The awards, now in their fourteenth year, are run by the National Apprenticeship Service and recognise excellence in two areas; businesses that grow their own talent with apprentices and apprentices who have made a significant contribution to their workplaces.

On being recognised as highly commended,  Andy Reynolds said, “It’s not about me, it’s about  my apprentices that have worked hard and are now my skilled workforce.”

A J Reynolds was highly commended in recognition of the contribution his company has made to apprenticeships. Andy began as a one-man band, trading in Frome in 1991. In 1992 he employed his first apprentice; he has moved premises three times within Frome and now employs nine staff, of which 7 were, or are his apprentices.

The award was sponsored by BAE Systems.

Sue Husband, director of the National Apprenticeship Service said, “The National Apprenticeship Awards allow talented apprentices and committed employers from across our regions to receive well-deserved recognition for their apprenticeship achievements.

“The highly commended finalists at these awards show the range of sectors and variety of job roles apprenticeships are available in, and how they can deliver the skills employers need. I congratulate all highly commended finalists on their success in this competition.”
