Knowsley to host second Apprenticeship Awards
The Apprenticeship Awards (Greater Merseyside) returns for its second year on the 20th of June 2014.
Taking place in an exquisite marquee situated in Lord Derby’s estate in the borough of Knowsley, the awards will once again recognise the achievements of Merseyside apprentices.
The first Apprenticeship Awards took place last year with a fantastic inaugural ceremony at St George’s Hall in early 2013 and the event is set to be even bigger this year.
The awards ceremony, which celebrates the region’s most promising apprentices along with the most committed employers, will be coinciding with the Liverpool International Festival for Business in June.
Greater Merseyside Learning Providers Federation (GMLPF) will be the main sponsor of the event for the second year running and continue to help establish the Apprenticeship Awards (Greater Merseyside) as a key date in Liverpool’s commercial calendar.
Debbie Tagoe, chair of GMLPF, says: “The awards are a very important event for our region as they bring the local community together and allow us to celebrate the hardworking, high achieving individuals in our area.
The awards, which are driven by local providers and employers, also recognise the dedicated employers who train our region’s talented apprentices.”
Patrick McCarten, head of employment and skills at Knowsley Metropolitan Borough Council, says: “The Liverpool City Region Apprenticeship Hub is proud that this year’s apprenticeship awards are being held in Knowsley in June.
“This is the second year of the event and promises to be even bigger and better than last year.”
