On Friday 14th September, TB+A attended the London final of the National Apprenticeship Awards 2018, bringing together top employers and apprentices from all across the region. The winners and highly commended awards were announced at a prestigious ceremony, which took place at the river side setting at Glazier Hall, London Bridge and a list of all regional winners and runners up can be found here: https://bit.ly/2NNOUip.

TB+A were over the moon to take home two titles, including the BAE Systems SME Employer of the Year award and the Highly Commended award for Recruitment Excellence.

Terry Canty, Partner at TB+A later commented, “We are absolutely delighted to win this award as recognition at the highest level of our commitment to Apprenticeships. Too often there is a stigma that apprentices are cheap, temporary, unskilled labour that fill a medium term lower tier gap. For us that couldn’t be further from the truth. Those that go through our apprenticeship scheme are gaining professional qualifications and training from some of the very best in our industry with the opportunity to own our business. When they complete their qualifications they are far more rounded engineers aligned with our values than any that follow other routes. They are not only our leaders of the future but for those who really push the boundaries, are in their own way, the leaders for now.

He went on to say: I firmly believe that all businesses should embrace apprenticeships as the best way to maintain and grow a sustainable business. Our path on the apprenticeship journey has been over some time now but for me it is only the start. We are totally committed to ensuring its growth and success not only in our business but for others in the wider community by spreading the word that apprenticeships work”.
