Lib Dem Stockport wins apprenticeship award

by Iain Roberts on 20 September, 2014

Lib Dem-led Stockport Council has won a coveted national apprenticeship award for the Council’s work employing apprentices.

The Council won the National Apprenticeship Service’s North West – Greater Manchester, Cheshire and Staffordshire – Regional Award for Macro Employer (over 4,999 employees) of apprentices.

The award recognises the Council’s achievements of employing apprentices at Levels 2-5, in Business Administration, Management, Creative Design and Digital Media, Customer Service, and Supporting Teaching and Learning.

Councillor Shan Alexander, Stockport Council’s Executive Member for Lifelong Leaning and Achievement, said: “The Council is proud of its track record on apprenticeships and I’m delighted that we have won this award for the second time. It is good to be recognised for excelling in this work in the Greater Manchester and surrounding region.”

The Lib Dems in Government have created far more apprenticeships than the previous government, and Stockport Lib Dems are proud to be playing our part in the Lib Dem apprenticeship revolution.

    Congratulations on the award. My Grandaughter was fortunate enough to be taken on as an apprentice at Stockport Academy which has resulted in a permanent job for her.
    Thank you for making these apprenticeships possible. I feel this is the real answer to creating employment for young people.
