The eighth annual Oxfordshire Apprenticeship Awards will once again shine a spotlight on our county’s apprentices – and the businesses and organisations, training providers and schools that support their journey – recognising the huge contribution they make to our county’s economy at a special awards ceremony on Thursday 16 May 2024 at Williams Racing Conference Centre.
We’re delighted to introduce Activate Apprenticeships as a sponsor of the Oxfordshire Apprenticeship Awards 2024.
Here, Anne-Marie Everett, Group Marketing Business Partner for Activate Apprenticeships and Activate Business School, explains why they have chosen to sponsor the awards and what apprenticeships mean to them.
