Course Summary

The Executive Education Leadership MBA has been designed to equip experienced education managers with the knowledge and skills required to lead a modern academy or group of academies. The programme will provide you with an understanding of operational and marketing issues that face those who lead and manage academies. Graduates will obtain an MBA Executive Education Leadership award. In addition, successful completion of the apprenticeship will require the apprentice to pass an ‘end point assessment’ (EPA) which ensures their suitability and competency for the role. The degree apprenticeship route will allow you to work and study for your degree at the same time meaning you will have a minimum of three years work experience upon graduation. Your employer and/or the government will pay your tuition fees for your apprenticeship programme and you will be earning a salary at the same time.

The assessment for the modules involves both formative and summative elements. Normally, a module consists of two pieces of summative assessment. Formative assessments, including class discussions, presentation, report writing, with feedback will be provided which will enable you to develop their knowledge and understanding of materials covered in each module. You will need to take an End Point Assessment (EPA) upon completion of the degree programme. This will consist of two distinct assessment methods; a project showcase based on a work-based project (including report, presentation and questioning) and a professional discussion based on review of portfolio. The course is specifically designed for those aspiring to work within management and exposes the student to a variety of operational and functional management concepts and practices. This will enable students to gain a greater appreciation of the operational, functional and international aspects of business and management.
