Colleges combine to urge Bath bosses to use apprentices
A partnership flying the flag for apprenticeships in Bath has given its support to new awards.
Apprenticeship B&NES has signed up to sponsor The Bath Chronicle/Somerset Guardian Apprenticeships Awards. The organisation will be sponsoring the Apprenticeship Development Award Category, which looks to celebrate employers that demonstrate a real commitment to training and personal development through apprenticeships.
Apprenticeship B&NES is a new partnership between City of Bath College and Norton Radstock College to encourage more employers to take on apprentices.
The colleges work together to ensure that young people and their employers can draw from a greater pool of expertise.

Work-based learning manager at Apprenticeship B&NES, Barney Willis, said: "As the largest training provider locally we have seen countless benefits of apprenticeships and know just how many doors to career paths they can open. With over 180 different apprenticeship frameworks available across 80 different industry sectors, there's always a place for an apprentice in every organisation.
"This is why we have chosen to sponsor the Apprenticeship Development Award; to celebrate employers that not only engage with apprenticeships but provide ongoing support year after year to introduce new talent and train young people to become our leaders and entrepreneurs of the future.
"Apprenticeships play a crucial element in the success of businesses and make a significant contribution to the economy. In this category we are hoping to hear about those businesses who can demonstrate their commitment and investment to the apprenticeship programme."
Bath MP Don Foster said apprentices were important for the economy.
He said: "Apprenticeships are an excellent way for young people to get the skills and experience necessary for a lifetime of successful work."
