Successes of Local Apprentices

Scotland’s annual Apprenticeship Awards are fast approaching and I’m delighted to learn about finalists that have been shortlisted in my region of South Scotland.

The awards will take place at Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum in Glasgow on 16th November. This is the 16th year of the Awards, organised by Skills Development Scotland (SDS).

The Awards demonstrate the importance that work-based learning makes to individuals, businesses and the Scottish economy. They have attracted a record breaking number of entries this year, with entries highlighting the outstanding commitment shown by apprentices and employers, family firms and national companies.

  • Ayrshire firm Braehead Foods has been chosen as one of the contenders in the Promoting Diversity Employer of the Year category. The Kilmarnock company has taken positive steps to promote equality and diversity across the business.
  • Spirit AeroSystems engineer Anna Manson is hoping for a win in the Apprentice Ambassador category. Monkton-based Anna helped raise awareness of apprenticeships during Scottish Apprenticeship Week in March.
  • Forestry company, BSW Timber Group, based in Earlston, has been chosen as one of the contenders in the Large Employer of the Year category of the Awards

Good luck to each of them!
