Seetec Group wins two national apprenticeship awards

Apprenticeships specialist Seetec Group has scooped two national awards which recognise excellence of provision across a wide variety of industries and sectors.

Outsource Vocational Learning, part of Seetec Group, has been recognised as Apprenticeship Provider of the Year for Transport & Logistics, while Seetec won Business & Administration Apprenticeship provider of the year.

Winners of the FE Week and AELP AAC Apprenticeship Awards 2019 were announced during the Annual Apprenticeship Conference Gala Dinner in Birmingham on 28 March. In their second year, the awards attracted more than 350 entries, with a range of new categories celebrating 13 individual apprenticeship routes.

Melanie Nicholson, Seetec’s Executive Director for Excellence, Apprenticeships and Skills, said: “These awards emphasis Seetec’s depth of expertise across a variety of sectors and showcase the diverse opportunities available to young people, existing employees and employers.”

Shane Mann, Managing Director of FE Week’s publisher, said: “These awards are a brilliant opportunity to demonstrate and celebrate the importance of apprenticeships. The volume of entries we’ve received was overwhelming and showcased just how much talent there is in the sector.”

With more than 20 years’ experience, Outsource was chosen for its role in raising the profile of the transport and logistics sector, working closely with the British International Freight Association (BIFA), as well as developing new apprenticeship standards for aviation and a series of interactive modules for freight forwarding.

With the sector facing up to an ageing workforce, technological change and the impact of Brexit, Outsource has been at the forefront of developing early talent programmes and focusing on upskilling of existing staff to meet current and future challenges.

Outsource partners with large and small businesses to design flexible programmes, ensuring both apprentices and managers are prepared, so they can be integrated seamlessly to meet operational needs.

Vikki Kerslake from employer DB Schenker highlighted the benefit of working with Outsource: “Outsource really partner with you, it’s like having another arm of your own business. What sets them apart is that they really make the business ready for the apprentices.”

Seetec has been at the forefront of developing the Business Administrator Standard and is achieving high completion rates, exceed national averages. The Group has led the way in helping large employers to Leverage their Levy and worked closely with a multi-national law firm to develop the Business Administrator standard for legal secretaries and administrators.

Seetec practises what it preaches, introducing its own internal apprenticeships after the Levy commenced, and achieving the Gold Investors in People Standard for the second time in 2018, demonstrating its commitment to learning and development.
