Level 6 Bachelors in Project Management

A level 6 project management apprenticeship, fully funded by the apprenticeship levy and resulting in a Bachelors degree.

Level 6 Bachelors in Project Management


Project Managers are responsible for the end-to-end delivery of a project. This could be a singular project in its own right, or a sub-set of a large scale programme delivery.

A range of skills are required to be a successful project manager - from resourcing and financial management to stakeholder management, communications and reporting.

Project managers need to be effective leaders of change. Some organisations hire project managers to fulfil this role, others rely on department heads, product managers or team leaders to act as project managers - from getting buy-in for an idea, to planning the project and seeing it through to completion.

Managing a project successfully requires leadership, collaboration, integrity, inclusivity and innovation; as well as personal and professional responsibility.

The aim of this Project Manager (integrated degree) apprenticeship is to help organisations manage projects effectively.

Who is this for?

This Bachelors degree is suited to departmental managers, product managers and for those responsible for project or programme delivery within an organisation.

Upon completion, apprentices are eligible to become full members of the Association for Project Management.

Individual employers set the selection criteria for their Apprenticeships. Candidates will typically have five GCSEs at Grade C or higher, including English and Mathematics, and hold a minimum of 48 UCAS points [or equivalent].

Candidates will also demonstrate a strong personal motivation and capability to benefit from and contribute to the programme.
