The Apprenticeship Pledge has won the Corporate Social Responsibility and Environment Award at Sheffield’s City Region Awards 2015.

The awards, which took place at Ponds Forge, Sheffield, on Thursday 2 July, take winners from the region’s four local Chamber’s Business Awards and the Derbyshire Times Awards and pit them head to head to establish the best of the best.

The Pledge beat seven other shortlisted entries to take home the prize and representatives from the college attended the ceremony to receive the award.

The black tie ceremony was attended by hundreds of people, including industry leaders and senior figures, including Sir Gary Verity.

The One Barnsley Group, which includes some of the region’s largest public and private sector employers, is backing the Pledge and is working hard to raise the profile of Apprenticeships.

Any business, regardless of size or location, can sign the Apprenticeship Pledge. If you would like more information on the Pledge or to find out how you can get involved with this award winning initiative, please email apprenticeships@barnsley.ac.uk or call +44 (0)1226 216 166.
