Hallam and Nestlé UK Launch Ground-breaking Chartered Manager Degree Apprenticeships

Hallam and Nestlé UK Launch Ground-breaking Chartered Manager Degree Apprenticeships

The first young people have signed up to begin a Chartered Manager Degree Apprenticeship with Sheffield Hallam University and Nestlé UK, a new kind of apprenticeship that leads to a degree, a guaranteed job and membership of the Chartered Management Institute.

Thirteen apprentices have signed a commitment statement, marking the official start of the three year placement. The scheme will see apprentices taking up full time roles within Nestlé whilst also spending six weeks a year studying at Hallam’s Sheffield Business School.

On successful completion of the scheme, apprentices will gain a degree from Sheffield Hallam, be offered a permanent job by Nestlé and become professional member of the Chartered Management Institute.

In addition apprentices will also see their course fees funded by the company and receive a salary during their placement.

Initially thirteen apprentices will be studying on the programme, split between Nestlé’s Gatwick Head Office and the Confectionery Headquarters in York.

Higher and degree apprenticeships at Hallam began in September 2015 after the University successfully bid for funding over 240 higher apprentices (HAs) from the Skills Funding Agency, the highest allocation for any university.

Building on extensive expertise in working with business and professional bodies, Sheffield Hallam University offers a range of higher apprenticeships including engineering, business and management, facilities management and construction.

Professor Isobel Doole, current Dean of Sheffield Business School says: “We are proud to be pioneering new Chartered Manager Degree Apprenticeship, which will give young people an outstanding opportunity to become the next generation of business leaders. We have worked closely with Nestlé to create these bespoke, ground-breaking new programmes, which are designed to give apprentices all the skills they need to succeed in management.”

Dame Fiona Kendrick, CEO & Chairman of Nestlé UK&I, adds: “Nestle are delighted to be part of this programme, the first of its kind in the food industry. This is the next step on Nestlé’s journey to creating flexible entry points and varied career development opportunities for young people in the UK.”
