Paths towards management? [HELP watch

    • Thread Starter

    Hi in need of some professional advice and help as I cannot seek any where else on this information. I want to do an business administration apprenticeship level 2 with my GCSEs and I was wondering if this can possibly be a good start towards my path to management jobs such as operations director, management type jobs where I lead a team, etc. I am planning to do level 2 and 3 business administration apprenticeships and then heading towards university doing a business management course but I am not sure if top universities accept apprentices? Or maybe there is another form of higher apprenticeships where I can continue doing apprenticeships and get a diploma equivalent to a university degree? I am just wondering is doing the apprenticeship path a sufficient way into getting a management position? Like I tried searching and Google doesn't seem to have range of information in this sector. All it says is level 2 and 3 NVQ in business admin. Does not seem to tell me where it leads to...

    Also I do have a interview for a level 2 business administration in 2 weeks.

    Anyone? o.o

    Any degree in a subject relating to the career you want is helpful!

    No degree guarantees you a job though.

    I'm a Sales Office Manager, yet don't have a degree. If you're passionate enough, you can peruse a career in almost anything you like!

    Good luck in whatever course you decide ok!
