Babington sponsored the Creative, Media and Digital Technology Skills category at the Skills for Business Awards 2016 in Lancashire last week.
Four businesses were shortlisted, with Babington’s Operations Manager Sue Harvey presenting the award to category winner Dreamr.
The event was organised in partnership with awarding body Pearson, the Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce, and the Greater Manchester Learning Provider Network.
During the months leading up to the awards ceremony, businesses and individuals nominated their favourites for the 21 categories, and shortlisted candidates were finally announced on the night.
The Skills for Business Awards is in its 3rd year and is the perfect platform for celebrating businesses that have invested in the development of their people, learning providers that have delivered high-quality training, and individuals who have honed their skills and excelled as a result of the training they have received.
Employer Eat Pennines won the Entrepreneur Award for work with young people from challenging backgrounds on traineeships delivered by Babington, as well as the Hospitality and Tourism Award for work with Babington hospitality trainees. The company was also shortlisted alongside Babington for the Collaboration Award.
Babington health and social care apprentice Maggie Ward was a finalist in the Intermediate Apprentice of the Year category, recognised for her outstanding contribution to employer Archmoor Care Home.
The event was a wonderful opportunity for some of our most impressive employers and learners to receive recognition for their hard work.
