THE CHASE is up for School of the Year at the 2014 Worcestershire Apprenticeship Awards.
The Geraldine Road based school will be up against South Bromsgrove High School when the winners are announced at a ceremony hosted by The Apprentice’s Nick Hewer at the end of November.
The awards recognise the county’s best apprentices as well as the employers and schools which do so much to accommodate them.
Nick Hewer said: “I firmly believe that apprenticeships offer a great start for young people, providing them with the skills, experience and knowledge they need for their future careers.
“It will be a pleasure to host the Worcestershire Apprenticeship Awards and to celebrate all the great achievements being made by young people, businesses and training providers alike.”
There will be 11 other categories contested on the night held at West Midlands Safari Park on Thursday, November 27.
Prizes will be handed out to the best Intermediate, Advanced and High Level apprentices, the best small and medium employers as well as newcomer employer.
Additional awards will be Pre Apprentice of the Year and a Lifetime Achievement Award.
Gary Woodman, executive director of Worcestershire LEP, added: “There are many exemplary apprenticeship schemes being run throughout the county and the awards are a perfect opportunity to reward apprentices and employers and emphasise apprenticeships as a valuable and fruitful career option.”
