News: Recognition for Bramall Construction apprentices


Rotherham firm Bramall Construction has been recognised for its apprenticeship scheme.

The Manvers company, which employs 58 apprentices nationwide in areas such as carpentry, joinery and bricklaying, scooped the Large Employer of the Year award at the regional finals of the Apprenticeship Awards.

In addition, Bramall's 18 year old apprentice, Jake Seddon who is completing a Plastering Apprenticeship at Barnsley College was highly commended within the Apprentice of the Year category.

Bramall Construction was commended by judges for making Apprenticeships the lifeblood of its business and for offering opportunities - particularly to less advantaged groups - allowing them to really turn their lives around. The panel also recognised the encouragement Bramall has given to apprentices to enter SkillBuild competitions and highlighted the company as an excellent role model.

Organised by the National Apprenticeship Service (NAS) the regional Apprenticeship Awards are designed to celebrate the achievements of apprentices and the businesses that employ them. Bramall will now represent Yorkshire and the Humber and automatically go through to a judging panel for the National Apprenticeship Awards held on July 15 in London.

Nick Wilson, regional director for the NAS in Yorkshire and the Humber, said: "This year's awards were a terrific showcase of the outstanding wealth of Apprenticeship talent that we have across Yorkshire and the Humber.

"It's been a tough year for businesses and the economy, but the awards have given Apprenticeships the chance to shine - showing that they are key to growth during the economic upturn.

"All the finalists demonstrated what makes Apprenticeships so successful, not only in Yorkshire and the Humber but throughout England. The winners are now ambassadors for Apprenticeships and for the region’s dedication to this programme."
