We at Louis Taylor were thrilled to announce that we were selected as one of the final three contenders for the SME Apprentice Employer of the Year award. This exciting recognition was revealed in February 2024 during a special event hosted by The University of Salford at the iconic Etihad Stadium in Manchester. The occasion celebrated the dedication and achievements of those involved in the apprenticeship journey.

Graham Hulse, Managing Director at Louis Taylor, expressed his joy and pride at the news, emphasising the pivotal role of the team in achieving this milestone. “I’m absolutely delighted, and tremendously proud of the team,” said Graham. “I enjoy the enthusiasm and energy they bring to help drive the business forward. Supporting rising new talent is an investment in the industry’s future!”

Our nomination for the SME Apprentice Employer of the Year award came as part of the National Apprenticeship Week 2024. Whilst unfortunately not winning the award on this occasion this recognition by The University of Salford underscores our unwavering commitment to the National Apprenticeship program and our significant contributions as a training provider.

With over 500 employer partnerships and a roster of more than 1,500 active apprentices, The University of Salford is a key player in the apprenticeship training landscape. We are particularly proud of our sponsorship of six young apprentices at Salford, further highlighting our dedication to nurturing talent and shaping the future workforce.
