EXETER COLLEGE: Apprenticeship Employer Makes Regional Final At The National Apprenticeship Awards 2017
EXETER, August 18, 2017 – Exeter College have once again shown their Think Apprenticeship service is a force to be reckoned with one of their employers being shortlisted at regional stage of The National Apprenticeship Awards 2017.
Awcock Ward Partnership (AWP) was formed in late in 2012 with seven members of staff. Four years on they have a workforce of 27, including apprentices from Exeter College’s Think Apprenticeship programme. One of AWP’s first Apprentices, Tom Richards, has now progressed to study for his HNC in Engineering, showing their dedication and commitment to the lifelong learning of their staff and Apprentices.
Sophie Brewer, Office Manager, said
“We are thrilled to be picked as a regional finalist for this prestigious award. It is a real encouragement to be recognised for the work we are doing with our apprentices and hope that through exposure to other similar companies we can learn how to keep improving.”
Exeter College is no stranger to the National Apprenticeship Awards and have had employers in the regional finals for the past three years including local nursery, Kiddi Caru, who were highly commended at last year’s awards.
The National Apprenticeship Awards, now in their 14th year, aims to showcase the diverse and ever-growing range of industries and sectors working with apprentices and to showcase exceptional apprentices and their employers.
If AWP are successful in the regional finals they will be in with a chance of winning nationally at an award ceremony held in October.
