Chartered Manager (Facilities Management)


The Level 6 Chartered Manager Degree Apprenticeship (Facilities Management) is a trailblazer apprenticeship that has been developed by a group of employers, in liaison with the Chartered Management Institute (CMI) and higher education providers.

The apprenticeship provides an alternative to graduate recruitment and the opportunity to ‘grow your own’ talent. It includes a combination of work-based learning and business education, which leads to a BA (Honours) Professional Practice in Management and professional recognition through the award of Chartered Manager status (CMgr MCMI).

A range of contextualised modules are covered, providing progressive development for the students through each year of study, including

  • Contemporary Business Environment
  • Property Asset Management
  • Managing Operations and the Supply Chain
  • Innovation and Performance in FM
  • Leadership in Contemporary Organisations
  • Strategic Property Management

Our course will deliver against the nationally recognised Chartered Manager Apprenticeship Standard. The programme is suitable both for new recruits (eg school leavers entering into management positions) and for developing aspiring or existing managers already in employment who do not have a relevant management degree.

If you have 15 or more potential apprentices, we can tailor the programme to your business.

Course length and entry requirements

Successful participants will gain Chartered Manager Status (CMgr MCMI) and will be awarded a CMI Level 5 Diploma and a BA (Honours) Professional Practice in Management degree. The course typically takes three and a half years to complete.

Eligible candidates will meet the following entry requirements

  • For school leavers as direct entrants into the business
    • 112 UCAS points or equivalent with a minimum of 64 points from two A levels or equivalent
  • For post experience applicants
    • one A Level or equivalent and relevant work experience

In the absence of A levels, admission can be based on suitable work experience.

International applicants should meet the academic criteria and all requirements of Tier 4 visa for entry to the UK.
