Realise Crowned UK’s Top Apprenticeship Provider

8848’s client, Realise, has been named the UK’s No. 1 training provider at the FE Week and AELP AAC Apprenticeship Awards.

Realise, which has its head office on 12 Europa View at Sheffield Business Park, was recognised with the award for ‘Apprenticeship Provider of the Year’ at an official ceremony at The International Convention Centre in Birmingham.

Realise hailed success in a competitive category, nominated alongside Manchester Metropolitan University, Myerscough College and Remit Training.

Managing director Gregg Scott is delighted to have received the honour and dedicated the award to the entire Realise team.

He said: “It was an incredible night and to be crowned Apprenticeship Provider of the Year is a huge achievement for everyone associated with Realise.

“To support over 7,000 learners and many hundreds of employers right across the country is not something which happens without a huge amount of hard work and commitment and the Realise team has displayed that in abundance.

“The success is also testament to the flexibility shown by the entire team in dealing with unique challenges posed by the pandemic and transitioning to remote learning virtually overnight.

“We’d never faced a scenario like that before and hopefully never will again, but the way everyone at Realise adjusted both personally and professionally helped us maintain our high standards and level of delivery to our learners.”

Gregg is now determined to continue the impressive rise Realise has enjoyed in recent years.

He added: “While this is an outstanding accolade, we will certainly not rest on our laurels and will instead use it as motivation to continue to grow.

“There are exciting times ahead for Realise and all the learners and employers we work with.”

Shane Mann, Publisher of FE Week and Chair of the Awards judging panel, said: ““The evening was an excellent opportunity for us all to celebrate the enormous contribution our finalists make towards the success of apprenticeships – and there really was so much to celebrate.

“The providers, employers and individuals recognised during the prestigious awards represent the innovators, risk-takers and pioneers that are not only doing amazing things for apprentices but are also proving that apprenticeships are a first-rate pathway through education.

“The finalists represent the very best of the apprenticeship sector and we wish a huge congratulations to all the winners.”

Realise provides first class skills, education and employment services to more than 7,000 learners and thousands of employers across the UK every year.
