SEAAN Supporting Regional Awards Events

It has been a privilege for SEAAN in being able to support these events over the last year. Nominations for the various categories were difficult to judge as the standard was so high.

Woking: Regional Apprenticeship Awards.  SEAAN Ambassadors Gavin Graham, Ray Abrahams and Nicola Morgan were joined by Elizabeth Flegg our SEAAN Chair at this prestigious event. Another opportunity to celebrate excellence in apprenticeships. We are thankful to those who judged the awards, and to the employers and training providers who provide the support, guidance, mentoring, and care. Enabling sectors to upskill, retain, and drive forward their businesses, offering opportunities and career choices to many.
