The Landscape Group has been recognised in the prestigious Top 100 Apprenticeship Employer list, sponsored by City & Guilds, which is compiled annually by the National Apprenticeship Service and recognises excellence in businesses that employ apprentices.
The list was announced at the National Apprenticeship Awards, which took place on 26th January 2016 at the Grosvenor House, A JW Marriott Hotel, London.
After a tough selection process the most exceptional apprenticeship employers from all National Apprenticeship Awards employer categories went forward to feature in the list, which showcases the breadth of employers who now offer apprenticeships.
Sue Husband, Director of the National Apprenticeship Service commented on The Landscape Group being named a Top 100 Apprenticeship Employer:
“The Top 100 Apprenticeship Employer list 2015 demonstrates clearly the impact apprentices can have on an organisation.
“These Top 100 apprenticeship employers have made a difference to the lives of young people by investing in their future whilst apprentices themselves help employers to develop a skilled, qualified workforce that builds a stronger economy. Apprentice employers are creating opportunities for young people to gain the skills and knowledge they need to succeed, in some cases up to degree level, while working and earning.
“I hope that the success of these Top 100 Apprenticeship Employers will encourage more businesses across England to follow their example and find out how apprenticeships can help grow a skilled and highly qualified workforce.”
Chris Jones, Chief Executive of the City & Guilds Group, said:
“High quality apprenticeship programmes can help individuals gain the skills they need to progress. And for employers, apprenticeships play a crucial role in developing a skilled workforce. These Top 100 Apprenticeship Employers have experienced these benefits first-hand; I hope other employers are motivated to follow in their footsteps.”
