We’re extremely excited to announce that we have been invited by The Cheshire Business Awards to sponsor The Cheshire and Warrington Apprentice Trainer of the Year Award 2016!
Barlows are currently the holders of this award having won in 2015. It was a fantastic year for the company who also scooped The High Sheriffs Award for Enterprise for Training, Development and Opportunity for Young People, The North West Chamber of Commerce People Development Award, The Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce Medium Size Company of the Year Award and Cheshire Business Person of the Year Award!
Since these acknowledgements of high standards, Barlows have developed a new apprentice training model and staff improvement strategy to compliment the quality which has previously been celebrated at Buckingham Palace and 10 Downing Street. This new training scheme enables other electrical companies to train alongside Barlows staff.
The Barlows Training Centre, which has now been re-branded as Clifford College after Thomas Clifford Barlow who started the business back in 1948, is seeing more apprentices through it’s doors than ever before! In a time when all areas of the construction industry are experiencing a period of rapid growth and there is a shortage of skilled trades people this is fantastic news.
We’re looking forward to finding out who the nominations are for this years Cheshire Business Awards and cant wait to be involved with this prestigious event.
