Alison Galvin, HR director at Invotra said: “For Invotra, an intranet software company based outside of London, it’s essential we attract and nurture our own talent – one third of our employees are apprentices.  Apprenticeships play a fundamental role in the success of our business – they are highly skilled, committed, enthusiastic and bright.

“We are absolutely delighted to be crowned a regional winner. We are committed to investing in our award-winning apprenticeship programme and look forward to welcoming on board many future apprentices – especially supporting our aims to champion women in technology – and watching them fly.”

Now in their fifteenth year, the National Apprenticeship Awards showcase the diverse and growing range of sectors engaged with apprenticeships, whilst celebrating outstanding apprentices, employers and individuals who go above and beyond to champion apprenticeships across England.

The awards are open to apprentices, individuals who promote apprenticeships and employers of all sizes from all sectors.
Keith Smith, Director, Apprenticeships Group, Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA) said:
“I am delighted to see so many regional winners being recognised and representing such a wide variety of sectors and industries. We know apprenticeships enable businesses to grow their own talent, and also allow individuals to start or progress their careers. The talent presented by winners and highly commended finalists really does showcase the impact of apprenticeships on individuals and employers alike.
“There really were some outstanding applications and great apprenticeship stories, all highlighting the many benefits apprenticeships bring. I wish all winners the best of luck as we progress to the national stage of the competition and I want to personally thank everyone who took time to enter the awards this year.”

Regional winners in the National Apprenticeship Awards 2018 are being announced at nine regional ceremonies taking place over the next three weeks. As a regional winner, Invotra is now entered in to the National Apprenticeship Awards; the ceremony takes place on the 28th November 2018 in London.
