More than 360 people joined the Worcestershire LEP and Worcestershire County Council at Treetops Pavilion, West Midland Safari Park

A record number of guests attended the Worcestershire Apprentice Awards 2017 final to celebrate the success of the county’s best apprentices, employers, schools and training providers.

More than 360 people joined the Worcestershire LEP and Worcestershire County Council at Treetops Pavilion, West Midland Safari Park to be entertained by comedian and Radio 4 panellist Mark Watson.

The two top awards went to CP Foods UK from Kidderminster, which won the Worcestershire Apprenticeship Employer of the Year award, sponsored by Yamazaki Mazak (UK) Ltd, and Ben Hyde from Sanctuary Group in Worcester who won the Worcestershire Apprentice of the Year, sponsored by Worcester Bosch Group.

Other winners included Droitwich High School, Bewdley-based The Development Manager Ltd, Green Lighting Ltd of Worcester, Titania, based in Worcester, and Amada UK Ltd, from Kidderminster.

Gary Woodman, Chief Executive of Worcestershire Local Enterprise Partnership, said: “Well done to all of the finalists. As always, the awards were a fantastic celebration of the achievements of our county’s apprenticeships.

“I would like to give my thanks to all of the sponsors who were involved in supporting the awards and to everyone across the county that help to make apprenticeships the success that they are.”

Cllr Marcus Hart, Cabinet Member with responsibility for Education and Skills at Worcestershire County Council, added: “It was fantastic to see so much enthusiasm and support for apprenticeships at the awards ceremony.

“It is clear that apprenticeships benefit our local workforce in so many ways and I would urge all interested businesses and young people to find out more about Worcestershire’s apprenticeships on the website.”

Mark Watson said: “It was a pleasure to host the awards and to celebrate the successes of all apprentices, as well as the employers, schools and training providers that dedicate their guidance and experience to them.”
