It was double the good news for QA Apprenticeships and Capgemini this month as they bagged two prizes at the recent South Central Regional Apprenticeship Awards in both the apprentice and employer categories.
Named as ‘Higher Apprentice of the Year’, not only did Jake Eker take home this coveted award, but his employer, Capgemini, was also recognised for its incredible achievement – scooping the Macro Employer of the Year title.
Ben Sweetman, Head of Programmes at QA Apprenticeships commented: “A great business starts on the inside – and in this case it begins with excellent working relationships between the employer and its apprentice.
“It is through working conjunctively that the benefits have really shone through – securing two fantastic opportunities in the form of these sought-after awards. It just goes to show that if you’re truly committed to investing in your efforts, such an investment will pay off; with both parties duly awarded their deserved accolades.”
A leader in the IT and business services industry, Capgemini has helped refine the skills of its 200-strong apprentices - through the provision of tailored advanced and higher developer initiatives. Helping to prepare the apprentices for the daily prospects and challenges they can expect to face once they enter the world of work, the efforts of Capgemini has helped both catapult them – and their apprentices - into the media spotlight.
“In addition, both winners have been reported to stand an excellent chance of cracking it in the National Apprenticeship Awards Finals in Birmingham this November,” added Sweetman.
“We’re extremely hopeful that they’ll impress the judging panel with their continued success, and that their ongoing commitment to giving young adults the opportunity to forge a career for themselves will set an example to other businesses.”
An award-winning apprenticeships provider, QA Apprenticeships has enjoyed huge growth since establishing itself back in 2009. Specialising in business, IT and sales apprenticeships schemes across England and Scotland, the company works with leading names including British Gas, Capgemini and Cisco.
