Compass Group UK & Ireland has been named a Top 100 Apprenticeship Employer for the first time at the National Apprenticeship Awards in London yesterday.

The list, which is compiled annually by the National Apprenticeship Service, recognises the businesses with the highest standards of excellence in employing apprentices.

The company was shortlisted for the list after winning the BT Award for the West Midlands Macro Employer of the Year at the Regional Apprenticeship Awards, last October.

Melanie Hayes, Resourcing and Developing Director for Compass Group UK & Ireland, said: ‘Apprentices make up a significant part of our business and as a leading apprenticeship employer we are keen to train people with the right skills and knowledge for their future and for our business.’

Sue Husband, Director of the National Apprenticeship Service, added: ‘The top 100 Apprenticeship Employer list 2015 demonstrates clearly the impact apprentices can have on an organisation.

‘These top 100 employers have made a difference to the lives of young people by investing in their future. Apprentices themselves, meanwhile, help employers to develop a skilled, qualified workforce which helps to build a stronger economy.

“Apprentice employers are creating opportunities for young people to gain the skills and knowledge they need to succeed, in some cases up to degree level, while working and earning.’
