The Source team is celebrating after being recognised with two awards at the Yorkshire Training Partnership Work Based Learning Awards 2010.
The award ceremony, which is designed to recognise work based learning providers across Yorkshire, was held at the Holiday Inn Hotel in Rotherham on Friday 29th January. The Source faced competition from providers across the region and took the lead after winning the ‘Employee of the Year' award for Franca Kelly and ‘Employer of the Year' for Insight.
The Source nominated Insight as their employer of the year after Insight pioneered a new scheme in their organisation, introducing young people into their business and collaborating with The Source to support them in their learning and development.
The Insight Apprenticeship scheme became such a success that it is expected to be rolled out in other locations across the UK and potentially into mainland Europe in the near future.
Franca Kelly, Work Based Learning Team Leader and Tutor at The Source, was nominated by her peers due to the impact she has made on the businesses and learners she works with. Franca has worked for The Source for over four years and within that time has proven her dedication to The Source by going above and beyond in her work.
Pat Wilce, Work Based Learning Manager at The Source, said: "The Yorkshire Training Partnership Awards are the region's way of recognising work based learning providers and we are incredibly proud to receive two honours at this prestigious event. Our team at The Source are dedicated to their learners and the businesses they support and it is because of our unique approach to building relationships that we have developed an excellent reputation across the region."
Andy Heseltine, Operations Manager of Yorkshire Training Partnership, said: "The evening was a superb occasion and the first one which YTP has hosted. It was fantastic to see so many companies celebrating their achievements after a difficult economic year - the winners are superb examples, not only to the region's providers, but to all the training industry."
