National Occupational Standards

The ATHE Level 4 qualifications in Management provide much of the underpinning knowledge and understanding for the National Occupational Standards in Management and Leadership.

These qualifications have been developed with the support of centres who are currently delivering qualifications at this level in Management or who plan to do so in the future.


On successful completion of a Level 4 qualification in Management there are a number of progression opportunities. Learners may progress to:
  • larger qualifications at the same level e.g. from a Certificate to the Diploma or Extended Diploma in Management or related qualification for example the Diploma in Management for Travel and Tourism
  • a degree programme in a higher education institution and claim exemptions for some of the units completed.
