Following on from their success at the Midlands Regional Finals in October where they were named as Medium Employer of the Year, Derry Building Services has been recognised in the prestigious Centrica Top 100 Apprenticeship Employer list. This list 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 20th January at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London.
After a touch selection process the most exceptional apprenticeship employers from all of the 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;
“The Top 100 Apprenticeship Employer list 2016 demonstrates clearly the impact apprentices can have on an organisation. Apprentice employers are creating opportunities for individuals to gain the skills and knowledge needed to succeed, while working and earning.
These Top 100 Apprenticeship Employers are making a difference to the lives of their apprentices by investing in their future. In return, apprentices are helping employers to develop a skilled, qualified workforce to build a stronger economy.
I hope the success of these Top 100 Apprenticeship Employers will mean more businesses across England aspire to follow their example and to find out for themselves how apprenticeships help to grow a skilled and highly qualified workforce.”
