London and south west-based adviser firm Paradigm Norton has launched a leadership academy in partnership with the University of the West of England (UWE).
The academy will take on a maximum of eight Paradigm Norton employees per academic year. The course will see participants study modules in self-leadership, personal vision, succession, sustainability and legacy and conflict and confrontation.
Those who complete the course will receive an accredited level seven certificate of leadership and management from UWE, as well as credits towards completing a further two years to achieve a Masters of Business Administration at the university.
Paradigm Norton CEO Barry Horner (pictured) said the firm had launched the academy alongside the university as a result of a desire to "equip the future leaders of the business to lead with excellence".
UWE associate director Lynda Williams added: "Working in tandem with Paradigm Norton to bring this course to life has been fantastic, to be able to offer their team a sophisticated learning environment and a chance to build on their leadership skills is very exciting."
