The Landscape Group has been highly commended at the West Midlands final of the National Apprenticeship Awards 2015.
The Awards, now in their twelfth year, are run by the National Apprenticeship Service and recognise excellence in two areas: businesses that grow their own talent with apprentices and apprentices who have made a significant contribution to their workplaces.
The regional winners and highly commended entries were announced at a high profile awards ceremony on 8th October 2015 at Edgbaston Cricket Ground, Birmingham.
The Landscape Group were highly commended in the Award for Large Employer of the Year sponsored by BAE Systems.
Sue Husband, Director of the National Apprenticeship Service, said:
“Apprenticeships deliver for businesses, individuals and the economy. They enable people to gain the skills and knowledge they need to succeed, in some cases up to degree level, while working and earning. And for businesses, hiring apprentices is a productive and effective way for them to grow their own talent by developing a motivated, skilled and qualified workforce.
“The National Apprenticeship Awards enable talented apprentices and committed employers to receive the recognition they richly deserve. They not only help celebrate the achievements of apprentices and businesses, allowing them to gain the credit for investing in their own futures, but they drive up quality and encourage others to get involved.
The Landscape Group has been highly commended in BAE Systems Award for Large Employer of the Year in the West Midlands and I would like to congratulate them on their achievement. They deserve to be rewarded for their efforts. There has never been a better time to become an apprentice or employ one.”
