As a 'Business School for Business', we have a long-standing reputation for our connections to business, professional bodies and experiential learning through work-based degrees, business development and professional programmes. We provide leadership and development opportunities for organisations to thrive and employees and individuals to succeed in their professional career.

We offer a range of professional programmes and apprenticeships which give you the chance to gain professional membership to accredited bodies including Chartered Management Institute (CMI), Chartered Institute of Personnel Development (CIPD) and Chartered Institute of Marketing (CIM).

Many of these courses have been co-created to meet the specific needs of large organisations, SMEs and individuals, linked to professional standards and funding requirements; and delivered in modes that facilitate work-based learning. By collaborating with industry, we benchmark and learn from the best in the world, ensuring our courses, research and facilities are always at the forefront of positive change.

Professional body programmes

Many of our courses offer you the chance to gain professional membership with the associated professional bodies in less than a year. Our courses focus on your employability, providing you with tailored support at every stage as you put theory into practice.

Progress your marketing career and keep ahead of the competition by studying a programme with The Chartered Institute of Marketing (CIM). As an accredited study centre, we deliver a range of courses developed by the CIM for each skill level.

The Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD)

The role of people management has developed dramatically over the years and business leaders recognise that people are the biggest drivers within their organisation, providing the biggest risk and value. In response to this Charted Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) have developed numerous courses to help you as a HR professional to enhance your skills and progress your career.

The support we’ve received from UpScaler has been invaluable in terms of helping us to form our ideas and look at our business from a different perspective. As a small but growing company, it’s sometimes hard to press pause and take a more strategic view, but the mentoring has really helped me to focus on how I can scale the business and achieve growth in a more sustainable way.
