We first employed an apprentice about two years ago because we were looking for young talent to build our team. Receiving this award is fantastic, as it confirms our belief in supporting and employing apprentices and it proves that they are a valuable asset in helping businesses grow. The timing of this award couldn’t have been better as we are welcoming another apprentice to the Napier team this month.”

Sue Husband, Director of the National Apprenticeship Service said, “The National Apprenticeship Awards enable exceptional apprentices and dedicated employers to receive the recognition they richly deserve. Apprenticeships enable people to gain the skills and knowledge they need to succeed – in some cases up to degree level; and for businesses to grow the talent they need.”
