Abingdon & Witney College have been recognised as the leading apprenticeship provider in the South of England at the inaugural Annual Apprenticeship Awards.
The awards took place at a reception at the House of Commons, sponsored by the chair of the education select committee Robert Halfon, kicking off the celebrations at the start of National Apprenticeship Week (NAW).
Support has flooded in since the announcement was made on Monday afternoon. Robert Courts, MP for Witney & West Oxon, was at the event to ‘celebrate all the great things that companies and apprentices are doing all over West Oxfordshire’ and commended the College, whilst MP for Oxford West & Abingdon, Layla Moran also offered her congratulations.
Di Batchelor, Principal at the College, said: ‘We can’t overstate the value of this kind of award and the recognition it brings to the College as a premier provider of high quality apprenticeships.’
