The Business Development Manager of The Heart of Worcestershire College, Emily Leleu, said;

“We are delighted that Green Lighting Limited have received national recognition for their investment of time and expertise in supporting the apprenticeship agenda within their company.

Sue Husband, Director of the National Apprenticeship Service commented on Green Lighting Ltd. being named a Top 100 Apprenticeship Employer:

“The Top 100 Apprenticeship Employer list 2015 demonstrates clearly the impact apprentices can have on an organisation.

“These Top 100 apprenticeship employers have made a difference to the lives of young people by investing in their future whilst apprentices themselves help employers to develop a skilled, qualified workforce that builds a stronger economy. Apprentice employers are creating opportunities for young people to gain the skills and knowledge they need to succeed, in some cases up to degree level, while working and earning.

“I hope that the success of these Top 100 Apprenticeship Employers will encourage more businesses across England to follow their example and find out how apprenticeships can help grow a skilled and highly qualified workforce.”

 

Chris Jones, Chief Executive of the City & Guilds Group, said:

“High quality apprenticeship programmes can help individuals gain the skills they need to progress. And for employers, apprenticeships play a crucial role in developing a skilled workforce. These Top 100 Apprenticeship Employers have experienced these benefits first-hand; I hope other employers are motivated to follow in their footsteps.”
