Skills for Care say Barchester Healthcare winning major apprenticeship award is a 'breakthrough' for the sector

 

Skills for Care say Barchester Healthcare beating the Army and Navy to win Macro Apprentice Employer of the Year at the Workforce Development Awards is a major breakthrough for the adult social care sector. Barchester beat off stiff competition from the Armed Forces at the awards event organised by the National Employer Service to scoop the award for employers with more than 5,000 employees rewarding their innovative work offering a wide range of apprenticeships to their staff who provide adult social care services. It was an outstanding night for Barchester as they also picked up the award for Supporting Young Talent beating entries from BAE Systems, British Gas and Toni and Guy. Barchester completed a hat-trick of wins picking up the Integrating Employment and Skills Category beating off a strong entry from McDonald's Restaurants. The Workforce Development awards are convened annually by the National Employer Service to celebrate the best in training by recognising employers who have developed innovative training programmes and learners who have excelled in work-based learning. "Barchester Healthcare have been one of the pioneers in offering apprenticeships to adult social care staff so for them to win this prestigious national award is not only a huge honour for them but is a major breakthrough for all employers who support apprentices in our sector." says Skills for Care Chair Professor David Croisdale-Appleby. "We are seeing record numbers of apprentices joining our sector because adult social care is a very good fit for apprenticeships leading to long-term careers so we are absolutely delighted for Barchester Healthcare who have a long standing commitment to offering innovative and practical apprenticeship programmes to their staff." Barchester Healthcare will now automatically go through to a judging panel for theNational Apprenticeship Awards on 15 July in London.
