SWR at the Work-Based Learner AwardsWe were delighted to attend the very first Work-Based Learner Awards at Astley Cooper School on 9th May.
And what a night it was! Nathan Hansford, a student who completed his WBL in our Production Team, walked away with the Award for Resilience and Commitment—a testament to his hard work and our dedication to high-quality training.
SWR also won an award for completing all WBL schemes for the year. This was particularly special as we played a big part in helping Astley Cooper become only the second school in getting the project off the ground.
“We have really led the way in many aspects. The feedback from the school has been superb and our effort has not only had a positive effect on our two Work-Based Learners but all others. It’s an excellent way to support young people in the community”. Jason Lee - MD at SWR
About Work-Based Learning
WBL is an innovative programme which helps students into the work place through long-term work experience supported by the study around transferable skills at school. It is unique in the South East and is being run by The Astley Cooper and Adeyfield Schools in Hemel Hempstead.
