Troup Bywaters + Anders (TB+A), a CCCA member, has been commended for their commitment to training and skills excellence by Her Royal Highness The Princess Royal at a ceremony at St James’s Palace in London earlier this week.
The award recognises organisations for creating lasting impact by successfully linking their skills development needs to business performance. TB+A has been contributing the building and design sector skills shortage by developing their own Apprenticeship programme. They have successfully led the level 3 and level 6 Trailblazers with ambitions to develop a level 7 qualification. They are also encouraging more female apprentices into the industry with the aim of having 30% female engineers in their business by 2020.
On receiving the award, Neil Weller (pictured), Partner at TB+A said: “It is a real honour to receive this award which recognises the importance we place on developing all of our people. It further promotes the credibility of professional apprenticeship schemes as an equal to the university pathway. We really hope that parents and schools will now see apprenticeships as the route of choice as it’s a fantastic paid opportunity to gain professional qualifications and practical skills”.
