The Lincolnshire Apprenticeship Champion Award acknowledges and celebrates the efforts and commitment of apprentices, apprenticeship training providers and employers who have gone above and beyond to make apprenticeships a success. Grantham College was thrilled to learn that it had won this award at the ceremony in Lincoln.
The awards are run in partnership between the Public Service Compact group, Lincolnshire County Council and the Greater Lincolnshire Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP).
Grantham College’s winning entry showed its commitment to designing and delivering high quality apprenticeships that meet both employer and apprentices’ needs. This includes working with the local community and listening to our employers then working with them to find solutions to issues and develop the curriculum accordingly.
Judges praised Grantham College for encouraging young people in their apprenticeship and supporting them to produce work to the highest standard.
Apprentice Jack Perry who works for South Kesteven District Council and is undertaking his apprenticeship at Grantham College stated that “I have always had a positive experience at Grantham College and I feel they deserve this award for the amazing work they do for apprentices.”
Congratulations to our Apprentices Alice Heaton and Charlie Tatchell who were both finalists for the Lincolnshire Apprenticeship Champion Award 2023. The Apprenticeship Champion Finalists have demonstrated their commitment to overcoming barriers, excellence in skills development and their drive to support success and growth in what has been a challenging year.
James Laurie, Managing Director at JRL Brickwork said “Alice is an incredibly hard working, driven and talented young lady with very much a “can do” attitude – all of which makes me confident in the fact she has a very prosperous future ahead of her.”
Richard Favell, Lecturer at Grantham College said “Charlie’s attitude towards his work is unfailingly professional, he leads by example and when working alone his work never needs to be supervised. He has gained respect from his peers and college lecturer with ease.”
Congratulations to all the finalists and winners.
