An exciting opportunity to engage with the new Senior Leaders Master’s Degree Apprenticeship for your senior leaders

Tuesday, May 08, 2018 - 13:48

We have been working with Muller, Bakkavor and Associated British Foods on a project to develop a curriculum for the Senior Leaders Master’s Degree apprenticeship which is contextualised for the food and drink manufacturing industry. The overall aim was that this programme would be developed and be available to all businesses within the sector to access. 

We have gone out to market; receiving a number proposals from training providers and we wanted to share the details of progress so far.  We have identified two providers that we are looking to work with.  The first provider is offering an Executive MBA in Management and Leadership as part of this standard, this is an open programme which offers a great opportunity to share learning experiences with people from other industries where the projects, assignments and coaching activities are all contextualised for the food and drink sector.  The second provider is looking to develop a MSc in Strategic Leadership in the Food and Drink Industry, again this will be an open programme which is specifically aimed at senior leaders from the food and drink manufacturing sector and is likely to be more appropriate for leaders within your operational functions.

If you are interested in finding out more information or would like to be involved in the development stage of the MSc or think you may be interested in putting people onto these programmes, then please contact Maria Calen at
