Introducing the University Print Studio, Apprenticeship Employer Award (<10 employees) sponsor

We are delighted to introduce the University of Oxford Print Studio - a design, print and binding service in central Oxford - as sponsor of the Oxfordshire Apprenticeship Awards 2020 Apprenticeship Employer Award (<10 employees). This is a new category for 2020, which has been introduced to recognise the large number of micro employers in Oxfordshire who are providing valuable Apprenticeship opportunities with a small number of staff.

Head of Shared Services in Facilities Management at the University of Oxford, Sarah King, welcomes the addition of the new category. She says: "Many of our creative partners and suppliers are micro businesses. We want to sponsor this award in recognition of the fact that you don’t have to be a huge company to make a valuable contribution to Apprenticeships."

In addition to sponsoring this Award, the Print Studio have once again offered to support the Oxfordshire Apprenticeship Awards by donating their time, skills and resources to produce our printed materials.

This means even more to us because the team’s Apprentice, Jordan Morris, who's also one of our Apprenticeship Ambassadors, will help to produce them as well as designing the artwork for the trophies that will be awarded to the winning Apprentices.

Jordan says: “It’s so nice to be given the opportunity to show how well an Apprenticeship can bring someone on and develop their skills! I will be so proud when the winning Apprentices receive the awards that I’ve designed for them. It’s great to be able to produce something that makes them feel proud and also celebrates how fantastic Apprenticeships are!”

The team know how rewarding it is to be recognised through an award, having won the 'Apprenticeship Manager's Special Award' at the University of Oxford Apprenticeships Expo and Awards in recognition of all their hard work and contributions towards promoting Apprenticeships.
