A-Team is best in the UK

Home » Newsroom » Latest News » A-Team is best in the UK

Cheshire East Council's A-Team has firmly cemented its position as the best apprenticeship scheme in the country at the Training Journal (TJ) Awards. 

Host and broadcaster Daisy McAndrew told onlookers at the seventh annual awards at the Brewery in London last night that the A-Team had raised the bar and set a new standard in apprenticeships. 

Having already won a clutch of awards over the past two years, it triumphed in the face of tough opposition from the likes of Thomas Cook Group PLC, BAM Nuttall Ltd (judged in second) and Manchester marketing agency McCann (judged third). 

The awards are designed to inspire excellence and celebrate best practice in learning and development and there were more than 450 industry professionals in attendance.

The A-Team philosophy is built on Attitude, Teamwork, Energy, Action and Motivation and it currently offers best practice apprenticeship advice to other councils in England, as well as organisations within the private, wider public sector and Cheshire Chamber of Commerce members.

Alarm bells rung at this point and I told him I would need him to answer a couple of...
