The national body of Group Training Associations recently held its Annual members Conference aimed at meeting the Governments targets on training and skills, as well as celebrating the successes of Apprentices across the country.

The Conference took place at the prestigious headquarters of the IMechE (Institution of Mechanical Engineers) in Westminster, London. Dinner took place in the Elizabethan style Library, which has views over St. James Park.

The event was opened by GTA England Vice Chairman Steve Gray, who is also CEO of Training 2000. Speakers were drawn from educational institutions such as EAL, Ofsted, BIS and the Engineering Skills Service.

The evening culminated in an awards ceremony which shined a spotlight on exceptional apprentices drawn from every region.

Eight learners were invited to attend the finals; four in the Engineering/Construction Category and four in the Business Services category.

Two of our learners made it through to the finals and Henry Clarke, who works at Blackburn with Darwen Borough Council was named as the overall winner of the Business Services Award.

Liam Woinson of Paradigm Precision was also shortlisted as a finalist in the Engineering/Construction Category. He was most definitely a worthy contender but unfortunately didn’t manage to scoop a win, though he has won many awards in the past!

The Minister of State for Skills, Nick Boles, was also in attendance to announce the winner and present each apprentice with a Certificate of Commendation.

Mr Boles said of the awards;

“The GTA England awards ceremony highlights the talent, energy and skill apprentices bring to businesses both large and small across the country.”
