ATHE’s suite of Level 6 qualifications in Business and Management enable access to the third and final level of undergraduate studies by completing qualifications in additional subjects, which are pertinent to the personal and professional development of participants for management roles in organisations. The qualifications support progression for learners from level 6 to higher qualification levels, and include: Leadership and Management, Managing Quality and Service Delivery, and Personal Leadership and Management Development. Level 6 also offers learners to specialise in one of the following five areas: (i) the unendorsed (or general) route; (ii) Finance; (iii) Managing People; (iv) Operations Management or (v) Sales and Marketing.
