Partnership with Barclays will deliver new Government-backed programme
L-R: Jamala Osman, Alice Jones, Larrissa Way, Rebekah Taitt, Alice Hendy, Mary Sullivan, Sophia Khan and Sophie Hoodless.
The programme is one of the first of the new high-level apprenticeships which have been launched by the Department for Business, Innovation & Skills (BIS).
The first cohort of 22 students started the Chartered Manager Degree Apprentice programme at Anglia Ruskin’s Lord Ashcroft International Business School this term.
Anglia Ruskin has been delivering a work-based degree as part of Barclays’ existing talent programme for the past eight years, and the BA (Hons) Management & Leadership will provide the degree component of the new apprenticeship which replaces the previous programme.
Barclays apprentices therefore not only receive an award-winning degree, but also achieve Chartered Manager status from the Chartered Management Institute (CMI) upon successful completion of the programme.
L-R: James Page, Jack Bowen, Lucas Solkhon, Leif Monument and James Stoye.
Vanessa Knowles, Programme Leader for the Barclays Leadership & Management programme at Anglia Ruskin, said:
The latest cohort of Barclays graduates from the BA (Hons) Management & Leadership course received their degree certificates in October, and celebrated with a special event at the Houses of Commons.
Of the 39 graduates, 15 were awarded first class honours and prizes were awarded to Matthew Allen for the Most Outstanding Academic Achievement, James Page and Sophie Hoodless for the Course Ambassador Award and Alice Jones for the Spirit of the Programme Award.
