Ginger Nut was one of the winners at the east of England regional final of the National Apprenticeship Awards 2017.

The Awards, now in their fourteenth year, are run by the National Apprenticeship Service and recognise excellence in two areas: businesses that grow their own talent with apprentices and apprentices who have made a significant contribution to their workplaces.

This is the third time that Ginger Nut has been recognised in these prestigious awards.

On being announced as winning SME of the Year, Phil Warnock (director) said:

“We are very proud to be recognised during this year’s National Apprenticeship Service Awards for our continued dedication to developing young people through the apprenticeship scheme.  But more importantly, we are proud to play our part in enabling young people to achieve their potential; creating a highly skilled, creative and flexible workforce capable of keeping the company at the forefront of the digital marketing sector. 

A culture of learning from the top down ensures apprentices actively contribute of company performance, have opportunities for career progression and act as ambassadors for the apprenticeship scheme.  We value the contribution apprentices make to our company and we would not be where we are today without them.

They are not only our apprentices, but our future leaders and we remain utterly committed to using the apprenticeship scheme in order to develop our staff whilst widening access into education and employment for the future generation of digital marketers.

It is from this passion for apprenticeships that we launched Ginger Nut Training.  We now work with employers across the region to train their staff, creating the future generation of apprentices.”

Sue Husband, Director of the National Apprenticeship Service, said:

“The National Apprenticeship Awards allow talented apprentices and committed employers from across our regions to receive well-deserved recognition for their apprenticeship achievements.

“Winners recognised at these awards show the range of sectors and variety of job roles apprenticeships are available in, and how they can deliver the skills employers need. I congratulate all winners on their success so far and the very best of luck in the next stage of the competition.”
