Aspiration Training recognised as national awards finalist in Houses of Parliament
Finalists for AAC Apprenticeship Awards 2019 celebrated in Parliament
The national finalists of the AAC Apprenticeship Awards 2019 were recognised and celebrated at a special reception at the Houses of Parliament today. Aspiration Training were amongst the forty-four organisations and individuals who have been shortlisted in 22 categories after more than 350 entries were submitted. Aspiration Training have been shortlisted as one of two finalists in the ‘Education and Childcare Provider of the Year’ category.
Around 150 people packed into the Terrace Pavilion for the event, which also coincided with the start of the 12th annual National Apprenticeship Week.
The awards event was sponsored by the chair of the education select committee Robert Halfon, who received last year’s Lifetime Achievement Award.
Addressing the finalists, he said:
There’s a massive amount of work to be done and policy changes to be had but having an event like this isn’t just a nice event in the Houses of Commons, it is unbelievably important for apprenticeships.
What this does is say we believe in the prestige of apprenticeships in our country. We want to build a skills nation and make sure every young person can climb the education and skills ladder of opportunity.
All the award nominees are change makers, so thank you to all the providers and organisations who are here today.
Winners of all awards will be announced at a glittering ceremony during the Annual Apprenticeship Conference Gala Dinner on March 3 at the ICC in Birmingham.
