BAE Systems has won the Macro Employer of the Year Award and the Recruitment Excellence Award at the National Apprenticeship Awards in London, recognising the Company’s dedication to delivering high-quality apprenticeships.

The Awards, now in their fifteenth year, are run by the National Apprenticeship Service and recognise businesses that grow their own talent through apprenticeships and individual apprentices who have made a significant contribution to their workplaces.

Steve Fogg, Managing Director, BAE Systems Shared Services commented on the achievement: "We are delighted to be awarded both the Macro Employer of the Year and the Recruitment Excellence awards at the 2018 National Apprenticeship Awards in recognition of our commitment to developing young talent.  We have a long history of nurturing skills and our apprenticeships offer vocational experience as well as training up to degree and masters level. 

“We are immensely proud to receive these awards and I congratulate all those involved in delivering our apprenticeships and ensuring our apprentices receive the very best in training, support and career opportunities."

Lucas Benson, a Craft Apprentice at BAE Systems who was shortlisted for the ‘Advanced Apprentice of the Year’ award, was Highly Commended for his work on complex engineering projects such as the F-35 and Hawk at the Company's Air business based at Warton.

Damian Hinds, Education Secretary, said: “Apprenticeships are an excellent way for anyone to gain new skills and forge a career in anything from aerospace engineering to nursing. The National Apprenticeship Awards is a fantastic event to celebrate the achievements of apprentices, employers and training providers, and I want to wish all the winners and nominees congratulations on their incredible efforts.”

The company invests approximately £90m per year in education, skills and early careers activities and has approximately 2,000 apprentices in training across its UK businesses at any given time, with circa 95% on average securing permanent roles each year.

In addition to this latest win, BAE Systems was recently named #1 employer of apprentices in the UK on review website Rate My Apprenticeship.
