We’re delighted to announce that we have once again been nominated for Small Apprenticeship Employer of the Year at the Worcestershire Apprenticeship Awards!
Also, congratulations to Lauren Baker at Green Lighting Ltd, based in Worcester, who has also been nominated for Advanced Apprentice of the Year.
Lauren, 21, who is currently the Business Development & Marketing Coordinator at Green Lighting Ltd, was runner up in last year’s National Apprenticeship Awards in the region for, The West Midlands award for the EAL Advanced Apprentice of the Year.
On being nominated, Anthony Ottway, Managing Director said:
“Initially we were one of the first companies in Worcester to recruit staff through the Apprenticeship programme. Primarily, the staff we recruited through the programme were school leavers, however, we now ensure that every member of staff is offered a form of training.
The future is to continue with each staff member on an apprenticeship, to ensure that each reaches the highest level of education that they are able to. Investing in the apprenticeship programme has offered us the support we needed to develop our staff and grow our business.
Green Lighting Ltd has been nominated in recognition of the contribution that the company has made to the apprenticeship programme.”
On being nominated, Lauren said:
“Since commencing my apprenticeship, my self-belief and confidence have grown and I feel able to show initiative in the business environment. I have had to develop my team player skills, yet be capable of working independently and effectively prioritise multiple concurrent projects. Starting with the Level 3 Apprenticeship and progressing on to the Level 4 has enabled me to enjoy learning again and reawaken my desire to get a degree. I feel proud that I am making an impact in my role within the business. I love my job and want to keep progressing in the company. The apprenticeship programme has opened up a whole new way of life for me, I am earning a good salary for someone my age and am able to realise my potential to increase this through training and education.”
