APSE is delighted to announce the winners of the Housing and Building Apprentice Awards 2017. The prestigious awards celebrate the progress and achievements of the best apprentices in local authorities across the UK.
One of APSE’s most competitive awards, the finalists are excellent representatives of their trade and their council. Their hard work and dedication has shown through the extremely high standard of submissions that APSE received, and all the finalists should feel proud of their achievements.
Vickie Hacking, APSE Principal Advisor, said, ‘‘I am delighted to be involved in this year’s Apprentice Awards. The Awards allow APSE to publicly recognise and honour the commitment that these apprentices show towards their work, as well as the undeniably excellent contribution they make towards local council frontline services. The awards also highlight councils as excellent places for young people to begin and develop their careers.”
APSE Chief Executive Paul O’Brien said, “The work of these apprentices underlines how important apprenticeship schemes are and how much local councils can gain from participating in them. All of our finalists are shining examples of excellence in local government frontline services and should be extremely proud of their achievements. With the support of innovative councils who value workforce development, I have no doubt that each finalist has a bright future ahead.”
