WAUKCE know which skills pay the bills

I know it was you, Fredo.

Back in March, Web Apps were entered in the Creative and Digital Skills category for Greater Manchester’s Skills for Business Awards 2014.

The awards are a celebration of local businesses, across all sectors, who are known for investing in the training and development of their staff. They are also focused on recognising institutes that support young people in their apprenticeship ambitions, as well as engaging with the needs of businesses in the region. Outstanding individuals, such as apprentices and other learners, will be honoured as well.

The event will be held on Thursday, 3rd July, at the Manchester Hilton in the iconic Beetham Tower, compered by Dara O Briain, comedian and host of  Mock the Week.

The Centre of Excellence’s Managing Director, Alan Sweeney, was invited to be part of the panel of assessors evaluating awards nominations. He spent the day with the panel looking at nominations, excepting those for the category we were in, of course! We’ll be hearing back from the folks at Skills for Business in the middle of this month – fingers crossed.
