Neopost Limited, a global leader in document, mail and parcel processing solutions, announced today it has been named as one of London's best employers in the regional final of the National Apprenticeship Awards and National Training Awards 2012, winning the BAE Systems Large Employer of the Year award.
The finalists and winners were announced at a high profile joint awards ceremony organised by the National Apprenticeship Service, which was held at City Hall on 25th September.
Katy Stanley, from Neopost, comments, "We are proud to have won the regional finals of the National Apprenticeship Awards. We would not have won this award without the determination and professionalism of our apprentices and the Neopost managers and supporters who work hard to make our apprenticeship scheme a huge success."
The National Training Awards recognise organisations that have delivered outstanding training programmes and the National Apprenticeship Awards celebrate the achievements of the country's most outstanding Apprenticeship employer's and their apprentices. Both awards are organised by the National Apprenticeship Service, who received in excess of 1,500 high quality entrants this year.
Vic Grimes, Divisional Area Director for London and South East from the National Apprenticeship Service, said: "This year's awards were a terrific showcase of the outstanding wealth of talent that we have across London. Given the volume and high calibre of entries we received, I'd like to take this opportunity to congratulate Neopost Limited for this superb achievement. They are a testament to the many benefits Apprenticeships bring to businesses, allowing employers to tap into new raw talent, up-skill their staff and grow."
All the London winners will proceed through to a final national judging stage and the highest scoring Apprenticeship employer entries nationally will have the additional honour of featuring in the acclaimed England's Top 100 Apprenticeship Employers list, which will be produced by the National Apprenticeship Service in partnership with City & Guilds. The Top 100 Apprenticeship Employers and the national award winners will be revealed during the opening ceremony of the UK's largest national skills and careers event, WorldSkills UK - The Skills Show, at the NEC in Birmingham on 14 November.
The National Apprenticeship Awards are sponsored by City & Guilds, Pearson, EAL, Nuclear Decommissioning SLC and BAE Systems. The National Training Awards have City & Guilds as their premier sponsor and are also sponsored by Rolls Royce.
The London awards ceremony was supported by the Mayor of London, The Greater London Authority and HSBC, who provided the venue and reception.
