Crimson Academy welcomed its 2020 cohort at the beginning of September, with 10 apprentices joining the company. This cohort is the biggest yet and is also the most diverse – 40 percent are female and there’s a higher percentage of second jobbers. The arrival of our third cohort means that Crimson Academy makes up 22 percent of the company, with training and development taking precedent across the organisation.
Crimson Academy has been recognised by BirminghamLive Apprenticeship Awards as well as National Apprenticeship Awards in the Medium Employer of the Year and SME Employer of the Year categories respectively.
The National Apprenticeship Awards begin with the Regional Apprenticeship Awards on the 4th November. The awards, which will be virtual, will announce the regional winners of each category. The regional winners are then automatically entered into the National Apprenticeship Awards which are held later in the month. The BirminghamLive Apprenticeship Awards are based in the West Midlands and will be held on the 27th November.
Our fingers (and toes) are crossed for both award ceremonies. You can keep up to date with Crimson Academy news on our LinkedIn page.
