A2Dominion wins Apprentice Employer of the Year Award
A2Dominion has won the ‘Ealing Apprenticeship Network Employer of the Year’ accolade at the Ealing Apprenticeship Network Awards 2016.
The award was presented to A2Dominion at a ceremony in Ealing on 22 November, attended by apprentices, training assessors and employers from the Network.
For the last four years, A2Dominion has been investing in young people through its successful apprenticeship programme, which is run in partnership with Ealing Council.
The initiative has seen the majority of its participants progress into permanent employment at A2Dominion including Sofia Cabral, who won the Apprentice of the Year award in 2015.
Commenting on the award win, Steve Michaux, A2Dominion’s Group Director of Leasehold Services said:
“We're thrilled to win this award which reflects our long term commitment to apprenticeships and our partnership with Ealing Council.
“Our apprentice programme has evolved over several years and is building on strong foundations. We are confident that we can continue to expand this outstanding opportunity.”
A2Dominion apprentice, Niamh Faughnan who also attended the event, added:
“I am so glad that my first job is at A2Dominion. I have learnt a great amount from the organisation and picked up a variety of skills and support, which I can put to good use in and out of work.”
At a separate event, A2Dominion’s Ekansh Sharma, was named as President by leading training provider BPP for the London region of apprentices.
The 19 year-old Employment Pathways Administrator faced competition from over 200 other applicants before securing the lead role.
Commenting on his recent win, Ekansh said:
“Having already helped so many young people with jobs, I hope my existing experience can empower other apprentices to develop their career.”
A2Dominon has recently recruited another round of apprentices to the business together with its joint venture Pyramid Plus.
The Ealing Apprenticeship Network is an initiative from Ealing Council to develop apprenticeship opportunities for young people.
