Puffins up for National Apprenticeship Award

Puffins Childcare is delighted that it has reached the South West final of the National Apprenticeship Awards. The 2017 awards, run by the National Apprenticeship Service and now in their 14th year, recognise excellent businesses that grow their own talent with apprenticeships and apprentices who have made a significant contribution to their workplaces.

Rosalind Taylor, Director of Puffins, says: “Our staff are the backbone of our organisation, and ongoing training and development is key to supporting them and raising the quality of our nurseries. Our apprenticeship programmes provide excellent training for new and existing staff”.

Winners and highly commended entries from all regions across England will be announced at one of 6 celebration events held across the country this autumn. After the regional ceremonies, winners will progress to the next stage of the competition, where their applications will be assessed by a national judging panel. National finalists will be announced in December and will be invited to a national, final ceremony on 18 January 2018 at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London.apprentice photo for awards (002)
