The University is one of three finalists in the 2017 Oxfordshire Business Awards in the Apprenticeship Employer of the Year category.
This accolade recognises the work to expand our Apprenticeship scheme which offers the opportunity to kick start rewarding careers. From 10 apprenticeship places just three years ago we now have over 100 apprentices carrying out a diverse range of roles across the University – from software developers and building maintenance workers to lab technicians.
The criteria for this award includes demonstrating recruitment processes which encourage applications from a diverse and inclusive range of candidates, providing exceptional personal development and learning opportunities above and beyond the training provided by the apprentice training provider.
The winner of the award will be announced on Friday 16 June 2017.
