The AAC Apprenticeship Awards take place in February

AAC Awards

Manchester Metropolitan has been shortlisted in the "Digital Apprenticeship Provider of the Year" category

The University’s digital apprenticeship provision has been nominated for an award at next year’s Annual Apprenticeship Conference (AAC) Apprenticeship Awards.

FE Week and the Association of Employment and Learning Providers (AELP) have shortlisted Manchester Metropolitan alongside just one other apprenticeship provider in the category “Digital Apprenticeship Provider of the Year.”

Liz Gorb, Director of Apprenticeships said: “Being shortlisted for this award is a recognition of the quality and impact of our Degree Apprenticeship offering.

Our programmes enable degree apprentices to achieve and to deliver exceptional results, both at university and within the workplace. They thrive in genuine jobs, making a real impact and adding value, while developing personally into digitally capable professionals who will drive business performance, productivity and inspire others.”

Representatives from the University’s Degree Apprenticeship Team will attend a Parliamentary reception at the Houses of Parliament on Wednesday 5 February, during National Apprenticeship Week.

The event will be hosted by the Rt. Hon. Robert Halfon MP, Chair of the Education Select Committee and former Skills and Apprenticeship Minister, and will formally recognise the national finalists and their outstanding apprenticeship delivery.

The formal awards ceremony will take place at the AAC Gala Dinner, held at the ICC Birmingham in March. We were one of the first universities in the UK to offer Degree Apprenticeships, following the launch of our Digital & Technology Solutions programme in 2015.
