The LMC is sharing this with General Practice, as it might be an opportunity for someone working in General Practice wishes to consider as a leadership development opportunity.

The University of Leicester are delighted to launch a new Level 7 Senior Leader Apprenticeship fully-funded through the UK Government’s Apprenticeship Levy.

Starting on Monday 8th April 2024, this exciting opportunity provides a cost-effective route to enhance your strategic management capabilities on a flexible, part-time basis.

Designed for managers looking to develop within general management roles or aspiring to move into strategic positions, the Senior Leader Apprenticeship, involves a time commitment of 11-12 hours a week with approximately 6-7 hours of this time during paid working hours.

Building on over 30 years of experience delivering flexible distance learning programmes, the Level 7 Apprenticeship combines online learning with opportunities for on-campus study alongside practical, in-work learning supported by a workplace mentor.

Upon successful completion, alongside the apprenticeship award, apprentices also gain a Postgraduate Diploma in Business Administration accredited by the Chartered Management Institute (CMI) with the option to undertake a further 6-months of study to progress onto the Leicester MBA, leading to an AMBA-accredited MBA qualification.

The Senior Leader Apprenticeship is typically studied over 24 months, with apprentices studying four 6-month modules:

Alongside this learning, one practical module,  Evidencing Senior Leader Praxis, is undertaken throughout the duration of the programme.
