Our Chartered Manager Degree Apprenticeship (CMDA) Charity has been designed by employers, ensuring that the course balances business education with workplace requirements. Over 150 third sector managers have already graduated from our specialist Cert HE leadership programme – this experience has shaped our degree apprenticeship.

Apprentices will develop a full range of management and leadership skills directly relevant to your organisation. You will also have the opportunity to instil your business culture and working style from an early stage.

Good leadership and management is fundamental in delivering social or environmental impact while remaining financially sustainable. Every charity or social enterprise in the UK needs to treasure their top performers and develop them for the future.
