Insight into MSc Engineering Leadership Apprenticeship

Webinars 12 August 2020

Webinar – An insight into the MSc Engineering Leadership and Management Executive Apprenticeship – Wednesday 12 August 2020, 10.30 BST

This part time MSc is offered by the National Structural Integrity Research Centre (NSIRC) in Cambridge and awarded by Aston University. It can be funded from the Apprenticeship Levy so there are no tuition fees to pay.

The course has been designed specifically to meet the needs of businesses and to develop future leaders. The ‘how’ of leadership and experiential learning is emphasised, and the demand-led approach allows the content to be shaped according to both the employee and employer's interests.

The next enrolment for this course is October 2020 and will be the last chance to use the Apprenticeship Levy.

This webinar has been put together by both NSIRC and Aston University to give you an insight in to the course and everything it has to offer.

Who should attend?

  • Anyone interested in furthering their knowledge who wants to develop their career and progress to leadership positions.
  • Those who have had some experience of leading people, projects, operations or services.
  • Individuals who have either a UK honours degree (or equivalent) or five years’ relevant work experience in an engineering environment.

We will be publishing the full webinar Agenda shortly – please check back for further details.
