Tom Bush, Qualifications Manager: We are delighted our Apprenticeship programme has been recognised at the Apprenticeship Awards, this is a fantastic achievement for us which showcases our commitment to providing excellent career pathways via our Apprenticeship programme. Winning this award would not be possible without the dedication and enthusiasm from our Apprentice mentors and managers, and of course our Apprentices for working hard to continue developing their skills and striving to achieve the very best results.
The National Apprenticeship Awards, now in their fifteenth year, showcase the diverse range of sectors engaged with Apprenticeships and celebrate outstanding Apprentices, employers and those individuals who go above and beyond to champion Apprenticeships. Hosted by the National Apprenticeship Service, the awards recognise excellence in businesses that grow their own talent with Apprenticeships, and Apprentices who have made a significant contribution to their workplaces. They provide businesses and individuals with a platform to showcase how Apprenticeships have made a real difference to their organisation and their careers.
