Tell us why you’re supporting the Oxfordshire Apprenticeship Awards

Apprentices make huge contributions in the work place and in the classroom. Apprenticeships offer a great opportunity for individuals to reach their full potential and for employers to develop talented people who will ultimately have an important positive impact on their business. To make an Apprenticeship work well you need a serious commitment from the Apprentice, the employer and the training provider - Oxford Brookes is sponsoring these awards in recognition of the commitment it takes from all parties make to ensure an Apprenticeship is a success.
