On Saturday 20th May we celebrated our annual Busy Bees Training Graduation, honouring over 200 of our hard-working apprentices and staff members.
Organised to recognise the achievements of all those undertaking apprenticeship and training programmes with us, the event saw apprentices from across the country flock to the National Conference Centre in Solihull for the day in preparation for the awards.
Awards were presented in nine separate categories, which covered everything from Management Apprentice of the Year picked up by Suzanne Breeze, to Jenny Claydon who was named Training Ambassador of the Year.
Other awards presented included the Recognition of Career Progression Award, taken home by Kelly Halman, Catering Apprentice of the Year Constance Jackson and Training Officer of the Year presented to Lauren Dawson.
Attendees also heard words of wisdom from inspirational speakers including Managing Director Marg Randles, Motivational Speaker Pam Burrows, HR and Training Director Clare Phizacklea and Training Manager Fay Gibbin.
Fay Gibbin, training manager for Busy Bees Training, said:
“The event was a huge success and we were pleased to see so many of our candidates scoop the awards that they so clearly deserved.
“We have such a rich pool of talent here at Busy Bees Training and, as always, it was a tough call to find just one winner in each category. Whenever possible, we try to recognise the achievements of those who work so hard for us and we hope that each and every individual enjoyed the ceremony as much as we did.”
We would like to take this opportunity to say a huge thank you to everyone who attended and congratulations to those that picked up an award. Also thank you to our generous sponsors for providing some fantastic prizes for our winners and luxury gifts for them to enjoy.
