A company which has employed 11 apprentices and is set to take on three more has been honoured at a Weston College awards evening.
Alliance Homes won Construction Employer of the Year at the College’s recent Excellence in Business Training Awards 2012 event, which honoured businesses and apprentices.
Alliance Homes Business Enterprise Manager, Michael Williams, said: “We are a business that is about helping communities and it is essential to support young people in them.”
One of their apprentices, Abigail Nicholas, 22, of Exford Close on the Coronation Estate in Weston, was Highly Commended in the Voluntary Sector Learner of the Year Award.
She said: “I’ve been an apprentice for nearly a year and absolutely love the team I work with and Weston College has been there to give me support.”
Weston College Principal and Chief Executive, Dr Paul Phillips OBE added: “Alliance Homes is an extremely supportive employer which works in partnership with the College.”
Dr Phillips shared the celebrations with more than 220 employers and learners at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel near Yatton.
