Anglia Ruskin University Degree Apprenticeships
Degree apprenticeships are a new route into higher education. They’re a collaboration between employers, apprentices and our University – and the benefits are clear. Employers can develop emerging talent, while maximizing the potential of the Government’s new Apprenticeship Levy. And as an apprentice, you’ll achieve a degree or a Masters alongside valuable work experience.
Anglia Ruskin launches degree apprenticeship
Partnership with Barclays will deliver new Government-backed programme
Anglia Ruskin University has partnered with Barclays to deliver a new Chartered Manager Degree Apprentice programme.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.
L-R: Jamala Osman, Alice Jones, Larrissa Way, Rebekah Taitt, Alice Hendy, Mary Sullivan, Sophia Khan and Sophie Hoodless.
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.
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.
