Recognising Our Apprentices at Partou’s Inaugural Award Ceremony

Earlier this month, we celebrated our fabulous apprentices from across the Partou nursery group during National Apprenticeship Week 2024 at our annual Apprenticeship Awards ceremony! This was our opportunity to give them the recognition that they thoroughly deserved and let them know how proud we are of what they have achieved, highlighting the great things they have accomplished during their apprenticeship journey!

Apprentices from Partou nurseries across the North West, Yorkshire, South West, South East and Midlands & Home Counties gathered alongside training providers, nursery managers and members of the group’s Nursery Support Team on Saturday 10th February for the company’s inaugural Apprenticeship Awards ceremony.

The awards which celebrated outstanding contribution across 4 key areas of apprenticeships saw nursery apprentices nominated for the awards, with regional winners in each category chosen by a judging panel based on submissions received from learning coaches, nursery managers and apprenticeship mentors.

In a ceremony at The Village Hotel Walsall, the proud winners in each category each received an award, certificate and bumper Green and Blacks Chocolate Hamper to celebrate their achievement.
