A Huge Congratulations to Joseph Jackson on winning joint 'Apprentice of the Year,' at the North East Cheshire Business Awards on Friday evening.
Tracey Cosgrave from Macclesfield College, the sponsors of the award, said that the judges "were amazed at the standard of the entries that were received. The three finalists are all great ambassadors for apprenticeships and are a credit to themselves and their employers’. We couldn’t split the final decision, so we have joint winners of the Apprentice of the Year award.”
A Huge thank you to all of those who participated in Manchester Pride. Great to see so many employees living our values.
