, including leadership responsibility, and companies looking to secure the best possible training for staff on an accredited, innovative, well respected scheme, supported by the Government’s Apprenticeship Levy.

The selection criteria for the course will be set by individual employers. University entrance requirements for this Degree Apprenticeship are: A levels at Grades A, B, B or other equivalent level 3 qualifications or equivalent professional body qualifications.

The University will also consider relevant leadership and management experience gained in the workplace on a case by case basis. English and Maths at level 2 (GCSE or equivalent) are also essential.

Joe Crossley, CEO at Qube Learning said:

“The decision to work with an establishment, such as Surrey Business School at the University of Surrey was a magnetic approach. With Qube’s in depth knowledge in training and theirs in education, it was an opportunity to create a worthy avenue with several experts that could host such a programme, and help individuals increase their confidence and understanding in a subject. We are committed to helping people learn and succeed to the best of their ability and are enthused by this new programme and look forward to welcoming students on the course.”

Professor Andy Adcroft, Deputy Dean of Surrey Business School, said:

“We are excited to be launching our first Degree Apprenticeship in partnership with specialist training provider Qube Learning. Our Degree Apprenticeship has been developed to nurture future talent and fill specific skills shortages throughout England. As one of the few highly rated, research intensive universities to offer degree apprenticeships, we have invested in an innovative blended delivery model which will enable employers from all over the country to benefit. Our first Degree Apprenticeship heralds an exciting new chapter in the way we work with businesses to deliver industry-relevant training.”

The course is open for registration with the first cohort starting in May 2019. If you are interested in finding out more about the positive opportunities of a Degree Apprenticeship, either as a student or an employer, then speak with the experts at Qube Learning.
