Business and Management Qualifications

These are our core business and management qualifications which include progression to University degrees. They also provide progression from levels 3 to 7 and were developed with input from colleges, higher education institutions and sector skills councils.

Including a range of optional units at every level these qualifications allow centres and learners to specialise in different areas whilst using the mandatory units to develop core knowledge required by all managers.

Progression Routes

Top-up your management qualification to an honours degree or to an MBA. Topping-up to a bachelor degree following achievement of a Level 5 Extended Diploma will typically take twelve months of further study. Topping up to an MBA from a Level 7 Diploma typically takes 6 to 9 months.

Qualification Specifications

Each of our qualifications’ details are contained within a qualification specification document which includes the learning outcomes, assessment criteria, indicative content and further information.
