Apprentices and Employers Celebrate Awards Success

Posted: 2nd February 2015

Apprentices and Employers have been rewarded for their achievements at the annual Doncaster College and University Centre Apprenticeship Awards, held at the College’s Waterfront campus.

The awards are designed to acknowledge and celebrate apprentices’ and employers exceptional contributions to their workplace.

Entries were judged and measured against criteria for six apprentice categories and two employer categories, each sponsored by a Doncaster business.

The winners listed below were welcomed with their friends and families to musical entertainment by ‘Side Keys and Co’ followed by a presentation of the awards on stage.  The evening concluded with food served in the College’s Waterfront Restaurant.

The College works with more than 700 different employers across South Yorkshire and last year achieved over 1000 employed apprentices across a whole range of occupational areas including engineering, motor vehicle, construction, hairdressing, business administration and accountancy.

Doncaster College is a sponsor of the National Apprenticeship Service Greater Together Campaign.  By working together we are aiming to encourage as many Yorkshire and the Humber businesses as possible to recruit as many apprentices as possible before the 27 March 2015.
