We win Best Larger Employer Award at Coventry City College’s Apprenticeship Awards
We have won the Best Larger Employer award at Coventry City College’s annual Apprenticeship Awards.
The awards are held to recognise students and individuals who have gone above and beyond and also recognise employers who have supported students at the college.
We have worked with Coventry College over a number of years and in that time we have taken on apprentices, attended career events, provided work experience placements and have chatted to students about opportunities at Citizen.
Our Head of Learning and Development Lisa Robertson said: “We are thrilled to have won this award and it came as a complete surprise because we didn’t submit an entry for it. The college wanted to recognise the work that Citizen has done to support them and their students.
“I am so proud we have won this – we were only one of two employers who were presented with awards on the night. The other winner was for the Best Smaller Employer award.
“I appreciate the support of all the apprentice supervisors, line managers and the HR team who support our apprenticeship programme including apprentices from other colleges. Without their support in training and supporting our apprentices we wouldn’t have a scheme.
“Well done and congratulations to everyone involved!”
We have students completing Apprenticeships with Coventry College in Business Administration, Carpentry and Plumbing and have recently supported an Electrical work experience placement.
Supervisors who support our apprentices at Coventry College include: Maintenance Supervisor Andrew Freckleton, Maintenance Supervisor Andrew Stock, Maintenance Supervisor Phil Watson, Maintenance Supervisor Lauren Whittle, Maintenance Planning Manager Lorraine Crane, HR Business Partner Emma Lenton and HR Advisor Katy Turner.
