We are delighted to announce the launch of the Senior Leaders Master’s Degree Apprenticeship, which combines a Master’s degree and an Apprenticeship. This programme will be delivered by Coventry Business School, commencing in January 2019 and upon successful completion of the programme, delegates will be awarded an MBA. This programme, which replaces the existing staff MBA offering, is specifically designed to identify and develop the strategic leadership abilities and potential of talented members of staff. It will help to ensure the Group’s long-term leadership resource and support and mirror the Group policy on staff development.
