What's Involved

Management consultants provide business advice to public, private and not-for-profit organisations. This usually involves helping them solve a challenge of some kind, such as how to grow their business, how to make it more efficient or how to organise and structure itself in a different way. Some specialist consultancies have a particular focus – for example, how to write proposals for new work, or how to change an organisation or how to develop their workforce. Others are more generalist and you could work across several different types of project. Working on client site away from your office is a possibility, while hours are varied and often depend on the project.

Tasks can be varied. You might be involved in conducting research, analysing and interpreting data or be responsible for organising the logistics of the project. As you develop and progress, you might be involved in contributing to report writing which uses statistical evidence to support recommendations and conclusions, or support the creation of slide decks to deliver key messages to clients. You might also become more focused on a particular type of service offering (financial, strategic, operational, etc.) or industry (financial services, public sector, telecommunications etc.).

The minimum duration of this apprenticeship is typically 24 months. You will be required to attend college one day per week.

This is a Level 4 Apprenticeship.

Entry Requirements

A minimum of 5 GCSE’s Grade A*- C including: • GCSE Maths Grade C/4 or Functional Skill in Maths Level 2 • GCSE English Language Grade C/4 or Functional Skill in English Level 2

Working in a role such as a Junior Management Consultant for a minimum of 30hours per week.

Where will it take me?

Upon completion of the programme, an apprentice might specialise in a particular type of consultancy or industry or remain more generalist. The skills that are developed often lead to employment in organisations within a certain industry, while some consultants who are established go on to run their own consultancy practices.

At the end of your apprenticeship, the college will work with you and your employer to help you go on to the next level of training or gain full-time employment, either with your current employer or another employer the college has access to. The skills, knowledge and qualification you will gain from your apprenticeship means that Havering College can help you get to the level employers are looking for.

Course Assessment Method

On programme assessment • Apprentices are recommended to maintain evidence of their work, via a reflective journal and folder of evidence, over the on-programme learning stage. The End Point Assessment (EPA) consists of two components – all will need to be passed in order to be awarded the apprenticeship.

  1. A Reflective Portfolio - that demonstrates competence in the knowledge, skills and behaviours demonstrated in the standard. The portfolio will contain evidence with supporting commentary, in which the apprentice considers and discusses the extent to which they have satisfactorily met the criteria (‘pass’) or exceeded it (‘distinction’). (40% of the overall mark)
  2. A Presentation and Interview. The presentation allows the apprentice to explain in detail the evidence that has been presented in their portfolio, giving them the chance to elaborate on it as well as demonstrate their communication skills. The interview will allow the independent assessor(s) to further establish that the apprentice has met the requirements of the apprenticeship standard, exploring in more details aspects of their portfolio or presentation that are of interest. (60% of the overall mark)
