Anglia Ruskin University Degree Apprenticeships

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.

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:

“Working with Barclays on this latest Government-led initiative is extremely exciting and signals a major shift in the way in which universities can engage more readily with organisations to help shape and deliver their talent strategies.”

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.
