BTC Virtual Apprenticeship Awards Ceremony Success! - Bridgwater & Taunton College

On Thursday 6 May 2021, BTC hosted our first Virtual Apprenticeship Awards ceremony live streamed from The McMillan Theatre.

The awards evening takes place every year and brings together our employer partners, apprentices and staff for an evening of celebrations in the McMillan Theatre.

Due to the restrictions in place, this year it was decided the celebrations would continue online for our apprentices and employers in a time where these achievements and support have been nothing short of extraordinary.

Judges selected 15 of the very best nominations from BTC apprentices and employers to receive recognition for their hard work and contribution to their organisation. Each of the finalist videos were featured in the evening and winners were announced by Matt Tudor, Director of Commercial Development, Strategy and Partnerships. A special thanks to Roger Smith from Bridgwater Chamber of Commerce for also participating in the evening and presenting the Small Employer of the Year Award.

The evening was a huge success and we wish to congratulate all of the finalists and winners on their successes!
