Key features of 2016 Level 6 Management qualifications

These qualifications provide a flexible route for learners who have already achieved management qualifications at a lower level as well as for learners who do not have business or management qualifications, but may have qualifications in other areas and/or prior management experience in the work place. The qualifications support progression to further study for example to ATHE’s Level 7 qualifications in Strategic Management, to an MBA or to employment.

We have responded to feedback from higher education providers and centres and included a number of new features in the revised qualifications.

  • All the units will now be graded pass, merit and distinction and learners will receive an overarching grade of pass, merit or distinction.
  • We have updated the existing units in response to feedback and added new units such as Marketing Communications, Sales, Branding
  • We have created new pathways which will allow learners to specialise in an area of their choice if they prefer Our new pathways are
    • General (unendorsed)
    • Finance
    • Managing People
    • Operations
    • Marketing
  • We have created two sizes of qualification - 60 credits and 120 credits

Centres can structure qualification delivery in a variety of ways so that learners are able to study at a pace and in a way that suits them best, giving them the best possible chance for success.
