AAC Awards 22 National Finalist

The FE Week and AELP AAC Apprenticeship Awards, now in their fifth year, are a celebration of the very best in apprenticeship delivery and provide well-deserved recognition for the people, teams and organisations that make excellent apprenticeships happen.

Myerscough is nominated in the illustrious Apprenticeship Provider of the Year category, alongside Manchester Metropolitan University, Realise and Remit Training, as well as in the category Agriculture, Environmental & Animal Care Apprenticeship Provider of the Year, up against Craven College.

Hundreds of entries were received from training providers, colleges, universities and employers, with the finalists going forward to the national awards ceremony in March.

Shane Mann, managing director of FE Week’s publisher Lsect, said: “We have once again been blown away by the quality of nominations and especially of this year’s finalists.

“It’s been an incredibly challenging couple of years for apprentices, employers and providers, so to be able to return to in-person celebrations this year feels extra special.

“The ingenuity, creativity and care taken by our finalists to give apprentices the best experience possible throughout the pandemic has been inspirational. I can’t wait for the entire apprenticeships sector to come together this March to mark their exceptional work.”

AELP chief executive Jane Hickie said: “I am delighted that for the fifth year, FE Week and AELP have come together to host the AAC Apprenticeship Awards.

“We received so many strong nominations across all categories, highlighting the amazing work of providers and employers. This shows the real strength of our sector, despite the challenges of the past few years.

“Throughout the judging process, we saw so many impressive examples of best practice in delivery for our learners and employers. I am really looking forward to the AAC gala dinner on March 22, where the winners will be announced.”

Winners will be announced at the FE Week Annual Apprenticeship Conference taking place on March 21-22 in Birmingham.
