UK property and commercial broker Barbon Insurance Group held an award ceremony for 15 employees who successfully completed its 18-month management programme, leading to the Chartered Management Institute diploma in management.
Barbon chief executive Martin Oliver said: “They are our leaders of the future and I have no doubt that each graduate will go on to achieve great success and have a positive impact on the group, as well as the insurance industry in general.”
Each of the 15 candidates won a level 3 diploma in first-line management and level 5 certificate in management and leadership.
As part of the programme, the 15 attended 12 courses on a range of topics from leadership to managing stakeholder needs and completed six assignments as well as a management project. They also attended a module on presentation skills, which helped with their end-of-year presentations to the business.
