Town MP calls on Haverhill to support Apprentice Awards
26 October 2016
Haverhill’s MP Matt Hancock has urged businesses and individuals to help celebrate apprenticeships in the town at a special awards ceremony.
The ONE Haverhill Partnership Apprenticeship Awards will be held on Friday 18th November as a way of showcasing the importance of apprentices in Haverhill.
The deadline for applications is Friday 4th November and Mr Hancock, guest of honour at the awards ceremony which is sponsored by Sanofi, believes it is a great way to pay tribute to young people in the town.
Mr Hancock, West Suffolk MP, said:
“I congratulate ONE Haverhill Partnership for the work they have done in recent years to both promote and place so many apprentices across the town.
“I know what a difference apprentices can make to a local business. I have been working with apprentices in my Westminster office for five years and they are an essential part of my team.
“I urge businesses to put forward their apprentices for these fantastic awards and I look forward to joining ONE Haverhill Partnership in celebrating their achievements.”
There are five awards, which all celebrate the success and the achievements of those undertaking an apprenticeship and the Haverhill companies who invest in apprentices.
Applications are wanted for Apprentice of the Year, Apprenticeship Employer of the Year, Overcoming Adversity Awards, Apprentice Champion of the Year and Highly Commended Award.
The closing date for applications is Friday 4th November with a judging panel then deciding on the winners ahead of the awards ceremony which takes place at 3pm on Friday 18th November at Sanofi.
The Apprenticeship Awards was organised by ONE Haverhill Partnership for the first time last year as part of their continuing drive to improve employment opportunities for young people in the town.
“The Apprenticeship Awards are a great way to celebrate the achievements of apprentices living and working in town.
“I would like to thank Matt Hancock for supporting and attending this year’s awards – and would join him in calling for businesses and individuals to apply before the deadline of Friday 4th November.
“More than 70 apprentices have found work in Haverhill since ONE Haverhill Partnership got involved and are contributing to business life here in the town. This is a great opportunity to mark their achievements.”
