The ATHE Level 5 Extended Diploma in Management was developed with support and feedback from UK universities. It is a 120-credit Ofqual regulated qualification and is the equivalent size and level to the second year of a bachelor’s degree.
This qualification has been designed for learners who are seeking to progress to take the final year of a bachelor’s degree course in an area of management and aims to develop learners understanding of management and to develop key management skills. As well as the Extended Diploma option (120 credit) there is a Diploma option (60 credit) and a Certificate option (30 credit).
There are three different sized qualifications. If you study the 120-credit extended diploma then you must study all 5 mandatory units and pick 3 optional units. If you study the 60-credit diploma then you must study all 3 mandatory units and 1 optional unit. The 30-credit certificate requires you to study any two of the units from the 60-credit diploma. To see the contents of each unit you can view the Qualification Specification.
