Our first round of Apprentice of the Quarter awards will take place in our London, Birmingham, Manchester, Liverpool and Online study centres. Apprentices throughout the UK can look forward to the award expanding to other local study centres later in 2024.
Why are we introducing Apprentice of the Quarter?
We would like to show our apprentices that their efforts are valued and acknowledged. Even if exams aren’t something that comes as easily to some as they do to others, it’s important to recognise hard work. We intend to do this by taking into account the apprenticeship requirements of their skills scan. This enables them to gain valuable work experience ‘on the job’ whilst also studying for their Professional Qualification. This adds value to both the apprentice and the employer. It will hopefully help to inspire and motivate learners.
What do we want to celebrate with the Apprentice of the Quarter awards?
We would like to recognise the perseverance of learners who find exam sittings particularly challenging, as well as the progression of the skills and behaviours they are developing throughout their programme. Factors such as achieving consistent timely objective deadlines and exceptional submission evidence will be taken into account for nominations. It is an opportunity to celebrate the hard work and effort our apprentices are putting in.
The value of apprenticeships to employers and learners
Apprenticeships are a fantastic way for people to progress with their career paths whilst learning valuable workplace skills and still earning a salary. Even better still, the employer gains capable, qualified members of staff. It’s an absolute pleasure to be a part of this journey and to assist people in furthering their education. We have a wonderful ‘feel good’ sensation from supporting these people every day as part of our jobs, so this is a perfect opportunity to acknowledge, celebrate and motivate our learners.
