Banking student graduates at a ceremony in the House of Commons

Adam gained his qualification after spending three years working in a range of positions across the company while also studying to gain his degree and now has a permanent role with Barclaycard as a Change and Release Manager working in the Digital Consumer Payments Tea, who are responsible for the recent launch of bPay bands – the new wearable payment device.

The Barclays Degree Programme is a three year vocational degree providing talented young people the opportunity to work at Barclays whilst studying for a BA Hons Degree in Leadership and Management.

Mark Lancaster MP said: “It was great to see Adam receive his degree and hear about how he has taken advantage of a rare opportunity to add to his experience and kick start his career. Adam has had the opportunity to gain a University education without incurring the usual debt and has gained everything he needs to become a leader at Barclays.”

The programme has been developed in partnership with the Lord Ashcroft International Business School at Anglia Ruskin University and Nottingham Business School at Nottingham Trent University.

Adam added: “From day one I’ve been in the business getting hands on experience and putting the theory into practice. It’s been great that I’ve been able to learn as I earn and had the support of tutors, mentors and management to help me along the way.”
