Level 4 Diploma in Management

Learn the skills you need to become an effective manager

Level 4 would suit you if you’re a manager who is responsible for the operational side of the business. The qualification develops the knowledge and skills you need in order to take on higher level responsibilities such as planning and implementing change.

*Government funding available. Complete the form to see if you qualify.

How do I achieve the qualification?

This management course is split up into different units which must total 53 credits for you to achieve your Level 4 Diploma. You must take 4 mandatory units totalling 17 credits, however, there’s also flexibility within the course for you to choose units which really interest you.

Please be aware you will be required to do an initial assessment in order to qualify for government funding and achieve the minimum entry requirements for each course.

You will also be required to complete functional skills exams for English, Maths and ICT unless you have any exemptions or have previously achieved the required levels.


How will I be assessed?

You’ll be assessed through a mixture of ‘at home’ and ‘at work’ tasks. Before this happens, your assessor will talk with you to find out what your preferred learning style is and tailor your course assessments around it.

How long is the course?

As with anything worthwhile, this course requires you to dedicate some of your time to it. This can be up to 12 months, but afterwards you’ll have a professionally recognised qualification in management. Once you’ve added this to your CV, you can take your career to the next level 


Do I need to attend class? 

This is a work-based course and there are no classes to attend! Your Parenta assessor will visit you on a regular basis and will support you in between visits via the telephone and online. You’ll complete the coursework online in your own time.

Adesola Fasiku
Cornerstone After School Club

Parenta services have been highly professional and extremely useful for my business in finding apprentices and providing the support and training to our nursery team.

Lisa Lucas
Meadow View Childcare

We are a newly formed company but have a great deal of experience with childcare and staff undertaking NVQs. We spoke to four different companies about taking on our NVQ training and Aleece was by far the most efficient, polite and informative of all of those that we spoke to, hence why we chose to go with Parenta.

Paul Evans
Perfect Start Day Nurseries

Laura is amazing and very supportive to both the apprentices and us as a business. The only concern we have is the 10% fee that we have to pay as a business for staff who are currently working here who would like to do a course. It puts a stopper on our teams continued professional development if the business cannot afford to pay the 10%. We understand this payment for staff who are joining us but not those who are already in our employment.

Jes Taylor
Young Friends Nursery

The service has been great. Richard is very helpful and explains all the processes and what is expected of the nursery and the apprentice. Lilly keeps us up to date with many helpful articles via email. We have used Parenta before and will do again.

Jane Harlow
Club Kingswood Nursery

Angela is communicative, supportive and honest. She is encouraging our employees to reach their potential whist setting fair goals and targets.

Laura Gladman
Thorney Island Nursery

Parenta have been a wonderful help in our search for nursery apprentices. Courtney has always been extremely professional and responsive and is a pleasure to deal with. She has always maintained a good level of contact with us and seems to have a really good understanding of our specific requirements as a nursery. Apprentices play an important role within our setting and it is so nice to finally find a company that understands our needs and gives exceptional customer service. Thank you Parenta.
