Education Secretary Gillian Keegan said:
“Congratulations to all the employers across the North East which have been
recognised for their brilliant apprenticeship programmes.
“My apprenticeship was my golden ticket to a successful business career. These
employers in sectors from digital, childcare and healthcare recognise the benefits
apprentices can bring to their business, helping to create a talent pipeline and filling
skills gaps to grow the economy. I would encourage all businesses – no matter what
size or sector – to follow their lead.”
