National award success for Myerscough’s apprenticeship provision
- Wednesday 23 Mar 2022
Myerscough College’s apprenticeship provision has again achieved national recognition at the annual AAC Apprenticeship Awards.
Myerscough was named the Agriculture, Environmental and Animal Care Apprenticeship Provider of the Year category, defending the title the College won in 2021.
Myerscough was also shortlisted in the category of overall national Apprenticeship Provider of the Year.
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.
From a record-breaking 370 awards entries, judges have selected 24 award winners and 12 highly commended recipients. Categories included awards for diversity in apprenticeships, SEND apprenticeships, campaigns that promote apprenticeships as well as 15 sector-specific awards.
Shane Mann, managing director of FE Week’s publisher Lsect and AAC awards co-host, said: “Tonight we’ve proved that there is so much to celebrate in the apprenticeships sector.
“The providers, employers and individuals we’ve recognised tonight represent the innovators, risk-takers and pioneers that are not only doing amazing things for apprentices, but are also proving that apprenticeships are a first-rate pathway through education.
“Congratulations to all the winners and thank our team of amazing judges, sponsors and partners. We couldn’t have done it without them.”
Also co-hosting the awards ceremony was AELP chief executive Jane Hickie.
“The AAC apprenticeship awards are a highlight of the conference every year – and it’s great that AELP and FE Week have been able to work together to put this event on once again.
“I would like to send congratulations to all the finalists but especially to the winners. The last 12 months have been tough for many apprenticeship providers as we have come out of the pandemic, so it’s even more remarkable that the entrants were so strong this year,” she said.
