Auto Windscreens was named Large Newcomer of the Year at the North Midlands & South Yorkshire Apprentice Awards 2017, as well as receiving a special commendation in the ‘Training Provider of the Year’ category.
The company was recognised for its commitment to its apprenticeship scheme (ALEX) and has pledged to introduce 40 additional apprentices to the business by the end of 2017.
The ceremony which took place at The Showroom Workstation in Sheffield, saw the windscreen repair and replacement provider beat off stiff competition from Royal Mail. The awards, in their first year, celebrate and recognise the hardworking individuals and organisations involved in apprenticeships and how they shape our future.
Rupert Armitage, Auto Windscreens’ managing director, said: “The apprentices are proving invaluable to the business and we plan to continue to support more young people with the transition from education into the workplace and ensure the next generation of glass repair technicians are trained to our excellent standards.”
