Senior Leader Apprenticeships (SLA)

There are a limited number of places available each year to Loughborough University staff for the Senior Leader Apprenticeships, run through our Loughborough Business School.

The places are fully funded by the University through our Apprenticeship Levy for two years (up to Postgraduate Diploma level) and enable staff to study part-time towards a Postgraduate qualification and to develop the management and leadership capabilities required to lead at a senior level.

There is one option available:

  • PG Diploma in Strategic Leadership

Further information can be found on the prospectus page:

If you would like to find out more, please contact Vicki Unwin by emailing

The programmes requires you to be released from your role for at least 20% of your time to support off-the-job training.  You will therefore need the full support of both your line manager and your Dean/Director and should seek this in advance of expressing an interest. 

Expressions of interest are now open for September 2024 entry and should be submitted by Friday 28th June 2024.
