Themis, Burnley College’s Apprenticeship and Training provider, is celebrating after being names in the top four Apprenticeship providers in the UK at the Apprenticeship 4 England Awards.

The prestigious awards ceremony, which was held in Tower Bridge, London, welcomed Apprenticeship providers from across the UK. On presentation of their award, the Themis team were commended for the outstanding training and support each Apprentice receives while completing their programme.

Also highly commended was Themis’ strong industry links with top employers throughout East Lancashire and the North West, the outstanding training facilities provided for Apprentices within the Princess Way Campus (such as the Centre of Engineering Excellence and Construction and Future Technologies Centre) and wealth of industry trainers passing on their experience and knowledge.

Director of Themis Simon Jordan said:

“It is extremely important that the north of England is being recognised as a hotbed of new skills and talent, not least to safeguard against the skills gaps of tomorrow. Being the only training provider in Lancashire to receive an award is a fantastic achievement for our outstanding trainer assessors and our wider Themis team and we’re very proud to have been nominated for this national accolade.”

Themis offers Apprenticeships in more than 50 industry areas.
