South and City College Birmingham has again celebrated the success of apprenticeships with employers and young people at the Sir Doug Ellis Apprenticeship Awards evening. After a year-long break, the awards were held at The Macdonald Burlington Hotel on Friday 11 March.
The Awards were hosted by our very own College Ambassador and InBusiness President Tom Ross. On the night, Tom was joined by special guest speakers Andrea Jester, Consultant Plastic/Hand Surgeon Birmingham’s Women’s and Children’s NHS Foundation Trust, The Lord Mayor’s Deputy, Honorary Alderman Randal Brew and entrepreneur Carl Barton, EarnLearn.co.uk.
The evening raised over £1,800 in aid of the Birmingham Women’s Children’s Hospital.
The college would like to thank the generous sponsors of the event: Aston University, Open College Network, VGC, Balfour Beatty Vinci, Longrow Capital, Patara Chartered Accountants, Greater Birmingham Chambers of Commerce, National Express, NFDC, Subway, Birmingham City Football Club, The Belfry Hotel and Resort, Chung Ying Group, Lyons Boat Yard and of course our partners at the MacDonald Burlington Hotel.
Many congratulations to ALL our winners and a big thank you to all our employers and college staff who contributed and nominated – along with the staff and students who helped set up this incredibly successful evening of celebration.
