The event will also culminate in the two overall awards of Apprenticeship Employer of the Year, sponsored by Yamazaki Mazak UK Ltd and Apprentice of the Year, sponsored by Worcester Bosch Group recognizing outstanding achievement.
Ping Marketing has been nominated as a finalist for the Newcomer Apprenticeship Employer of the year, sponsored by The Community Housing Group.
Gary Woodman, Chief Executive of Worcestershire Local Enterprise Partnership, said: “To reach the finals of the awards is an incredible achievement and highlights the outstanding ability and dedication of our local apprentices, employers, schools and training providers. I look forward to celebrating these achievements at the awards and I would urge all interested parties to book their place at the event as soon as possible.”
Cllr Marcus Hart, Cabinet Member with responsibility for Education and Skills at Worcestershire County Council, added: “My congratulations go to everyone who has been shortlisted for the Worcestershire Apprenticeship Awards final. The fantastic quality of this year’s entries and nominations highlights the hugely positive impact that apprenticeships have for the growth of apprentices and businesses all over the county.”
Ping started the apprenticeship journey in November last year with George. Being a small business based in the Vale of Evesham, taking on our first ever apprentice was a big commitment, like with any new employee. However, George bought his keen interest in marketing, social media and customer service to Ping as well as understanding our clients’ needs and managing various marketing campaigns.
George was introduced to us by 3aaa Apprenticeships and quickly became an integral part of our team, allowing us to increase our customer base and even offer some additional services to our clients.
We are looking forward to meeting other businesses and their teams on Thursday evening.
Good luck to all finalists.
