Inspiring Business by Sharing Success

Successful Awards Ceremony for leading Nottinghamshire Apprentices

Nottingham based training provider, CT Skills hosted their first apprenticeship awards ceremony presented by Nottingham City Councillor Georgia Power on Friday 9th March.

In celebration of National Apprenticeship Week, the ‘Made in the Midlands’ themed awards received over 50 nominations from local employers including J Tomlinson, Bridge & Stitch and Trent Barton Buses, with managers all keen to nominate their current apprentices by sharing success stories.


An expert panel of judges narrowed down the best entries to 18 finalists and 5 overall winners, with each winner being selected for an award category under the CT Skills core values; Pride, Respect, Accountability, Integrity and Service Excellence.


Respect Award Winner, Chester Ashford who is undertaking a Level 3 School Sport apprenticeship at The Carlton Academy said;

“I believe I am the perfect fit for this award because I have given it my all so far and will continue to do so. My apprenticeship has inspired me to develop from a part-time football coach to a full-time teacher in order to shape the future generations and their attitudes towards sport and education.”


Councillor Georgia Power commented on the success of the awards;

“I was extremely delighted to present the awards on behalf of CT Skills. The award winners and finalists are very passionate about their apprenticeships and it is great to see what an impact they are making to companies across Nottingham.”


The awards also coincided with the ‘Made in the Midlands’ Apprenticeship Forum which offered support and guidance for keen individuals looking for an apprenticeship within Nottingham. The forum included a variety of workshops such as a meet and greet with local employers, discussion with live apprentices and a C.V workshop where individuals gained advice from C.V experts.
