The national finalists of the AAC Apprenticeship Awards 2019 have been unveiled.

We are delighted that Haddon Training are finalists in the Agriculture, Environmental and Animal Care Apprenticeship Provider of the Year category for the prestigious AAC Apprenticeship Awards 2019.

More than 350 entries were submitted from colleges, training providers and employers for the awards, which are in their second year and run by FE Week and the Association of Education and Learning Providers.

The former will celebrate excellence in 13 individual apprenticeship routes, and winners will be named ‘apprenticeship provider of the year’.

Winners of all awards will be announced at a glittering ceremony during the Annual Apprenticeship Conference Gala Dinner on March 28 at the ICC in Birmingham.

Those shortlisted will also be invited to attend special reception at the Houses of Parliament, hosted by Commons education select committee chair Robert Halfon, on March 4.

Managing director of FE Week publisher Lsect, and chair of the judging panel, Shane Mann, said: “These awards are a brilliant opportunity to demonstrate and celebrate the importance of apprenticeships in England and the incredible hard work that employers, providers and individuals put into them.

“The volume of entries we’ve received in our second year has been overwhelming and showcases just how much talent there is in the sector.

“We’d like to thank everyone who submitted a nomination and our judges for their time and consideration. I look forward to kicking off the celebrations at our parliamentary reception at the start of National Apprenticeship Week in March.”

AELP chief executive Mark Dawe said: “As this year’s array of finalists demonstrates, the fantastic training being delivered to young people and to existing employees who need to enhance their skills in the face of current economic uncertainty never ceases to amaze me.”
