Independent provider of higher education, University Centre Quayside (UCQ) launches the Chartered Manager Degree Apprenticeship (CMDA). This is at its six regional centres in Birmingham, Leeds, Liverpool, London, Manchester and Newcastle.
Nick Mapletoft, Principal and CEO of UCQ, said:
Stuart Cameron, managing director of UCQ’s commercial operations, added:
“There is a vast pool of great talent in UK managers. However, according to research undertaken by the CMI four out of five British managers hold no formal qualifications in management. This under-investment is a key reason for the UK’s lagging levels of productivity. It is also a major factor behind the introduction of the CMDA.”
“We aim to help employers drive business performance and improve results through the development of existing and prospective managers. We developed the CMDA with specialists who understand leadership and management realities.”
Alex Muir, relationship manager for the Chartered Management Institute (CMI), said: “We are the only UK chartered professional body dedicated to promoting the highest standards of management and leadership excellence. We’re delighted to be working with UCQ.”
“The CMDA offers the triple guarantee of a quality degree, on-the-job experience and also a professional pathway for future development.”
