McDonald’s School Leaver programme lasts five years and gives students the opportunity to follow a structured training programme, which leads to valuable qualifications. At the end of it, participants will have gained loads of practical experience and progressed through different management roles. They will have helped make real business decisions and could even go on to manage their own restaurant.
There is a financial advantage, too. The School Leaver Management Degree Apprenticeship is a great opportunity to earn while you learn. You won’t have the tuition fees, or the student loan, but you will be paid a competitive salary that increases as you progress through the programme.
The programme initially leads to a level 3 apprenticeship. You then have the opportunity to gain a BA (hons) degree in business management and retail, and chartered manager status with the Chartered Management Institute (CMI).
