Success by Degrees

Congratulations to CWT Chamber Training's Degree students, who graduated on 16 July 2014 at the Trentham Garden Estate in Staffordshire.

Success and progression as an individual often goes hand-in-hand with success of their business.

Over a number of years of delivering the Leadership and Management Foundation Degree, validated through Staffordshire University, CWT's graduates have gained promotions to directorship level, moved into senior jobs at leading global organisations and even put their new skills and knowledge to practice into expanding their own businesses.

In addition to the FD's graduating students, this year's ceremony also featured CWT's first cohort of B.A. Honours Business Management 'Top-up' Degree graduates. Having successfully completed the Foundation Degree themselves the previous year, the group benefitted from the unique opportunity of being able to gain two degree level qualifications over a period of three years. The 'Top-up' course has proven to be a great success, with this first group of nine students achieving outstanding results including three First Class Honours Degrees and two 2:1 degrees. All nine participating students gained their B.A. Business Management degree.

Before undertaking the Leadership and Management Foundation Degree, Emma Lawrence FdA, held the Operations Director post at DSA Design, a family run exhibitions company that provides global event solutions. After completing the degree, Emma told CWT, "I've had many light bulb moments during my studies for the Foundation Degree in Leadership and Management" and has since accepted the role of Managing Director of the company. Business Management Degree student Paul Miles B.A. (Hons.), FdA successfully completed the Honours Top-up course and subsequently landed his dream job at Jaguar Land Rover, adding "having a proven track record was vital in my being considered by JLR for this particular post. Undertaking and successfully completing the Honours Degree was pivotal in my appointment. I would not be working at JLR without it".

With business demands ever increasing, the need to perform effectively in the workplace, contribute ideas and seek the opportunity for improvement is crucial to keeping ahead of the competition.

The Leadership and Management Foundation Degree is an excellent option for aspirational professionals and managers, across a wide range of industry backgrounds, to gain valuable skills such as critical thinking, problem solving, decision making, managing projects and financial management, to name a few.

The business-focused way in which the course is delivered at CWT also ensures minimal disruption to the workplace for Higher Education students.
