Having celebrated the Work & Training Awards annually since 1999, this year was slightly different than our usual event, but none the less a very important occasion as we celebrated the achievements of all of Work & Training’s students, apprentices and trainees.
On the 18th November 2020, we held a virtual event via Zoom and presented to just a few of the many people that have completed qualifications in the past year, employed as an apprentice or trainee or enrolled as a student with our training division. Event Programme
