Our EAL centres are full of fantastic people – brilliant tutors, high-achieving learners and real champions of skills.
Yet how often do we or you shout about it? Not often enough in my view.
That’s why I am asking you to make sure this wealth of talent is recognised by entering or nominating your organisation, learners or an employer you’ve been working with for the prestigious Semta Skills Awards.
These are no ordinary awards – now in their fourth year, they honour the very best in British advanced manufacturing and engineering, giving the winners exposure to leading employers and the wider population, providing inspiration to others.
I am certain we can all name at least one apprentice, higher apprentice, graduate or skills champion who deserve to be recognised.
