At the Annual Apprenticeship National Awards ceremony, which took place on Tuesday 3rd March, the British Racing School won the award in the Agriculture, Environmental and Animal Care Apprenticeship Provider of the Year sector.
The Awards are hosted by AELP [Association of Employment and Learning Providers] and FE Week. The Ceremony was held in Birmingham in front of the new Secretary of State for Apprenticeships and Skills Gillian Keegan MP.
The awards look to recognise providers offering outstanding world-class apprenticeships. This year there were 350 entries – an increase of 20% on previous years – spread across fifteen categories. . The awards were established in 2017 as a joint project by FE Week and AELP, with the national awards ceremony taking place the Annual Apprenticeship Conference Gala Dinner.
Grant Harris, BRS Chief Executive said “The BRS is open 365 days a year offering training and education to young people from all walks of life, preparing them for a career in horseracing.
To win a national award for apprenticeship provision is recognition of the dedication and amazing work of all BRS staff. To do so in front of a national audience of the country’s leading apprenticeship providers and the Minister for Apprenticeships and Skills capped a wonderful evening. Our thanks go to AELP and FE Week.”
