Our degree-level apprenticeship in management provides a comprehensive, structured training programme over four years. It offers a good introduction to a variety of project areas and the chance to learn the skills a good manager needs.

The programme is designed to develop professional managers, capable of managing complex projects and delivering impact at a strategic and/or operational level.

What you'll be doing

This four-year scheme is broken down into eight, six-month placements. Although it'll be mainly office based, at least one is likely to be on frontline transport operations, with some shift work involved. For instance, you might be a customer service manager at a busy Zone 1 Tube station, leading a team to make sure the morning peak or a big concert passes smoothly.

Office placements are wide-ranging, and might involve finance, external communications, strategy, or projects to introduce exciting new technology that will transform our customers' experience.

Training & development

Successful apprentices will achieve a degree in management and business (either BA (Hons); BSc (Hons) or BBA (Hons)] and full chartered membership of the CMI, incorporating vocational and academic elements. You will also become chartered members of the Chartered Management Institute (CMgr MCMI).

Please be aware

Due to the nature of our apprenticeships programme, if you already have a qualification at the same or higher level in a similar discipline to the scheme you're applying for, we reserve the right to reject your application. To make sure, you can double check your eligibility by emailing us at:

If you do already hold a degree-level qualification, we would recommend looking our graduate programme opportunities instead.
