Alliance Learning Round Off Successful Year with Four Award Nominations


Alliance Learning are celebrating securing nominations for four awards in the Skills for Business Awards 2017.

The Skills for Business Awards are now in their fourth year, and aim to recognise and celebrate the direct impact learning has on businesses, individuals and communities in Greater Manchester.

Alliance Learning have been shortlisted for the highly coveted Learning Provider of the Year and three of their apprentices have also been shortlisted for awards. Emily Naylor from Hyquip Ltd is shortlisted for Intermediate Apprentice of the Year. Daniel Blake from TrakRap Ltd and Sarah Bleasdale, have both been shortlisted for the Advanced Apprentice of the Year award.

Additionally, Aptus Utilities from Bolton, have also been shortlisted for the Medium Business of the Year Award for the commitment they have shown to the ongoing development of Apprentices with the support of Alliance Learning.

Julie Robinson, Chief Executive of Alliance Learning, said:

“2017 has been yet another truly fantastic year for Alliance Learning. We are now delivering Early Years Foundation degrees in partnership with Bolton University. We have retained our Grade 2 OFSTED and received a 0% error rate on our ESFA audit showing our commitment to quality. In June 2017, we undertook an assessment for the British Standard code of practice for Valuing People through Diversity and Inclusion and we were the first company in UK to achieve this award! I am extremely proud of all our achievements and to be shortlisted for awards for the Skills for Business Awards is just the icing on the cake. We have our fingers tightly crossed ready for the awards ceremony at the end of November."

The Skills for Business Awards are hosted by a partnership of Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce and Greater Manchester Learning Provider Network.

This year’s Award Ceremony will be held at The Point, Emirates Old Trafford, on Thursday 30th November, for more information on these awards visit
