CILT(UK) has been awarded the Small Employer of the Year Award at the East Midlands Apprenticeship Awards which were held at the East Midlands Conference Centre in Nottingham on May 20th 2008.
The Awards, which were hosted by the Learning and Skills Council (LSC), celebrate the achievements of young people and employers involved in Apprenticeships. CILT(UK) was recognised for implementing Apprenticeships as part of their strategic development to provide the Institute with talented staff that have a broad level of knowledge about their work across all departments.
Lesley Parker, Professional Development Manager said: 'The Employer of the Year Award is designed to acknowledge and celebrate employers' commitment to developing their workforce through Apprenticeships and the achievement of this Award clearly demonstrates how well our Apprenticeship programme is working.'
The National Awards are scheduled to be held in July and the winners will be selected from the regional finalists.
