Electrical contractors highly commended at National Apprenticeship Awards 2017

National electrical contractor Clarkson Evans has been highly commended at the South West 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.

Lindsey Young, Clarkson Evans’ human resources and training director, said: "We are proud of our apprenticeship training and are thrilled that it has been recognised by the National Apprenticeship Service (NSA). This commendation follows our Princess Royal Training Award earlier in the year.

"All apprentice employers want to attract the best possible candidates and our latest award provides further external endorsement of the excellent training we provide."

This is the third time in Clarkson Evans’ history the Staverton-based business has received formal recognition in the National Apprenticeship Awards.

Sue Husband, director of the NSA, said: “The National Apprenticeship Awards allow talented apprentices and committed employers from across our regions to receive well-deserved recognition for their apprenticeship achievements.

“The highly commended finalists 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 highly commended finalists on their success in this competition.”
