Myerscough College’s apprenticeship provision has achieved national recognition at the annual AAC Apprenticeship Awards.
Myerscough was named the Agriculture, Environmental and Animal Care Apprenticeship Provider of the Year category, announced at a virtual ceremony this week.
The FE Week and AELP AAC Apprenticeship Awards are a celebration of excellence in apprenticeship delivery in the UK and provide an opportunity to give the recognition employers and providers deserve.
If you feel that you don’t want to attend College full-time but would prefer to get a job, earn a decent wage and gain qualifications whilst at work, then Myerscough College has a wide range of apprenticeship options available to you.
Myerscough is committed to supporting the development and roll out of apprenticeship opportunities across the full spectrum of public and private sector employers. As a national provider of work-based training within the land-based sector we offer a choice of apprenticeships which embrace a wide range of occupational roles and sectors. We regularly liaise with industry and our programmes are designed to develop a skilled workforce capable of meeting the challenges currently being faced by the sector.
Shane Mann, awards organiser and managing director of FE Week publisher Lsect, said: “The quality of the overwhelming number of applications from across the sector was, as always, very high.
“But tonight’s awards recognised and celebrated the very best work by apprentice employers and providers.
“I would like to congratulate all the winners and thank our amazing judging panel, sponsors and partners. We couldn’t have done it without them.”
Association of Employment and Learning Providers chief executive Jane Hickie, who co-hosted the event, said in this “extraordinary year,” she liked to think: “Our award winners have all been beacons of best practice throughout the pandemic.
“Means of training delivery have had to change, often with limited or no additional funding support, and yet we have a new generation of apprentices stepping into the skilled vacancies that employers are keen to fill.
“In my view, this year’s winners are truly exceptional.”
