We won the award for Large Employer of the Year 2018!

We are very excited to announce that we were crowned 'Large Employer of the Year' at last night's annual Worcestershire Apprenticeship Awards!

The awards ceremony, hosted by BAFTA-nominated TV presenter Angelica Bell, was held at the Treetops Pavilion at West Midlands Safari Park where the county’s best apprenticeship employers, apprentices, schools and training providers came together to celebrate the award winners.

At OGL, we fully understand the importance of hiring and training local talent and providing them with the technology skills that will help them pursue a long and successful career. We regularly enrol new apprentices, and we're always on the lookout for enthusiastic individuals to join the team! Our course completion rate is significantly higher than the industry average - we think this is due to our commitment to providing the best hands-on experience, effective training plan and support network. We like to set our apprentices up for career progression.

Karen Hughes, Technical Service Delivery Manager, who oversees the apprentices, said: “We’re very proud to have been recognised as large employer of the year - it was a fantastic evening celebrating all the hard work of the county’s employers, apprentices and providers throughout the last year. 

“We’re also proud of our apprentices who have worked hard and become an integral part of the team at OGL and our Apprentice Mentor, Natalie Watton, for guiding and supporting them through to graduation. It’s a pleasure to see our latest graduates progress in their career and we’re always looking for new apprentices to begin their journey with us."
