We're very proud that the Apprenticeship & Training Company is sponsoring the Special Recognition Award at the 2018 Oxfordshire Apprenticeship Awards, to be held in March next year. This Award will be given to an Apprentice who has overcome barriers to work or learning to achieve within their Apprenticeship.
The Special Recognition Award ties in very neatly with our company values, as we recognise that ‘achievement’ is often relative to the individual and not always about ‘qualifications’. We administer a bursary scheme on behalf of Sanctuary Housing and come into contact with young people who have significant issues that can challenge their progress, which makes their achievements all the more impressive.
If you know a gem of an Apprentice who deserves to shine, why not nominate them? It doesn't take long and what better way to show them that they're appreciated. Nominations open on 2nd October... watch this space for details.
Last year's Special Recognition Award winner certainly was a gem... read about Gemma Tuckey and what winning the Award meant to her.
