Our Academy is proud to announce that National Grid was rated as the 22nd best employer of apprentices for 2019/20 at the recent Rate My Apprenticeship Awards.
In addition, National Grid is also the number one utility company to appear in the Top 100 – an excellent achievement given the strong competition this year from other large organisations within the sector.
The Academy’s New Talent Development team attended the 2019/20 Rate My Apprenticeship Awards in London last month and the highlight of the event was to find out where we placed in this year’s UK Top 100 employers table.
The awards attract well renowned organisations from all industries and sectors in the UK, to determine the top 100 employers of apprentices each year. The event is also a chance to celebrate regional success and individual accomplishment in the apprenticeship arena.
This year’s result will support the future attraction of top talent for our New Talent Development programmes. It highlights the combined efforts of both the Academy and the business in designing, delivering and managing our apprenticeships and learners.
Rate My Apprenticeship results are highly valued by organisations and potential future apprenticeship applicants, as they are based on anonymous surveys completed by current apprentices. This being the case, they are a genuine reflection of learners’ experiences, thoughts and feelings about the business they work for and the apprenticeships they are working to complete.
