Mitchells & Butlers scoop Highly Commended Award

Mitchells & Butlers is celebrating receiving a Highly Commended award at the West Midlands National Apprenticeship Awards 2014.

The company has beaten off competition from hundreds of entrants to be short-listed as a finalist in the BT Macro Employer of the Year award category which celebrates employers who can showcase their commitment, contribution and the success that Apprenticeships have brought to their organisation.

At the awards ceremony, hosted at Mitchells & Butlers' Retail Support Centre in Birmingham, the company achieved the Highly Commended award in recognition of the Marco Employers (more than 5,000 employees) Category for the quality of their programme and commitment to developing their people through nationally recognised Apprenticeship qualifications.

Karen Riley, Deputy Director Employer & Delivery Services Central, said: "The National Apprenticeship Awards are an excellent platform to recognise and celebrate the dedication shown by all our excellent Apprenticeship employers and apprentices. The quality of entries we have had for the Midland's awards this year has been exceptional. Those who have won should celebrate their success. But every apprentice and employer who entered can be proud of what they have achieved.

"Apprenticeships continue to grow in popularity, and events like the National Apprenticeship Awards showcase just how beneficial they are for both employers and individuals. I hope everyone who received an award on the night is proud of their achievements, and continues to fly the flag for Apprenticeships throughout their career."

Darren Goodenough, Youth, Education and Skills Manager, Mitchells & Butlers said: "The National Apprenticeship Awards are an excellent platform to recognise and celebrate apprenticeships. We are delighted and proud that Mitchells & Butlers' apprenticeship programme is so well regarded. Working for us gives thousands of young people the opportunity to learn, earn and gain qualifications which can lead to a career within the hospitality sector."
