National Apprenticeship Awards 2018
Wednesday 28th November saw a glittering awards event that celebrated the success and achievements of apprenticeships across the country. The National Apprenticeship Awards are now in their fifteenth year, and PeoplePlus are in their second year of sponsorship.
This year, we sponsored the Recruitment Excellence Award, which celebrates employers who have attracted a diverse and high-quality apprenticeship workforce through new and innovative approaches to recruitment. This is something we are passionate about at PeoplePlus and is embodied in our own talent recruitment service that hires on attitudes and behaviours.
As the UK’s largest apprenticeship provider we are deeply proud to be associated with recognising apprentices that have shown outstanding commitment to their learning and in turn made a significant contribution to their workplace. As well as a key way to reduce the country’s skills gap, apprenticeships are vital in equipping workforces of today and the future with the skills that employers need to grow and compete in an ever challenging marketplace.
Managing Director, Simon Rouse who attended and presented at the awards comments:
“The National Apprenticeship Awards are a true celebration of success. I’d like to congratulate everyone who took part, and especially the winners and highly commended of each category. We heard many life changing stories last night, which really goes to show the genuine difference apprenticeships make in transforming peoples’ lives for the better.”
At PeoplePlus we are committed to making a direct difference to the lives of 1 million people by 2022 and the apprenticeship awards really demonstrate just how much apprenticeships can change and impact on personal and professional development.
