Entries have opened for the 2019 Themis Inspire and Achieve Awards that recognise the commitment, innovation and motivation of the very best Themis Apprentices and Employers from across the North West.
This year, Apprentices and Employers are being encouraged to nominate themselves in nine categories, covering a range of industries and recognising the achievements of Apprentices at all stages of their career, as well as leading employers. A panel of specialist judges will then shortlist finalists ahead of a glittering awards ceremony on 5 September, attended by leaders of industry, top employers, Apprentices and their families.
Simon Jordan, Director of Themis at Burnley College, said: “This year we are looking for the best of the best. The winners of 2019 Themis Inspire and Achieve Awards will be those individuals and employers who stand head and shoulders above the rest, whose determination and expertise act as an inspiration for others and who truly reflect the values we hold at Themis
“Themis Apprentices are among the very best in the country: their passion, skill and ambition makes them ideal members of the workforce and these awards recognise the valued role they play in helping to drive their employer’s business to new heights. They are bold. They are brave. They are brilliant.
“The employers with whom Themis works are among the most forward-thinking in the country. Employers who recognise the vital role that Apprentices can play in bringing new skills and knowledge, as well as energy and innovation, to the business. They are truly invested in creating the dynamic and dedicated workforce of tomorrow which will take the nation’s industry to the forefront of the global economy.”
