Biggleswade based Liebherr GB Ltd wins National Apprenticeship Award


Liebherr GB Ltd from Biggleswade, Bedfordshire, was last month revealed as the BAE Systems Large Employer of the Year at the National Apprenticeship Awards at an exclusive ceremony at London’s Grosvenor House.

The Awards, now in their twelfth year, are run by the National Apprenticeship Service and recognise excellence in two areas: businesses that grow their own talent with apprentices and apprentices who have made a significant contribution to their workplaces.

The company was chosen as the winner in recognition of its commitment to developing young people through apprenticeships. 

Skills Minister Nick Boles said:

“Congratulations to Liebherr GB Ltd for your success at the National Apprenticeship Awards. Apprenticeships truly are set to be one of the great success stories of the decade, and Liebherr GB Ltd is a worthy ambassador. 

“We are committed to 3 million apprenticeships by 2020 so that even more businesses can follow Liebherr GB Ltd’s lead and reap the benefits of apprenticeships.”
