Sponsors of Sheffield City Region Apprenticeship Awards encourage nominations
The closing date to enter this year’s Sheffield City Region Apprenticeship Awards is fast approaching – Is there anyone you think deserves to be recognised for their work.
NOCN sponsors the Training Provide / Programme of the Year Award at this year’s ceremony, which will take place in September 2021.
To win this award, entries should show how their organisation effectively works with a range of employers to offer quality training courses and demonstrate ways in which apprentices can gain qualifications and develop skills through their schemes.
In 2019 Sheffield City Council were crowned winners – the council actively engages with individuals who are not in employment known as NEET and help individuals become self-supportive contributors to the local economy.
They said that the rising number of apprentices is helping to shape a workforce reflective of Sheffield’s increasingly diverse population.
NOCN Group is a progressive educational charity established in 1987 to help people get into work and develop themselves by working with employers, training providers and individuals.
The Group is made up of leading learning and development organisations specialising in areas including the design and delivery of vocational qualifications, apprenticeship End Point Assessment, Access to Higher Education, construction sector skills, and international education and skills consultancy.
Sponsors of the Mentor of the Year Sheffield Hallam University would like to encourage employers to nominate employees that have mentored others within their organisation.
They work with a wide range of employers and professional bodies to develop and deliver apprenticeship programmes to meet the needs of the industry - they currently have over 1,200 people enrolled on apprenticeships.
Mentors can be the line manager or someone within the organisation that has contributed to the individual’s development.
Mentors will have had a positive impact on the personal and professional development of the apprentice and, therefore, a great accolade to the apprenticeship programme.
In 2019 Mark Willis was crowned winner of this award; Mark from ESC Global had been with the company for three years and was an excellent mentor and role model.
There are 13 categories available to enter, but be quick to register as the closing date is approaching.
Make sure your entry is in before June 30 to stand a chance of being crowned one of the 2021 winners.
