Workforce Development Awards 2010
The National Employer Service has announced the winners of the 2010 Workforce Development Awards.
The Awards, which were hosted by BBC Working Lunch's Naga Munchetty, attracted several hundred entries and the final twelve beat strong competition to be recognised for the training they offer their people.
Speaking at the Awards ceremony on 25 May at Shakespeare's Globe in London, Geoff Russell, chief executive of the Skills Funding Agency, praised the commitment and foresight of business leaders in developing the skills of the future workforce.
He said, "The fact that some of the country's largest and most successful employers recognise the value of investing in training their employees speaks volumes, and I commend their achievements. But whatever their company size, from FTSE 100s to small and medium sized companies, skills training needs to be a priority for every employer to help them be as competitive as possible."
The Workforce Development Awards are held by the National Employer Service, part of the Skills Funding Agency, to recognise employers who have developed innovative training programmes and learners who have excelled in work-based learning.
The winners of the Workforce Development Awards included:
The awards were sponsored by BT, Campus Veolia, City & Guilds, Edexcel, EDI and Wincanton.
Hilary Chadwick, director, National Employer Service, said: "We've been delighted by the quality of this year's entries, they really highlight the achievements of learners, employers and government working together to develop the skills that underpin our economy."
