Three long-serving staff at a wealth management firm will head back to the classroom next week alongside the new undergraduate cohort at a Norwich higher education institution.
Emma Clayton-Knight, James Ross and Vanessa Forster, of Chadwicks in Norwich, will be starting the newly launched Leadership and Management degree apprenticeship programme at City College.
The three-year course is validated by the University of East Anglia and has been developed with the Chartered Management Institute. City College is the first education provider in Norfolk to offer the course.
The trio have a collective 27 years of service with the company, which is funding their courses.
Brand manager Ms Clayton-Knight said: 'The deal when joining Chadwicks is to have a passion for continued learning and an interest in personal development.'
Chadwicks, based at the Enterprise Centre at UEA, also has a well-established graduate training scheme.
Managing director Richard Ross said: 'Embarking on a degree course as mature students has particular challenges and I am delighted all three are determined to succeed. Continued development is great for our employees, our business and, most importantly, our clients.'
